Letter from Pierre Teilhard de Chardin to Max Bégouën – 8 August 1936 :
”  The truth is that we don’t have to worry about our results, but only about the loyalty and tension of our desire and effort. However personal we may be, our action can only be measured in terms of its contribution to a universal effect that goes beyond us. The drop of water does not know exactly what it brings to the river : it must be enough for it to move in the direction of the river. I have long ago given up asking myself what my individual life is worth, and I am content to think that I belong to Life and I found great peace and freedom there. ”        [The radiance of a friendship – Correspondence with the Begouën family (1922-1955), Lessius, 2011, p. 97)
