Quotable Sunday - Second Week of Advent: Peace



This is the second week of Advent which is "Peace" - so for this week's Quotable Sunday  I've found some great quotes on 'Peace'...enjoy!


“There is no way to peace, peace is the way.”
A. J. Muste

“When you find peace within yourself, you become the kind of person who can live at peace with others.”
Peace Pilgrim

“Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal.”
Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Peace is not something you wish for; It's something you make, Something you do, Something you are, And something you give away.”
Robert Fulghum

“Each one has to find his peace from within. And peace to be real must be unaffected by outside circumstances.”
Mahatma Gandhi

“Peace is not the absence of conflict, but the ability to cope with it.”
Unknown

“When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.”
Jimi Hendrix

“I do not want the peace which passeth understanding, I want the understanding which bringeth peace.”
Helen Keller

"A smile is the beginning of peace."
Mother Teresa

I love all your quotes. May you have a peaceful day today! :)

magda said...

Wow. Surprisingly, I was touched by each of these. I often find quotes corny or preachy or just off putting. No shocker that you found and shared some winners. I connected mostly with that of Robert Fulghum. Did he write the book about learning everything important in kinder. I realized this week as I was feeling bitter. Instead of waiting for better mood and circumstances, I need to create them. So then I began reading your blog. Voi-la! Much happier

When I saw this:
