“It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start.”
– Mother Teresa
“The day the power of love overrules the love of power, the world will know peace.”
– Mahatma Gandhi
“Bless people when they revile you. Think how much good they are doing by helping to stamp out the false ego.”
– Swami Vivekananda
“Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers,
but to be fearless in facing them.
Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain, but
for the heart to conquer it.”
– Rabindranath Tagore
After travelling the whole world , after reading many books and articles , you may realize that the wisdom that your mother shared with you is still the best one.
The composition above is a collection of quotes my mom uses . They are her most favorite peace quotes.
The last one is a song by Tagore that she used to sing to us . To a 8 year old me it was a lullaby , a lullaby made of powerful words that stayed with me , and I remember it pretty often , specially when I seek peace in my stressful work life.
