I consider non-violence to be compassion in action. It doesn’t mean weakness, cowering in fear, or simply doing nothing. It is to act without violence, motivated by compassion, recognizing the rights of others.

A more peaceful world and a more peaceful century require that we rely not on weapons but on developing a widespread inner peace.
On a mental level kindness and compassion give rise to lasting joy. They reduce fear.
Compassion brings us peace of mind. It brings a smile to our face and genuine smiles bring us closer together.
We experience happiness on a sensory level that is relatively short-lived. But lasting happiness is related to our state of mind.

Since loving kindness is the basis of a happy life, It’s my number one commitment to promote awareness of the importance of warm-heartedness
There is no fortitude like patience, just as there is no destructive emotion worse than hatred. Therefore, practice patience and tolerance.

Education today needs not only to develop our intelligence, but also to support basic human values of warm-heartedness and compassion.
If you have a warm heart and you care for others you'll be happy and the community in which you live will be happier too.
We all want to live a happy life, so we have to learn to live together in trust and mutual respect.
If we were really to see one another as brothers and sisters, there would be no basis for division, cheating and exploitation among us.
Fear and suspicion won’t help us live together. We have to cultivate warm-heartedness.
Inner beauty, warm-heartedness and compassion, is what brings about peace of mind.
When I heard scientists say they had evidence that basic human nature is compassionate, I thought, 'There’s real hope.'

By learning to be more warm-hearted we can create a more compassionate world.
You may control people physically by force, but you won’t change their hearts and minds—that requires trust and friendship.
Just as we protect our health by observing physical hygiene, by tackling our destructive emotions with skill we’ll achieve emotional hygiene
Using harsh words reflects narrow-mindedness—to be happy and joyful we need friends. Friendship is based on trust and treating others kindly
As a human brother I'm committed to letting people know that we all possess the seeds of love and compassion.
