1000 Quotes about Peace

“You really think the world will ever know peace? Is that how you see the world” Malacey asked softly
“That’s how the world can be seen” his friend replied with a smile.”

Obengbia Leyony

“It partook … of eternity … there is a coherence in things, a stability; something, she meant, is immune from change, and shines out (she glanced at the window with its ripple of reflected lights) in the face of the flowing, the fleeting, the spectral, like a ruby; so that again tonight she had the feeling she had had once today, already, of peace, of rest. Of such moments, she thought, the thing is made that endures.”
Virginia Woolf

“…I fear that some of us understand just enough about the gospel to feel guilty–guilty that we are not measuring up to some undefinable standard–but not enough about the Atonement to feel the peace and strength, the power and mercy it affords us.”
Sheri Dew

“On faith’s battered back calm eyes etch prayers that cool a nation’s hot rage.”
Aberjhani

“Now stir the fire, and close the shutters fast,
Let fall the curtains, wheel the sofa round,
And, while the bubbling and loud hissing urn
Throws up a steamy column and the cups
That cheer but not inebriate, wait on each,
So let us welcome peaceful ev’ning in.”

William Cowper

“Good literature is one key to peace. When we stop reading each other, when we stop paying attention to each other’s words and stories, we too easily oppose one another.”
Dave DiGrazie

“The brainless serenity of charwomen and janitors working late at night came over us. In a messy world we were at least making our little corner clean.”
Kurt Vonnegut

“That was one of the inherent flaws of faith. Belief without knowing. But worse yet: belief without action. It could be good in its own right. Beautiful, even, when embraced, but that had to be measured. Checked. Too many surrendered themselves to it. What they did not see was simple fact. Religion did not bring peace. It merely offered a means. It was up to man to create peace.”
Chris Galford

“[Y]ou were too alert to the figurative possibilities of words not to see the phrase [angle of repose] as descriptive of human as well as detrital rest. As you said, it was too good for mere dirt; you tried to apply it to your own wandering and uneasy life … I wonder if you ever reached it.”
Wallace Stegner

“Europe, it is true, is a geographical and, within certain limits, an historical cultural conception. But the idea of Europe as an economic unit contradicts capitalist development in two ways. First of all there exist within Europe among the capitalist States – and will so long as these exist – the most violent struggles of competition and antagonisms, and secondly the European States can no longer get along economically without the non-European countries. … At the present stage of development of the world market and of world economy, the conception of Europe as an isolated economic unit is a sterile concoction of the brain. …
And if the idea of a European union in the economic sense has long been outstripped, this is no less the case in the political sense.
….
Only were one suddenly to lose sight of all these happenings and manoeuvres, and to transfer oneself back to the blissful times of the European concert of powers, could one say, for instance, that for forty years we have had uninterrupted peace. This conception, which considers only events on the European continent, does not notice that the very reason why we have had no war in Europe for decades is the fact that international antagonisms have grown infinitely beyond the narrow confines of the European continent, and that European problems and interests are now fought out on the world seas and in the by-corners of Europe.”

Rosa Luxemburg

“By practicing meditation we establish love, compassion, sympathetic joy & equanimity as our home.”
Sharon Salzberg

“Through the heartfelt mercies of our God,
God’s Sunrise will break in upon us,
Shining on those in the darkness,
those sitting in the shadow of death,
Then showing us the way, one foot at a time,
down the path of peace.”

Luke 1:78-79, The Message

“Some Minds are blessed to be in Peace. (They Stay in Peace where ever they Are, whatever they do)
And some People throw themselves to break the Peace of Mind in Pieces.”

tausif

“Sex was the first dove.”
Parker Tyler

“Unconditional conditions are sometimes conditioned to conditionally exist.”
Awatef A

“When I reach the end of one row, I continue straight on away from the barn and the farm and the road. I walk until I come to a pile of hay bales and plop myself down. The sun is bright and the air is sharp. In the distance I hear the lowing of cows. It’s so peaceful here.

“Merry Christmas, ” I whisper to myself. “Merry Christmas, Nate.”
Lisa Ann Sandell

“We can remove the veil that shrouds our understanding and made us forget who we truly are. When we understand the core self and live from the core self, the myth of separation, concepts of separation, color, religion, class, intelligence…all these fade away. We are not our color. We are not our religion. We are not our sexual preference. We are human beings. We are spiritual beings.”
Cassandra Blizzard

“We’re all latchkey kids a threshold from peace.”
S. Kelley Harrell

“The bottom line is this: Peace will come to Israel and the Middle East only when the Israeli government is willing to comply with international law, with the Roadmap for Peace, with official American policy, with the wishes of a majority of its own citizens–and honor its own previous commitments–by accepting its legal borders. All Arab neighbors must pledge to honor Israel’s right to live in peace under these conditions. The United States is squandering international prestige and goodwill and intensifying global anti-American terrorism by unofficially condoning or abetting the Israeli confiscation and colonization of Palestinian territories.”
Jimmy Carter

“The nature of the world is to be calm, and enhance and support life, and evil is an absence of the inclination of matter to be at peace.”
Gregory Maguire

“Peace be upon you, for you have persevered! How excellent, then, this fulfilment in the hereafter!”
Anonymous

“As a Nobel Peace laureate, I, like most people, agonize over the use of force. But when it comes to rescuing an innocent people from tyranny or genocide, I’ve never questioned the justification for resorting to force. That’s why I supported Vietnam’s 1978 invasion of Cambodia, which ended Pol Pot’s regime, and Tanzania’s invasion of Uganda in 1979, to oust Idi Amin. In both cases, those countries acted without U.N. or international approval—and in both cases they were right to do so.”
José Ramos-Horta

“You [demagogues] are like the fishers for eels; in still waters they catch nothing, but if they thoroughly stir up the slime, their fishing is good; in the same way it’s only in troublous times that you line your pockets.”
Aristophanes

“بدلاً من أن نمقت أعدائنا ينبغي أن نشفق عليهم، وأن نحمد الله عز وجل على أنه لم يخلقنا مثلهم.”
كلارنس وارد

“Great compassion makes a peaceful heart. A peaceful heart makes a peaceful person. A peaceful person makes a peaceful family. A peaceful family makes a peaceful community. A peaceful community makes a peaceful nation. A peaceful nation makes a peaceful world.”
Maha Ghosananda
