Peace Quotes

---oOo--- ---oOo---web travel

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls
Where words come out from the depth of truth
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit
Where the mind is led forward
Into ever-widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom, let my world awake.
      Rabindranath Tagore

The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes from within
the souls of men when they realize their relationship, their oneness, with

it is within each of us. This is the real peace, and the others are but 
reflections of this. The second peace is that which is made between two 
individuals, and the third is that which is made between two nations. But

until there is first known that true peace which is within the souls of men.

which has animated the overwhelming majority of mankind through countless ages. This 
will to peace does not arise out of a cowardly desire to preserve one's life and property, 
but out of conviction that the fullest development of the highest powers of men can be 
achieved only in a world of peace.

can be at peace unless he has his freedom.
      Malcolm X
Peace is not the product of terror or fear.
Peace is not the silence of cemeteries.
Peace is not the silent revolt of violent repression.
Peace is the generous, tranquil contribution of all to the good of all.
Peace is dynamism. Peace is generosity. It is right and it is duty.
      Bishop Oscar Romero (1917-1980)

If there is to be peace in the world, There must be peace in the nations.
If there is to be peace in the nations, There must be peace in the cities.
If there is to be peace in the cities, There must be peace between neighbors.
If there is to be peace between neighbors, There must be peace in the home.
If there is to be peace in the home, There must be peace in the heart.
      Lao Tzu (570-490 B.C.)

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
 A time to be born, and a time to die; 
  A time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
   A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
    A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
     A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; 
      A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
       A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
        A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
         A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
         Ecclesiastes (ch. III, v. 1-8)
