Quotes to Peace..

Quote for peace

 

“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.

  2. Inspirational and beautiful.

    I never cease to be amazed at the treasure chest of thoughts and quotes that exist in the world. What is it that needs to be done to get these internalised and support society to gain richness and wisdom?

  3. Lovely image, that’s a lovely thing to say, so true. :-). All the quotes are so inspiring and beautiful. People have forgot to smile. When we go in lift , some even don’t look up, lest a smile may escape from their face. Strange.

    1. Yes, people are becoming more mechanical ; they have time to skype / FB friendship , but no time to pass a smile to known people , neighbors! There are many things I like about USA – one thing is , here , everyone greets each other with a smile and a hi or hello. I get a “hello” even from strangers , in the forest I meet while hiking . I love that gesture . 🙂 Thank you , Indira , for your comment and the readership. Love and hugs to you.:)

        1. I am sure , there are other people who will smile back , Indira. This world is pretty big. 🙂 Do not even bother to look at these people who gave you strange looks ! Huh!.. morons they are! And you are wonderful , when you smile , the world shines! *Hugs*
