We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.
— His Holiness, the Dalai Lama
Mankind must remember that peace is not God’s gift to his creatures, peace is our gift to each other.
— Elie Wiesel
If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.
— St. Mother Teresa
