Peace: Inspirational Quotations

“You don’t make peace with friends. You make it with very unsavory enemies.”
Yitzhak Rabin

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

“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.”
John Muir

“Peace, in the sense of the absence of war, is of little value to someone who is dying of hunger or cold. It will not remove the pain of torture inflicted on a prisoner of conscience. It does not comfort those who have lost their loved ones in floods caused by senseless deforestation in a neighbouring country. Peace can only last where human rights are respected, where people are fed, and where individuals and nations are free.”
The XIVth Dalai Lama

“Peace takes time and skill. Ultimately it is worth our time and skill because peace is deeply rewarding.”
Eleanor Roosevelt
