Peace in the world depends on peace in the hearts of individuals.

As the Tibetan expression has it, even if the rope breaks nine times, we must splice it back together a tenth time. In this way, even if ultimately we do fail, at least there will be no feelings of regret.



****


Treat everyone as if they were a close friend.
