Quote

I take as a fact that once we are born we would die, and that in living, we have different things invested in us as individuals, by our parents teachers and society. I believe the true test of our existence is whether at the point of our demise we are a net benefit to mankind or a net drain on the resources of mankind. I believe that if the world is not a better place because we lived, then there is no point our being born,. To put it another way, if we are a net drain on the resources of the earth / mankind, then it would have been better we were never born. - Sanya Soyannwo
