"After every 'victory' you have more enemies." - Jeanette Winterson from the Sun magazine. 2011
Victory without compassion and respect for all is really a hollow event; one which can have lasting negative consequences. Many are the villains and those more noble in the efforts in history who failed to treat the vanquished with compassion and respect, and their efforts only invited revenge and their own demise. Jesus Christ, Martin Luther King, Mohandas Ghandi and Nelson Mandela are prime examples of those who rejected the use of violence and instead exhibited the greatest degree of compassion for their opponents. Their victories over darkness are long-lasting exhibits of passion infused with love, and a win-win philosophy. Do I exercise in respect and compassion in all that I am passionate about in my own life?
