Give Peace A Chance

Dusman bir ise coktur.”

One thousand friends are too little,
One enemy is too many
~Turkish Proverb

One is left with the horrible feeling now that war settles nothing; that to win a war is as disastrous as to lose one.
~Agatha Christie

It is well to be united in thought, that all men have peace.”

la gracia es saber vivir.

The blessing is not in living,
but in knowing how to live.

First keep the peace within yourself, then you can also bring peace to others.

“El respeto al derecho ajeno
es la paz.”

Respect for the rights of another,
that is peace
~Mexican-American proverb

We shall find peace. We shall hear angels. We shall see the sky sparkling with diamonds.
~Anton Chekhov

vangahi darya shavad.

Drops that gather one by one
finally become a sea.”

    Hi Shelly,

    Great selection of quotes as always (thoughful and relevant, I love your writing).

    Can I add one?

    “We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.”

    HH the Dalai Lama

    Have a great WW.

    Thank you! That’s a good addition. Hope you have a peaceful day (I’m not participating in WW today)~skt

    Interesting, I added a quote with my Peace Globe titled “Peace at Home” on my Christian blog.

    “It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start.” ~ Mother Teresa

    Peace is powerful stuff!

    PS Thanks for adding some link love for me. 😀

    Powerful indeed! Thanks for the great quote. You’re welcome on the link love. Always glad to oblige.~skt
