Imagine a world without anger
“Imagine what a world would be like like if we conquered our anger! The danger of war would evaporate, armies would become unnecessary, and soldiers would have to look elsewhere for work. Machine guns, tanks, and nuclear weapons – instruments useful only to the angry mind – could be put away, as all conflicts, from wars between nations to quarrels between individuals, came to an end.
Even if this universal peace and harmony seems too much to hope for, imagine the freedom and peace of mind each of us individually would enjoy if we managed to free ourselves completely from the distorted and destructive mind of anger.”
