"Every day we see or read of appalling things happening in the world as the result of violence in man. You may say, 'I can't do anything about it', or, 'How can I influence the world?' I think you can tremendously influence the world if in yourself you are not violent, if you lead actually every day a peaceful life - a life which is not competitive, ambitious, envious - a life which does not create emnity. Small fires can become a blaze."

- J. Krishnamurti, Freedom from the Known, p. 118
