What a Baptist minister once said, about a Buddhist monk...

If anyone of us ever think, that we cannot work toward common goals with a person (or certain people) because "he is not like me", "she thinks differently from me", "he was born somewhere else", "she is from a different religion", "he is not very rational", "she will not agree with me", etc, keep in mind what an American Baptist Minister once said, about a Vietnamese Buddhist Monk:

"Thich Nhat Hanh is a holy man, for he is humble and devout. He is a scholar of immense intellectual capacity. His ideas for peace, if applied, would build a monument to ecumenism, to world brotherhood, to humanity." (Martin Luther King Jr., in nominating Thich Nhat Hanh for the Nobel Peace Prize).
