"We can train ourselves to become more yielding, balanced, and flexible, giving up our rigid stances and fixed ideas." –Lama Surya Das

Next time you find yourself in a conflict with someone, instead of rushing to the barricades, sure that you know the truth of the situation, think to yourself, "Maybe he has a point." By being willing to let go even that much, you can create an opening that will allow better understanding between you.
