People are afraid that if they
let go of their anger and righteousness and wrath, and look at their own
feelings—and even see the good in a bad person—they're going to lose the energy
they need to do something about the problem. But actually you get more strength
and energy by operating from a place of love and concern. You can be just as
tough, but more effectively tough.
- Robert Thurman, "Rising to
the Challenge: Cool Heroism"
