Nonviolence Mentality

"...Any battle, no matter how honorable and just it is believed to be, always has a price attached to it...
   We must refine our minds to the point where we can embrace the ... mentality of nonviolence and never let ourselves be drawn into the adrenal rush that is associated with any form of physical domination or competition...
   Walk away from confrontation before embracing it... Honor is based in the understanding that physical confrontation is never a necessity, only a choice."
