"Even though we've never met, deep down, I know you . . . because we are all the same. We are human beings - mentally, emotionally, physically, we are all the same."

"[Religions] are fundamentally different, but they all have the same goal: Warm-heartedness."

"From the day of birth to the last day, to death, compassion is the key to a meaningful life."

"[The purpose] of our hands is not for boxing, but for hugging."

"We cannot promote human value through law, through police, through force -- only through good qualities."

"All religions have the same potential to help humanity."
