"Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual
power. We have guided missiles and misguided men."
Martin Luther King, Jr.
the language, peace is the common dream.
"Personal peace results from cultivating love, compassion, wisdom and justice from which emerge balanced relationships with oneself, with
others and with the environment. Such peace is a state of mind freed from agitation, intolerance and aggression. It is the very foundation
for harmony within family, community, national and international relationships.
People of genuine peace and non-violence regard no one as an enemy, wage no wars and sanction no destructive acts against the environment. The
mere presence of a person of peace can be an inspiration to others and even affect their surroundings; great leadership in peace can inspire
whole nations. Individuals who hunger for peace form a noble alliance; together they nurture
personal peace and transmit it to others."
