You have gone through “Nonviolence – What it means” in the words of some of its most eminent practitioners. You may have possibly read some or many of them earlier as well.
But here, you read them consciously and possibly more than once. And you may have also shared and discussed these with others.
What do these quotes mean to you? How do their words resonate in your own thoughts and lives? How do these reflect or, how would you like these to be reflected in your life, in the life of your community or country?
Some quotes you would agree with or which may touch you intimately. Some others may remind you of some experience in your life or that of someone you know. There could also be some quotes that you do not agree with or your experience differs from.
“Nonviolence – What it means to me” – is just some suggestions or questions for you to just ponder over. Therein will lie the seeds of a better tomorrow that we can together nourish and work towards.
Think over –
What do these quotations mean to you?
Do these quotations help in your understanding of violence and nonviolence? How?
If you were asked to use these quotations, how would you use them?
If you were to choose three quotations for use – which would you choose? And why?
Have you experienced violence? What was your response?
If something similar were to happen today, would you respond in a different way? How and why?
Have you ever experienced or know of anyone using nonviolence in a situation of violence? Think about that.
Can you think of one current national or global example of violence, and how nonviolence as a response to that example would be important?
Encourage others too, to think of nonviolence as a positive trait and approach.
Thank you for your interest, concern and involvement.
