~ Dalai Lama

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.

Peace can only last where human rights are respected, where the people are fed, and where individuals and nations are free.
~ Dalai Lama

When these experiences come…believe in them. They reflect your true nature.
~ Ravi Shankar

Peace is not the absence of war; it is a virtue; a state of mind; a disposition for benevolence; confidence; and justice.
~ Baruch Spinoza

Contentment is a state of grace, a state of peace and happiness, appreciation and enjoyment for what is, right now. Desires, in contrast, can never be satisfied. Once we get what we crave, we soon find it less satisfying than we expected, so we strive for something else. The only escape from this perpetual wheel of want is to discover the contentment and perfection we already have.
~ Gillian Stokes

As long as there are slaughterhouses there will be battlefields. A vegetarian diet is the acid test of humanitarianism.
~ Leo Tolstoy

Man is the only animal that deals in that atrocity of atrocities, war. He is the only one that gathers his brethren about him and goes forth in cold blood and calm pulse to exterminate his kind. He is the only animal that for sordid wages will march out…and help to slaughter strangers of his own species who have done him no harm and with whom he has no quarrel…And in the intervals between campaigns he washes the blood off his hands and works for the universal brotherhood of man—with his mouth.
