Tolstoy: Violence

"All violence consists in some people forcing others, under threat of suffering or death, to do what they do not want to do."
 ~ Leo Tolstoy

"I sit on man’s back choking him and making him carry me, and yet I assure myself and others that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his lot by all possible means, except getting off his back."
 ~ Leo Tolstoy
