Love Letters

Some wise words from Thich Nhat Hanh:

There are pacifists who can write protest letters of great condemnation but who are incapable of writing a love letter. You have to write in such a way that the other person is receptive toward reading; you have to speak in such a way that the other person is receptive toward listening. If you do not, it is not worth the trouble to write or to speak. To write in such a way is to practice meditation.


He wrote that in reference to true love.

I think it applies everywhere. We truly are supposed to be some kind of different.
