You live not for yourselves; you cannot live for yourselves; a thousand fibers connect you with your fellow-men, and along those fibers, as along sympathetic threads, run your actions as causes, and return to you as effects.

–Henry Melvill, Golden Lectures for 1855.  Often misattributed to Herman Melville.
