Helena Petrovna Blavatsky

"It is an occult law moreover, that no man can rise superior to his individual failings without lifting, 
be it ever so little, the whole body of which he is an integral part. In the same way no one can sin, 
nor suffer the effects of sin, alone. In reality, there is no such thing as 'separateness' and the 
nearest approach to that selfish state which the laws of life permit is in the intent or motive." 
— Helena Petrovna Blavatsky
