Seek freedom and become captive of your desires; seek discipline and find your liberty.
Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it.
Keep your middle finger down.
Neither peace nor war exists independently of us. Political and military leaders have grave responsibilities with respect to peace – but they too are members of the society that we as individuals help to create. Peace in the world depends on peace in the hearts of individuals; this depends on each of us practising ethics by disciplining our negative thoughts and emotions, and developing basic spiritual qualities.
