Obama quotes Mandela

“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion … People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love… …For love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite,”
how can we expect those we wish to teach to hear us if we are yelling at them, and calling them evil?
how can we expect them to learn how a heart can love if our own hearts are filled with hate?

“Peace cannot be kept by force.”

“The true hero is one who conquers his own anger and hatred. When you master your emotions and you gain peace, you become the living example of a true hero.”

“Don’t let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace”
