Peaceful Perspectives


Do you prefer original ideas from a famous author?
"Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained through understanding." - Ralph Waldo Emerson


The practical sound of science? 
"Peace cannot be kept by force. 
It can only be achieved by understanding." - Albert Einstein


Or...
 Do you find hope and strength in faith? 

"If we have no peace, 
it is because we have forgotten
 that we belong to each other." - Mother Teresa

  1. They are all wrong. This isn't original, but there will be no peace on Earth until the Lord Jesus comes again. This will no doubt bring all sorts of arguments against what is written.

  2. The world is very messed up right now. Even if you tried Peace I think many would just answer it with violence. Israel has for years tried for Peace with Palestine, Hamas any number of hate groups and it has never worked. Gangs here in the US just would shoot as soon as look at you.
    This is very sad.

  3. There are so many good people in the world. People of spirituality, rather than advocating a narrow world view. Love Mother Teresa and her constant sacrifices.
    Thank you so much for your help, Eve. I'm carer to my disabled husband, reason for no longer blogging, but managed to find the time to begin again and slowly building my website, blog once more x

  4. I wonder if we've passed the point of no return, if there's no way to peace in this world right now.

    I have to agree with Mari. I've been studying Revelation more than usual lately.

  5. Mother Teresa's words are closest to what I believe. We have access to peace in our hearts by the grace of God. If we don't have peace within, we sure aren't going to be spreading it around to others.

  6. Hey Eve,

    I much prefer hearing original ideas from folks who aren't necessarily famous. However, I do relate to the quotes.

    Let's make peace a worldwide, positive epidemic.

  7. They're all fundamentally sound choices, but the factions of the world could use a lot more understanding of each other and less shouting to drown out other voices.

    You were so close to me in San Bernardino! I'd liked to have come but already had a commitment for a family birthday dinner. Hope your event went well.

  8. I think I feel the most peaceful when I am outside in nature. :)
