Complexity: 
Easy

"As living entities, we can move, but a table cannot because it does not possess living force. Movement and activity may be considered to be signs or symptoms of the living force. Indeed, it may be said that there can be no activity without the living force."

Today's Smart Quote is from the Introduction to Teachings of Lord Caitanya:

The word caitanya means living force. As living entities, we can move, but a table cannot because it does not possess living force. Movement and activity may be considered to be signs or symptoms of the living force. Indeed, it may be said that there can be no activity without the living force. Although the living force is present in the material condition, it is not amrita, immortal. The words caitanya-caritamrita, then, may be translated as "the character of the living force in immortality."
