“Life is experience, experience in relationship. One cannot live in isolation; so life is relationship and relationship is action. And how can one have that capacity for understanding relationship which is life? Does not relationship mean not only communion with people but intimacy with things and ideas? Life is relationship, which is expressed through contact with things, with people, and with ideas. In understanding relationship we shall have capacity to meet life fully, adequately.”

J. Krishnamurti, The First and Last Freedom (1954)
