Quotes About Peace
"Your natural inclinations for spirituality, for social cooperation and productivity, for political stability and for justice and equanimity will prepare you for the future and enable you to do whatever needs to be done in order to survive, to advance and to bring a greater order, peace and justice into the world. It will not be a perfect order, but it must be a greater order. It will not be a perfect peace, but it must be a greater peace. It will not be a perfect justice, but it must be a greater justice."

"Peace is on the minds of many people, but peace is not possible without necessity. Peace as a goal or peace as an ambition or peace as a wish does not have the power to overcome the tensions and animosities that exist between people and even within people, within individuals. The peace that can be forged in the future must be based upon necessity. It must be based upon a clear understanding that humanity is entering a period of grave difficulty, facing a world in decline, a world of declining resources where many more people will be drawing from the bounty that the world can provide, a world where humanity will be facing competition from other races from beyond the world, a set of circumstances when taken together is greater and more profound and far reaching than anything that humanity as a whole has ever had to face before."
