All human beings have an extraordinary destiny! Sometimes things brings us joy and, at other times, sadness. But these ups and downs are part of everyone's destiny. I believe the most important thing in this existence of ours is to do something that can be of benefit to others. What we need more than anything is to develop an attitude of altruism — that is what truly gives meaning to life."
