Thích Nhất Hạnh: When We Are Armed With Compassion and Understanding

Human beings are not our enemy. 
Our enemy is not the other person. 
Our enemy is the violence, ignorance, and injustice 
in us and in the other person. When we are armed 
with compassion and understanding, 
we fight not against other people, but against the 
tendency to invade, to dominate, and to exploit.
- Thích Nhất Hạnh
