The basis of unity is humility. If everyone puts others before himself, then friction does not arise. Disunity stems from everyone putting himself first and wishing that his utterances should reign supreme. If no one considered himself superior there would be no quarrels.


In everyday matter, where there is none of the stress and strain of opposition, no one has difficulty in being tolerant. It is only in situations fraught with conflict, that the truly tolerant man will prove his mettle.
