“You cannot stop fighting between the dogs and cats. Why there is fighting? Because the dog is thinking, “I am dog.” The cat is thinking “I am cat.” Similarly, if I think as Irishman, or “I am Englishman,” it is the same thing. As the dog is thinking, “I am dog,” so if I think, “I am Irishman,” “I am Englishman”, I am no better than the dog. As we cannot stop the fighting between dogs, similarly, so long people will remain in bodily concept of life, the fighting cannot be stopped.” — Rome, May 23, 1974
