“By sharing or cultures with each other we will learn.
And once we learn we will know.
And when we know we will understand.
And when we understand we can appreciate each other.
This is our vision for our people from the past, to the present and into the future.”

Aroha Crowchild, Maori Singer and Artist

„It is not for him to pride himself who loveth his own country, but rather for him who loveth the whole world. The Earth is but one country, and mankind its citizens.“

„Es rühme sich nicht, wer sein Vaterland liebt, sondern wer die ganze Welt liebt. Die Erde ist nur ein Land, und alle Menschen sind seine Bürger.“

(Baha’u’lláh 1817-1892)
