Quote of the day

ethAs thinking human beings, we can choose not to act and speak in a manner that is demeaning or shameful. Our natural proclivity for righteousness, or the ability to feel shame, can become our guide in behaving harmlessly and in harmony with other beings. Without it we would be untethered and absolutely free to act selfishly and destructively without impunity.

–Ajahn Sumano Bhikkhu with Emily Popp, from Meeting the Monkey Halfway
