Lift up the gates of ignorance

We must systematically spread the idea that it is wrong principles and rules of life we are to combat, not persons or peoples; that we cannot reform another person or nation until we have carefully searched in our own hearts and in our own nation for our faults and have recognised and shown a willingness to correct them. We must also continually spread the idea that force, coercion, revenge, hatred, cruelty, even the repetition of and clinging to the memory of wrongs we have suffered, are destructive forces which can only add to and never heal the wounds from which all the world is groaning together today.
