Against Separatism

" When you call yourself an Indian or a Muslim or a Christian or a European, or anything else, you are being violent. Do you see why it is violent? Because you are separating yourself from the rest of mankind. When you separate yourself by belief, by nationality, by tradition, it breeds vilolence."
~Jiddu Krishnamurti~
I really love this. If more and more people would just give this a little thought, I believe, the world would be a better place. Anyone agree??

My favorite words on this subject were spoken by Mother Teresa...I know I've used this quote alot, but it is so good:
"If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other."
