A person may say that a religious ideal is the true ideal, or a moral, spiritual, or a practical life. Many people say it is much better to be in the world, to live in the world; others say it is better to live away from the wicked world, to get away and live in the forests, the jungles, or the caves. They say, "This is the only way to live." Others say, "Just make merry, eat, drink, and enjoy life." But others again say, "The good life is in the service of man; as much service as we can give, as much kindness, as much love, that is the ideal.'
