Peace defined: Freedom from quarrels and disagreement; harmonious relations Inner contentment; serenity

“If at some stage, inner agitation is aroused, there is always the possibility that in the course of its development the road to peace may unfold itself. When one is anchored in patience the path to peace opens out.” – Anandamayee Ma

“Jagat (world) means ceaseless movement, and obviously there can be no rest in movement. How could there be peace in perpetual coming and going? Peace
reigns where no coming exists and no going, no melting and no burning.
Reverse your course, advance towards Him then there will be hope of
peace.” – Anandamayee Ma

“When the mind centers on what gives peace and one’s gaze dwells on what promotes it, when One’s ears listen to what fills the heart with peace and at all times there is a response from Him Who is peace itself, then only can there be promise of peace.”Anandamayee Ma

Until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace. ― Albert Schweitzer

Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding. ― Albert Einstein

Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.”
― Arundhati Roy

“Peace… comes within the souls of men when they realize their relationship, their oneness, with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize that at the center of the Universe dwells Wakan-Tanka, and that this center is really everywhere, it is within
each of us.” –Black Elk (Hehaka Sapa) OGLALA SIOUX

World peace must develop from inner peace. Peace is not just mere absence of violence. Peace is, I think, the manifestation of human compassion. ― Dalai Lama

“A great many people are trying to make their peace with God, but that has already been done. God has not left it for us to do; all we have to do is enter into it, to accept it.” Dwight L. Moody

You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us. And the world will live as one.
― John Lennon

Peace will not come out of a clash of arms but out of justice lived and done by unarmed nations in the face of odds. Mahatma Gandhi

“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.” Mother Teresa

“Works of love are always works of peace. Whenever you share love with others, you’ll notice the peace that comes to you and to them. When there is peace, there is God—that is how God touches our lives and shows His love for us by pouring peace and joy into our hearts.” Mother Teresa

“If we are to know peace we must look within ourselves. In order to do this, we
must learn to be still. We must quiet the mind. We must learn to meditate. Meditation helps us locate and find the center that is within ourselves. The center is where the Great One resides. When we start to look for peace, we need to realize where it is within ourselves. When we experience conflict we need to pause for a moment and ask the Power within ourselves, “How do you want me to handle this? What would you suggest I do in this situation?” By asking the High Power for help we find peace. Creator, help me to find peace. Elder’s Meditation of the Day – December 11 Source: Mother Teresa in A simple path By Mother Teresa of Calcutta

“A few really dedicated people can offset the ill effects of masses of out-of-harmony people, so we who work for peace must not falter. We must continue to pray for peace and to act for peace in whatever way we can. We must continue to speak for peace and to live the way of peace; to inspire others, we must continue to think of peace and to know it is possible. What we dwell upon we help to bring into manifestation. One little person, giving all of her time to peace, makes news. Many people, giving some of their time, can make history.” Peace Pilgrim, `Steps Toward Inner Peace

“Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained through understanding.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

If we are not happy, if we are not peaceful, we cannot share peace and happiness with others, even those we love, those who live under the same roof. If we are peaceful, if we are happy, we can smile and blossom like a
flower, and everyone in our family, our entire society, will benefit
from our peace. Thich Nhat Hanh, Being Peace
