"There are already seeds of peace in those we call 'hawks,' but they
need us to water their seeds of peace and understanding or else their
seeds of anger and aggression will continue to dominate them. Do not
feel discouraged. Just by your way of looking at things and doing
things you influence others. Approach everyone with love and
patience, and try to water the positive seeds in them. We have to
help each other, being skillful, kind and understanding. Blaming and
arguing never help."
~ Thich Nhat Hanh, "Love in Action"
