"वास्तवाच्या जाणीवांना वाचा यावी

तस बोलायचास

प्रज्ञेच्या दाहक हुंकारासारखा.

काळोख उजळत येणाऱ्या किरणांसारखा यायचा तुझा शब्द

नीतीच्या वाटा प्रकाशत

आयुष्याचे अर्थ दाखवत.

त्यातून दिसायचे नवे प्रश्न, नव्या दिशा

कुणाला गवसायचा प्रकाश, कुणाला संधी

तर कुणाला सापडायचे ते स्वत:च."
(चिंतन- बाबा आमटे , शब्दांकन - सुरेश द्वादशीवार)

माझा देवावर विश्वास नाही. माझा धर्मावर विश्वास नाही. पण देव आणि धर्म यावर विश्वास असणारे लाखो लोक माझ्या भोवती आहेत त्यांच्या पासून तुटून पडण्यावारही माझा विश्वास नाही. त्यांना माझ्या बरोबर खेचून नेण्यासाठी आवश्यक असणारी व्यवहारातील तडजोड करण्यास मी तयार आहे. विचारात मात्र करणार नाही. याच कारण अस आहे की विचार हे तुम्हाला कोणीकडे जायचं आहे याची दिशा दाखवणारे असतात आणि व्यवहार तिथपर्यंत तुम्हाला टप्या टप्याने खेचून नेण्यासाठी असतो. (माझा ध्येयवाद या व्याख्यानातून)
