I do my best to not specify my actual religious beliefs - they I can happily admit to belief in a single deity. As a general rule, however, I prefer prayer of thanksgiving and not 'gimme' - as compared to most of the worlds people I have a lot.

As per that quote - a mitzvah (when looked up) is a command from the bible but, in common usage, it seems to have evolved to mean "a good deed". Taking this latter interpretation, there's a companion quote somewhere on the page:

"If we each did a little more than we had to, none of us would have to do nearly as much."

The possibility for the world to be a much better place is right there in front of us all - just waiting . . . and waiting . . . and waiting . . .

Occasionally, someone does do this sort of thing and it makes the news. How sad that doing the right thing is newsworthy!

Here's an insight on how I can compartmentalize my views:
Which came first - the chicken or the egg?

My religious partition would say the chicken - it was created. My scientist side says the egg came first, but it wasn't laid by a chicken, but by something very much like one.
