The Wisdom Of Bahá’í

“When a thought of war comes, oppose it by a stronger thought of peace. A thought of hatred must be destroyed by a more powerful thought of love. Thoughts of war bring destruction to all harmony, well-being, restfulness and content. Thoughts of love are constructive of brotherhood, peace, friendship, and happiness.”
Bahá’í Writings
“It is not for him to pride himself who loveth his own country, but rather for him who loveth the whole world. The earth is but one country, and mankind its citizens.”
Bahá’í Writings

Culture vs Civilization
All humans have a culture – except those raised by wolves – or as the saying goes for those without manners “were you raised in a barn?” I worked, a thousand times, with my children on how to hold a fork, the three words, please, thank you, I'm sorry. Manners taught by bears in childcare books on how to maintain their culture taught to me by my parents and their parents back in the mist of times lost. So they could have tea in the palace.
