My Inspirational Statue
made man, the statue I greatly admire and the principle I strongly
believe. "... left to his own devices, man will use his god-given talents to
be creative, productive, and prosperous. Using free will, he will better his
own situation and that of those around him, thereby influencing in a positive
way his own destiny..."

"... get up, and set your shoulder to the wheel-how long is
this life for? as you have come into this world, leave some mark behind.
otherwise where is the difference between you and the trees and stones? - they
too come into existence, decay and die..." - Swami
