31 – Strive For Mercy, Seek Kindness

A weapon is a thoughtless tool.
When you are angry, be careful.
Remember, violence has no mind.

Enter into conflict in sadness,
after all positive avenues have been explored.
And then be wary of savoring victory.

Cleverness in conflict is not to be praised.
Resist the temptation to blame.
Strive for mercy, seek kindness.
