as our situation here becomes more and more polarized towards the 15th of august, i keep reminging myself of this but find that most people dont accept this as an appropriate attitude:

I try, but it's not always easy. I look at those words as a reminder to see all side of life. Ya know, like the edge on the coin. It's hard when strong emotions get in the way.
and yet an other one i like for our brother against brother situation now:
Buddha Sakayamuni:

"If you want to understand the causes that existed in the past, look at the results as they are manifested in the present. And if you want to understand what results will be manifested in the future, look at the causes that exist in the present.". 

thats along the line of 'we made our bed, now we have to lie in it' tooo bad for us israelis now
