THE PEACEFUL REVOLUTION
"Sometimes someone we love----our child, our spouse, or our parent----
says or does something cruel and we suffer and get angry.
We think it is only we who suffer.
But the other person is suffering as well.
If he wasn't suffering, he wouldn't have spoken or acted out of anger.
The person we love doesn't know a way out of his suffering."
