Voice of the Day: Thich Nhat Hanh

By Administrator 8-29-2007

[Y]ou cannot judge the value of an action based on whether or not it brings success. You have to judge the value of an action in relation to the action itself.... I think we may fail in our attempt to do things, yet we may succeed in the correct action when the action is authentically nonviolent, based on understanding, based on love.

- Thich Nhat Hanh
Interview by Catherine Ingram, In the Footsteps of Gandhi
