or put them on the right paths,
but the final forming of a person's character
lies in their own hands.

My vision of a real humanity is of pure individuals
relating to each other, but not tied in any relationship.

all their joys and all their blessings,
but never even in their dreams thinking of dominating,
thinking of enslaving the other person.
- Osho (Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh)
