„Human beings are members of a whole,
In creation of one essence and soul. If one member is afflicted with pain,
Other members uneasy will remain. If you have no sympathy for human pain,
The name of human you cannot retain.“
<big>بنی آدم اعضای یک پیکرند که در آفرينش ز یک گوهرند</big> <p> <big>چو عضوى به درد آورد روزگار دگر عضوها را نماند قرار</big> <p> <big>تو کز محنت دیگران بی غمی نشاید که نامت نهند آدمی</big>

—  Musharrif Od-Dîn Sa'di, Alternative translation: The children of Adam are limbs of a whole Having been created of one essence. When the calamity of time afflicts one limb The other limbs cannot remain at rest. If you have no sympathy for the troubles of others You are not worthy to be called by the name of ""man"". Chapter 1, story 10

„It is a glorious destiny to be a member of the human race, though it is a race dedicated to many absurdities and one which makes many terrible mistakes“

—  Thomas Merton Priest and author 1915 - 1968
Context: It is a glorious destiny to be a member of the human race, though it is a race dedicated to many absurdities and one which makes many terrible mistakes: yet, with all that, God Himself gloried in becoming a member of the human race. A member of the human race! To think that such a commonplace realization should suddenly seem like news that one holds the winning ticket in a cosmic sweepstake.
