on Peace

Bishop Of Dili Carlos Filipe Ximenes

*** Some scientists believe there
is something in the human person deeper than ethics and reason. We have the capacity to be moved by the suffering of others. This inherent power serves as the foundation for respect for others and the relief of their suffering. Humans are compassionate beings. ***

Anne Frank (1929-1945) *** It's really a wonder that I haven't dropped all my ideals because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet, I keep them, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart. I simply can't build up my hopes on a foundation consisting of confusion, misery, and death. I see the world gradually being turned into a wilderness, I hear the ever-approaching thunder, which will destroy us too, I can feel the sufferings of millions and yet, if I look up into the heavens, I think that it will all come right, that this cruelty too will end, and that peace and tranquillity will return again. ***

King Solomon of Israel (970-928 BC) *** Your own soul is nourished when you are kind; it is destroyed when you are cruel. ***

Buddha (566-486 BC) *** Hatred does not cease by hatred, but only by love; this is the eternal rule. Friendship is the only cure for hatred, the only guarantee of peace. ***

Socrates (469–399 B.C.E) *** The unexamined life is not worth living. Know your Self. ***

Nelson Mandala South African Statesman & 1993 Nobel Prize for Peace *** As I have said, the first thing is to be honest with yourself. You can never have an impact on society if you have not changed yourself... Great peacemakers are all people of integrity, of honesty, but humility. If you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy. Then he becomes your partner. ***
