"If we just worry about the big picture, we are powerless. So my secret is to start right away doing whatever little work I can do. I try to give joy to one person in the morning, and remove the suffering of one person in the afternoon. If you and your friends do not despise the small work, a million people will remove a lot of suffering."- Sister Chan Khong -
"I came across the book Learning True Love: How I Practiced Nonviolent Social Change by Sister Chan Khong. After reading Sister Chan Khong's book, it became clear to me that her story needed to be told."- Meera Censor -
