"Peace ..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 to be calm in your heart." - Unknown
"Our true home is the present moment. To live in the present moment is a miracle. The miracle is not to walk on water. The miracle is to walk on the green earth in the present moment, to appreciate the peace and beauty there available now. Peace is all around us – in the world and in nature – and within us – in our bodies and our spirits. Once we learn to touch this peace, we will be healed and transformed. We need only find ways to bring our body and mind back to the present moment so we can touch what is refreshing, healing and wonderous."
- Thich Nhat Hanh (Touching Peace: Practicing the Art of Mindful living)
"All we are saying is give peace a chance."
- John Lennon
"We have just enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us love one another."
- Jonathan Swift
"Without first developing inner peace, outer peace is impossible"
- Ven. Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
"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 neighbours.
If there is to be peace among neighbours, There must be peace in the home.
If there is to be peace in the home, There must be peace in the heart."
- Kate McKenzie (The Peace Room)
