Description

Thought-provoking, calming, and enlightening - profound words of wisdom from politicians, spiritual leaders, and artists the world over exploring the concept of peace. Mercy and truth are met together: righteousness and peace have kissed each other. -Old Testament, Psalm lxxxv 10 The name of peace is sweet, and the thing itself is beneficial, but there is a great difference between peace and servitude. Peace is freedom in tranquility, servitude is the worst of all evils, to be resisted not only by war, but even by death. -Tullius Cicero In separateness lies the world's great misery; in compassion lies the world's true strength. -Buddha The only alternative to coexistence is codestruction. -Jawaharlal Nehru I do not want the peace which passeth understanding. I want the understanding which bringeth peace. -Helen Keller The quest for peace - political and personal - has been part of human existence since the beginning of time. The best of what has been said and written about this elusive state of being is gathered here in hundreds of quotations by dozens of authors, including: Mahatma Gandhi, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Anne Frank, Vaclav Havel, Buddha, Joan Baez, Malcolm X, Herman Hess., Fran Lebowitz, Jawaharlal Nehru, Abraham Lincoln, Eleanor Roosevelt, Jimmy Carter, Hannah Arendt, Martin Luther King. Jr. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to charity.show more
