Thoughts on effectively discussing politics:
1) Since none of us are mind-readers, it’s better to assume the other person’s convictions are just as sincere as our own unless they give us sufficient reason to think otherwise.
2) Actually listen to what the person is saying and, perhaps more crucially, what they’re trying to say because intentions matter here.
3) Notice your capacity to react to ideas that conflict with your belief system and—rather than interrupt the other person or suppress our own feelings—wait for them to finish their argument and then attempt to explain why that reaction occurred rather than why you believe they’re helplessly incorrect.

You do your job professionally and with passion. How it is interpreted is out of your control. Those who work on it can understand what was done and what needs to be done. Everything else is perception. You do your job and that’s all that matters!

It’s possible to understand the world from studying a leaf. You can comprehend the laws of aerodynamics, mathematics, poetry and biology through the complex beauty of such a perfect structure. It’s also possible to travel the whole globe and learn nothing.

The masculine and the feminine are two aspects of who you are. If to are too identifed with one part, you will be half a life.

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high, where knowledge is free. Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls. Where words come out from the depth of truth, where tireless striving stretches its arms toward perfection. Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit. Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever-widening thought and action. In to that heaven of freedom, my father, let my country awake!
Rabindranath Tagore, Gitanjali
