“When another person makes you suffer, it is because he suffers deeply within himself, and his suffering is spilling over. He does not need punishment; he needs help. That’s the message he is sending.”
Thich Nhat Hanh is such an inspiration, what a teacher for peace and unity! We need more people like him around, especially in this day and age. I am therefore extremely happy from the recent news that he is ‘out of the coma and smiling’ (He has been in a coma due to a brain aneurism for the past several weeks). This is one of my favorite quotes of his. I shall be posting some more over the next few days. I also recommend reading any of his books, which are all available on Amazon.com. ‘No Mud No Lotus’ is a great one to start with! I will be posting some of my own reviews on his books.
