One Sacred Body

All human beings are members
of one sacred body.
Every person is a beam
shining out from a single gem.
When the world causes pain for one member,
how could the other members ever rest in peace?
If you lack grief for another one’s sorrow,
how can you call yourself a human being?

—Sa’adi, translated by Lynn Bauman
