Quotes of the Day for 24 November 2000 – Peace

With those amazing Thanksgiving Day dinners happily digesting (Rock Cornish Hen, Tarragon Brussels Sprouts, and garlic shrimp in my case!), "Gentle Virtues Week" nears its end and we have to gird ourselves for the onslaught of the Christmas shopping season. But first, some thoughts on Peace.

The quotes:

A nation without dregs and malcontents is orderly, peaceful and pleasant, but perhaps without the seed of things to come.
     - Eric Hoffer

Peace is not something you wish for; it's something you make, something you do, something you are, something you give away.
     - Robert Fulghum

He is happiest, be he king or peasant, who finds peace in his home.
     - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

If we have not peace within ourselves, it is in vain to seek it from outward sources.
     - Duc de La Rochefoucauld

There is no way to peace. Peace is the way.
     - A. J. Muste
