>"If our own and others' welfare were totally unrelated and_________________________________________________________________
>independent of one another, we could make a case for neglecting
>others' welfare. But that is not the case. I am always related to
>others and heavily dependent on them, no matter what my level of
>spiritual development: while I am unenlightened, while I am on the
>path, and also once I have achieved enlightenment. If we reflect
>along these lines, the importance of working for the benefit of
>others becomes naturally apparent."-- His Holiness the Dalai Lama,
>from 'The Compassionate Life', available from Snow Lion Publications.

Here's something to share! :)
>"Non-violence and peace do not mean that we remain indifferent,_________________________________________________________________
>passive. Problems and contradictions always remain. I believe that
>as long as human beings remain, as long as human intelligence is
>present, some kind of conflict, some kind of contradiction always
>remains. If we look at contradictory or different ideas, they are
>not necessarily negative. Even if we consider our body, many
>elements co-exist. These elements oppose one another- they are
>contradictory. Forces that contradict one another are the basis of
>further development; things stay more balanced and that is healthy.
>Therefore, as long as this smart human brain remains, some kind of
>contradiction is always there. Even within one single person-
>because of the power of imagination, the power of vision, you get
>different ideas: in the morning something different, and in the
>evening something different. There are big differences,
>contradictions. Sometimes they are so great that, if one lacks the
>ability to overcome them, even suicide sometimes can occur.
>"What we need is a method, a technique, to overcome these
>contradictions. That is compromise. In today's reality the only way
>to solve a problem is compromise. Since your interest is very much
>related with others' interest, you can't sacrifice others'
>interests. Therefore compromise, 50-50. Realistically speaking,
>there is no possibility of 100 percent victory for oneself."
>--H.H. the Dalai Lama, from 'The Art of Peace: Nobel Peace Laureates
>Discuss Human Rights, Conflict, and Reconciliation', published by
>Snow Lion Publications.

>"According to my experience, it is clear that if each individual_________________________________________________________________
>makes an effort then he or she can change. Of course, change is not
>immediate and it takes a lot of time. In order to change and deal
>with emotions it is crucial to analyze which thoughts are useful,
>constructive and beneficial to us. I mean mainly those thoughts
>which make us calmer, more relaxed and which give us peace of mind,
>versus those thoughts which create uneasiness, fear and frustration."-
>- His Holiness the Dalai Lama, from 'The Dalai Lama's Book of
>Wisdom', available from Snow Lion Publications.
