Peace and its many aspects

(Still) More Peace Quotes

Always worth thinking about:

“Peace is not an absence of war, it is a virtue, a state of mind, a disposition for benevolence, confidence, justice.”

Benedict Spinoza

—–

“Once you hear the details of victory, it is hard to distinguish it from a defeat.”

Jean-Paul Sartre

—–

“How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings that publisheth peace.”

Old Testament — Isaiah

—–

“If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.”

New Testament – Romans

—–

“Keep thyself first in peace, and then thou wilt be able to bring others to peace.”

Thomas a Kempis

—–

“Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding”
