How to Conquer - Gandhi

“Whenever you are confronted with an opponent. Conquer him with love.”-Mahatma Gandhi

Love finds a path to understanding that we would not find on our own. The opponent's defensiveness falls away. When we make an attempt to understand we discover the perspective of another. You can only conquer with love, if you are brave enough to be vulnerable, and willing to face the possibility of being wrong. When we conquer with love, we conquer ourselves.
