It has been said, "I think therefore I am." *

But in expanse, "I am therefore I want."

"I want therefore I need."

"I need therefore I work."

"I work therefore I earn."

"I earn therefore I save."

"I save therefore I invest."

"I invest therefore I care."

"I care therefore I serve."

"I serve therefore I give."

"I give therefore I love."

"I love therefore I pray."

"I pray therefore I kneel."

"I kneel therefore I bow."

"I bow therefore I am thankful."

"I am thankful and therefore I am blessed."

*Rene Decartes, French Philosopher, from Discourse on Method, 1637

Footnote: This is a progression of thought stemming from Rene Decartes' famous line. Notice how in its entirety, it forms the capital letter, "I," so neatly in Roman font.
