CHAPTER 10

Getting Along With Others

 Continues….

Dealing With Inharmonious Relationships

When there is a fight, at least two parties are involved. So there can be no fight with you if you refuse to participate.

******

If someone speaks to you in hurtful language, remain quiet, or say, “I am sorry if I have done something to offend you,” and then remain silent.

******

The spiritual man conquers wrath by calmness, stops quarrels by keeping silence, dispels inharmony by being sweet of speech, and shames discourtesy by being thoughtful of others.

******

There is no more liberating action than sincerely to give people kindness in return for unkindness.
