‘Some gifts are so light and insubstantial that they can be given to others on a daily basis. One such gift is simple recognition, an affirmation in speech, gesture, or action, that someone else exists, and that they matter. Often we fail to grant this simple gift of recognition, and the more often we fail in that the more alienating our social world becomes.’ (The Six Perfections)

I was collecting quotes for my Zen Center talk on Wednesday, and even though I have used this one before (and posted it here before), it is too good not to use again.
