Opposites Attract

The essence of peace is to connect two opposites.

If you see somebody whose opinion is the very opposite of yours, don't believe that it is impossible to be at peace with him.

Also, if you see two people (peoples) that are two opposites - don't say it is impossible to make peace between them.

On the contrary, that is the essence of the completeness of peace - to make peace prevail between two opposites.

- Rabbi Nachman of Bratislav

Rabbi Nachman , 1772-1811, a mystic and ascetic, was one of the most celebrated Ukrainian Hassidic rabbis. He has many followers in Israel and elsewhere
