Explore the value of Peace
Imagine what a harmonious world it could be if every single person, both young and old, shared a little of what he is good at doing.
Do your little bit of good where you are; its those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.
Archbishop Desmond Tutu
Until he extends his circle of compassion to include all living things, man will not himself find peace.
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
Each one has to find his peace from within. And peace to be real must be unaffected by outside circumstances.
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
Happiness is like a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.
One of the sanest, surest, and most generous joys of life comes from being happy over the good fortune of others.
Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.
When I say it's you I like, I'm talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch. That deep part of you that allows you to stand for those things without which humankind cannot survive. Love that conquers hate, peace that rises triumphant over war, and justice that proves more powerful than greed.

This is a great website 4 inspiration!
Having peace in our own lives should
be integral to achieving our own true happiness. How can we teach others learn what we haven't taught ourselves?
Crystal Bleu, PA
I know these years have been hard and the economy is bad, but if we all work together, I bet the world could be a much better place.
Hey bob, from Germany, I'll pray that you find peace one day too.
I think peace is alot more than a lack of physical violence. Peace is a mindsett. Anxiety worry anger fear (the root of all these emotions) leave no room for peace of mind or peace of body. Peace, such a radical mindsett of the 60's seems to be lost today not only in war but in the everyday lives how we conduct ourselves ... we need peace in our souls. in our walk and talk... its deep <3
