Conflicts need to be resolved at the earliest

Once upon a time, a disciple asked a monk, “Which is
the easiest time to resolve a conflict?”

The monk questioned, “Can you uproot a sapling?”

The disciple replied, “Yes.”

“Can you uproot a bush?” asked the monk.

“With some strength, it is possible,” replied the disciple.

The monk further questioned, “With all your strength,
can you uproot a tree?”

The disciple replied, “No, I don’t think I can uproot a
tree.”

The monk said, “The easiest time to resolve a conflict is
when it is still a sapling.”
