I recommend the art of slow reading.

Every single pleasure I can imagine or have experienced is more delightful,
more of a pleasure, if you take it in small sips,
if you take your time.
Reading is not an exception.
- Amos Oz

Two children of same cruel parent look at one another
and see in each other the image of the cruel parent
or the image of their past oppressor.
This is very much the case between Jew and Arab:
It's a conflict between two victims.
- Amos Oz

One of the things I wanted to introduce in The Same
Sea beyond transcending the conflict,
is the fact that deep down below all our secrets are the same.

If we don't stop somewhere, if we don't accept an unhappy compromise,
unhappy for both sides, if we don't learn how to unhappily
coexist and contain our burned sense of injustice -
if we don't learn how to do that,
we end up in a doomed state.
- Amos Oz

I have seen for the first time in 100 years of conflict,
the two peoples - the Israeli people and the Palestinian people -

a clash between one very powerful, very convincing,
very painful claim over this land and another no less powerful,
no less convincing claim.

the more cultured it was considered.

It is crystal clear to me that if Arabs put down a
draft resolution blaming Israel for the recent earthquake
in Iran it would probably have a majority,
the U.S.
would veto it and Britain and France would abstain.
- Amos Oz

But The Same Sea is set precisely in this Israel,
which never makes it to the news headlines anywhere.
It is a novel about everyday people far removed from fundamentalism,
fanaticism nationalism, or militancy of any sort.
- Amos Oz

I wrote a novel about Israelis who live their own lives
on the slope of a volcano.
Near a volcano one still falls in love,
one still gets jealous, one still wants a promotion,
one still gossips.
- Amos Oz

I wrote The Same Sea not as a political allegory about
Israelis and Palestinians.
I wrote it about something much more gutsy and immediate.
I wrote it as a piece of chamber music.
- Amos Oz

find an ample measure of my own joy.

Adding one to my count of days, or postponing
a feared death by another day do not inspire me.
I live to experience something new each day -
to learn something new, meet a new friend,
bring joy into someone's life,
feel the wind newly on my skin,
touch a new fear, a new anger,
and with focused intent and good fortune,
find an ample measure of my own joy.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

"Mother Teresa Prayer"
People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
... Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you
of selfish, ulterior motives;
... Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some
false friends and some true enemies;
... Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
... Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
... Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
... Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
... Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
... Give the world the best you've got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.
We can do no great things - only small things with great love.
- although commonly attributed to Mother Teresa,
who kept a copy of this prayer on
the wall of her Calcutta orphanage,
this prayer was actually written by Kent Keith.

Stand up to your obstacles
and do something about them.
You will find that they haven't
half the strength you think they have.

expecting to find it, you surely will.

something to motivate you,
something to inspire you.

I choose to adapt to the circumstances in which I find myself.
I choose to be flexible in my dealings with those around me.
I understand that my way is not the only way -
that inner peace comes from respecting the ways of others,
and that, if I am open, I may gain great insights and happiness
from the ideas and traditions of others.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority,
it is time to pause and reflect.
