Personal Quote:

[ on the greatest obstacle to peace] Disagreement is produced by its own suspicion, hatred, mistrust. The greatest problem today is mistrust. Mistrust produces terror, and each side blames the other side. So it's a machine that works for itself, and we have to bring it down. People will say it's impossible, but that is nonsense.
