Daily Quote: Nonviolence

Nonviolence is the highest form of humility; it is supreme courage.

To end the human institution of war and relegate it to history along with such barbarous practices as slavery—at one time also considered a natural and inevitable “part of human nature”—we must establish respect for the inviolable dignity of human life as the core value of our age.

One who never uses violence is strong, and a person of true courage.

“Nonviolence” does not merely mean to refrain from violence. Violence erupts when one person blames another for a problem or conflict. Conversely, nonviolence is a way of life in which one resolves, “Let me be the one to change first.” If this spirit were to be embraced, how much more at peace would our families and society itself be.

“Thank you” is the essence of nonviolence. It contains respect for the other person, humility and a profound affirmation of life.
