Freedom and responsibility go hand in hand, and aparigraha, the release of acquisitiveness, sharpens our ability to see the effects of our choices individually and collectively. In this interdependent world we need to make choices that best server the infinite web of interconnections rather than our individual preferences. — Michael Stone
