- Running is the fastest form of unaided locomotion available to humankind, apart from falling. To be able to run for a mile or more is a skill we should value and exercise, if we can. Fight gravity and inertia; allow your lungs and legs to show their courage. After a good run, lie on the ground and look up at the sky: you'll feel lightly connected to the earth, and conscious of the privilege of being.
- Examine your motivation as often as you can. Even before getting out of bed in the morning, establish a nonviolent outlook for your day. At night, examine what you did during the day.
- The implication is that we must think before we speak.
