Lastly, I would like to end this article with a quote each by Mahatma Gandhi and Albert Einstein:
“I learnt from my illiterate but wise mother that all rights to be deserved and preserved
come from duty well done” – Mahatma Gandhi
“Every day, on hundred occasions, I remind myself that my mental and physical life depends on the toil of other persons, living or dead. So I must try to repay whatever
I have received and am receiving” – Albert Einstein
