“Transcending violence is forged by the capacity to generate, mobilize and build the moral imagination. Stated simply, the moral imagination requires the capacity to imagine ourselves in: 

a) a web of relationships that includes our enemies;
b) the ability to sustain a paradoxical curiosity that embraces complexity without reliance on dualistic polarity;
c) the fundamental belief in and pursuit of the creative act;
d) and the acceptance of the inherent risk of stepping into the mystery of the unknown that lies beyond the far too familiar landscape of violence.” 

—John Paul Lederach
