Each of us has a terrorist inside, a mad impulse to abandon that which is rightfully ours, to blow ourselves to smithereens.

You cannot outsmart it, for it has hijacked the mind that you use. It believes it is you; you believe you are it.

No peace can be made with it, no compromise—for compromise is the name of its game, step by step to your oblivion.

You cannot even recognize its existence—for that would be your admission that evil has a place in G‑d’s world.

There is only one solution:

If you know what is right, do that.

Do not stop to look backwards—certainly not to negotiate with a terrorist.

Tanya, chapter 28.
