Rudolf Steiner, Motto of Social Ethics, 1920 (at end of first full year of first Waldorf School founded 1919)

The healing social life is found when in the mirror of each human being the whole community finds its reflection, and when in the community the strength of each one is living.

La vida social saludable se encuentra cuando en el espejo de cada ser humano la comunidad entera se encuentra reflejada y en la comunidad vive la virtud de cada uno.

尋找到健康之社交生活, 就是當每個人對著鏡子 能從整個社區的影像中找 到自己的反映, 這樣在社區內每人都能活 出精彩。

Heilsam ist nur, wenn Im Spiegel der Menschenseele sich bildet die ganze Gemeinscaft Und in der Gemeinschaft Lebet der Einzel Seele Kraft
