The Key Idea That Inspired Phil: "I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are the greatest treasures." — Lao Tzu

The Real-Life Lesson for All of Us: "Spirituality is about the ability to incorporate other beings in your plans, in what you're doing, or saying, in your day-to-day job. It’s keeping in mind, 'My actions create actions that other people have to deal with. And my best nature elevates their nature.'" — Phil Jackson
