When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.
Jimi Hendrix

Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained through understanding.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

The most valuable possession you can own is an open heart. The most powerful weapon you can be is an instrument of peace.
Carlos Santana

I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it.
Dwight D. Eisenhower

You will find peace not by trying to escape your problems, but by confronting them courageously. You will find peace not in denial, but in victory.
J. Donald Walters

I get those fleeting, beautiful moments of inner peace and stillness - and then the other 23 hours and 45 minutes of the day, I'm a human trying to make it through in this world.
Ellen DeGeneres

There can never be peace between nations until there is first known that true peace which is within the souls of men.
Black Elk

Very meaningful quotes, Don. I confess that I wonder if there ever truly will be peace in this world. Jimi Hendrix's quote sums it up succinctly -- 'the love of power' is still stronger than 'the power of love'.

Remember "....give peace a chance..."? Humans don't seem to have peace in their make-up. If it's not the superpowers than it is umpteen smaller countries and it starts from person to person.

I'm not sure peace would work, in fact I don't know what peace looks like.
Thought provoking topic.
Thanks Don.
