When we speak or hear the words thank you, the armor falls from our hearts and we communicate on a deep level. "Thank you" is the essence of nonviolence. It contains respect for the other person, humility and a profound affirmation of life. It possesses a positive, upbeat optimism. It has strength. A person who can sincerely say thank you has a healthy, vital spirit, each time we say those words, our hearts sparke and life force wells up within us. - Ikeda Sensei, The Wisdom for Creating Happiness and Peace.
