"No one wants war or misery, but why is there still so much of both in the world? They exist because people still feel so much pleasure in suffering. Not that long ago, people would all too easily kill one another, and even cheer over bloodshed. This memory is still present in our cells. In order for us to transform the world and create a culture of peace, we must become aware of this pleasure and cut away our knots of attachment to suffering."
