Explore the value of Peace
It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace.
Agnes M. Pharo
Ultimately, we have just one moral duty: to reclaim large areas of peace in ourselves, more and more peace, and to reflect it towards others. And the more peace there is in us, the more peace there will be in our troubled world.
Peace is the result of retraining your mind to process life as it is, rather than as you think it should be.
Dr. Wayne Dyer
Mary Helen Doyle
Happiness is like a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.
In the end the aggressors always destroy themselves, making way for others who know how to cooperate and get along. Life is much less a competitive struggle for survival than a triumph of cooperation and creativity.
We look forward to the time when the power to love will replace the love of power. Then will our world know the blessing of peace.
Mary Helen Doyle
Compassion is the sometimes fatal capacity for feeling what it is like to live inside somebody else's skin. It's the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too.
It is thus tolerance that is the source of peace, and intolerance that is the source of disorder and squabbling.

Personal Stories About ‘Peace’
A Sacred SpaceSubmitted by Mack Dreyfuss
In the brilliant space of time where the roar of the workweek echoes into silence, I was in the kitchen. I cleared the counters of crusted dishes until they dripped and shone in the rack. The clothes dryer hummed. An occasional car engine whispered by. Earlier that morning, my pregnant wife assisted our three...
A Glorious MorningSubmitted by Pam
A Glorious Morning by Pam A gentle breeze ruffled the curtains, bringing with it the fragrant scent of roses. The call of songbirds floated through the air. Lying on the cool, crisp sheets was comforting, but this promised to be a glorious morning. Sliding quietly from the covers and slipping...
Vengeance Solves NothingSubmitted by Tristan
Vengeance Solves Nothing In my welding class, nearly every day, a group of punks walk up to me and start screwin’ around like a bunch of monkeys. They make fun of me, nudge me, and don’t stop bugging me. The rage inside of me boils like that of a volcano. Only one man can share this feeling: Kratos, the God of...

Though I am lacking in hard facts, I greatly admire the work of Pierre De Coubertin in bringing back the spirit of the ancient Olympic Games. Though the modern world has yet to adopt the "Olympic Truce" during the Games; the Olympic Village established during competition allows athletes from many nations to...

Vardie was in WWII. He was not an Aldey Murrey type. His job had no fanfare, he worked in supply. His story starts at the end of his career in the army when dive bombers hit his group in north Africa. Six weeks later he woke up on a red cross ship and they told him he was the only survivor. It was a tremendously...

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
