Rabbi Yerucham Levovitz, as quoted in Smiling Each Day, Rabbi Avraham Twerski (New York: Mesorah Publications, 1993)

The seismograph has taught us that a tremor in any part of the world can be felt by a sufficiently sensitive instrument everywhere in the world. The same is true of a person’s deeds. One should not think that one's actions do not affect others. Everything one does in some way affects everyone else in the world. [Avraham Twerski translation]
