Sa’adi Poetry “Bani Adam” Inscribed On United Nations Building Entrance

The sons of Adam are limbs of each other,

Having been created of one essence.

The other limbs cannot remain at rest.

If you have no sympathy for the troubles of others,

You are unworthy to be called by the name of a Human.
