Courage is more exhilarating than fear, and in the long run it is easier. We do not have to become heroes overnight. Just a step at a time, meeting each thing that comes up, seeing it is not as dreadful as it appeared, discovering we have the strength to stare it down.

Eleanor Roosevelt


Consider that just about every place on earth where Americans are sent to fight and die, the bullets and missiles being slung at them were made in their very own country.... Shouldn't this be a scandal? Shouldn't people talk about it? Shouldn't it be stopped?

Fred Woodworth


Contemplate the workings of this world, listen to the words of the wise, and take all that is good as your own. With this as your base, open your own door to truth. do not overlook the truth that is right before you. Study how water flows in a valley stream, smoothly and freely between the rocks. Also learn from holy books and wise people. Everything -- even mountains, rivers, plants, and trees -- should be your teacher.

Morihe Ueshiba, The Art of Peace


This is what you should do: love the Earth and the Sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to everyone that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown nor to any man nor any number of men, reexamine what you've been told at school or in church or in any book, dismiss what insults your soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem.

Walt Whitman


The basic fact is that humanity survives through kindness, love and compassion. That human beings can develop these qualities is their real blessing.

Dalai Lama


Responsibility does not only lie with the leaders of our countries or with those who have been appointed or elected to do a particular job. It lies with each of us individually. Peace, for example, starts within each one of us.

Dalai Lama



Going along in company together, a wise man Must mix with other foolish persons. But on seeing what is wrongful he abandons them.

As a full-fledged heron leaves the marshy ground.



Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

Albert Einstein



A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.

 Sir Winston Churchill



I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.

 Galileo Galilei



In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.

Martin Luther King Jr.
