You will find that deep place of silence right in your room, your garden or even your bathtub. ~Elisabeth Kubler-Ross Peace is already here, it is within you, in front of you, you only need to be in touch with it. You do not need to chase it. The act of chasing is only wasting your energy and confusing you, and taking you away from peace. ~Thich Nhat Hanh You are Happiness, you are Peace, you are Freedom.

And peace to be real must be unaffected by outside circumstances. ~Mahatma Gandhi Smiling is very important. If we are not able to smile, then the world will not have peace. It is not by going out for a demonstration against nuclear missiles that we can bring about peace. It is with our capacity of smiling, breathing, and being peace that we can make peace. ~Thich Nhat Hanh People say “I want peace.” If you remove I {ego}, and your want {desire}, you are left with peace. ~Satya Sai Baba Peace is a well from which the streams of joy runs. ~Gaelic proverb Peace is not something you must hope for in the future.
