There is a little note tacked up on the front of my refrigerator. A couple of typed lines on a torn piece of paper. I will frequently do this when I find a quote that resonates with me, or one I hope will speak to my children.

There is one word which may serve as a rule of practice for all one’s life – reciprocity. ~Confucius
