Self-control: a characteristic of civilisation

URI Europe Proverb, October 2017


'The state of nature is a state of war' said Thomas Hobbes. Every warrior has a convincing and distinct reason why the other should be destroyed: he kills to 'live'. History teaches us that if we do not succeed in conquering every 'warfare', struggle will be our permanent condition.

We rise against the old motive that characterises biological life: to kill in order to live. During the previous centuries humankind made conscious choices, not only because our insight and knowledge increased, but also because we took charge of our responsibility along the way. We exchanged the old principles and tried to find a morally justified way of dealing. While thinking about our behaviour we acquired a morality that allows us to live life in such a way that there is a life and a future for everyone.

Go outside. Let the world in.


URI Europe Proverb, September 2017


Ask any traveler about their strongest experience and a story of an encounter invariably follows. When we meet people not only face to face, but 'heart to heart', we experience this as something special.

When travelling, each one of us recognizes the feeling of being out of one's comfort zone.

Far away everything is different. Also the people. When we position ourselves at eye level of the 'foreigner' , we come to know him with an open mind , we enter his world and everything becomes different.
