Quotes of Peace

For I dipped into the future, far as human eye could see,
Saw the vision of the world, and all the wonders that would be ...
Till the war-drum throbbed no longer and the battle-flags were furled
In the Parliament of man, the Federation of the world.
                                 --From "Locksley Hall" by Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Where there is light in the child, there will be beauty in the soul.
When there is beauty in the soul, there will be harmony in the home.
When there is harmony in the home, there will be order in the nation.
When there is order in the nation, there will be peace in the world.

Every Being has the Buddha Nature.  This is the self.

Dance as though no one is watching you,
Live as though heaven is on earth.
                                                     --Anonymous poem

If there is to be peace in the world,
There must be peace in the home.
If there is to be peace in the home,
There must be peace in the heart.
                                                    --Lao Tzu, Chinese Sage

Hatreds never cease through hatred in this world;
through love alone they cease. This is the eternal Law.
                                                    --The Dhammapada
