Book quote #7

“What does it mean to be harmless? It means being so strong that you do not need to harm a creature. That is what it means: You are so able and empowered that the idea of showing power through harm is not even a part of your consciousness. Without genuine humility, you cannot have this kind of power because power leaves you when you feel that the situation that you are in, or the people you are with, do not command your respect”
