I Can Convince You

I Can Convince You
I Know I Can!

I have gathered quotes I like and now have a collection of two years and four months worth of wonderful sayings or very, very short poems. On February 12 this one emerged again:

 Try never to ignore or talk away someone’s perception. Instead, try to understand where it is rooted.           ——John Paul Lederach

In 2006 I read his book The Little Book of Conflict Transformation, and in 2010 I read The Moral Imagination. He has been at the Joan B. Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies at the University of Notre Dame for many years. And then he has traveled all over the world to put his teachings into practice in places of conflict.

But go back to the quote a minute:  Try never to ignore or talk away someone’s perception. Instead, try to understand where it is rooted.— Lederach

Sometimes I do the opposite in a conversation, try to talk so that you give up what you believe and jump right over to what I believe.

Hmmm…I might just try Lederach’s tactic: try to understand the roots of where you’re coming from.
