Unity in Variety

I am not the standard of the Universe. The apple tree should not be judged by the standard of the oak, nor the oak by that of the apple. To judge the apple tree you must take the apple standard, and for the oak, its own standard. 

Not all men and women in any society are of the same mind, capacity, or power to do things. They must have different ideals and we have no right to sneer at any ideal. Let everyone do the best they can to realise their own ideal. Unity in variety is the plan of creation.

Swami Vivekananda
