Because of our many sins the evil inclination to quarrel for nothing has become very powerful, when in truth all us nonsense and evilness of breath, for what will the honor that he will gain help him, and what will the abuse that he receives from a man who is a nonentity affect him?
How amazing would it be if at a time of dispute one of the parties who is a man who fears Hashem and seeks peace, would be able to bring his adversary also towards peace, for it is impossible for dispute to exist with only one person. The problem is that both sides are equally bad, and each one tries to say that he is greater than the other and does not understand why he should “degrade” himself to be under the other. This causes the dispute to multiply and grow greater. How good it would be if they realize that the one who degrades himself to seek peace is the one who rises spiritually.
