“Peace is always beautiful.”
Walt Whitman

Walt Whitman (May 31, 1819 – March 26, 1892) was an American poet, essayist, and journalist. As a humanist, he was a part of the transition between transcendentalism and realism, incorporating both views in his works. Whitman is among the most influential poets in the American canon, often called the father of free verse. His work was controversial in its time, particularly his poetry collection Leaves of Grass, which was described as obscene for its overt sensuality.

“Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.”
Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein (14 March 1879 – 18 April 1955) was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics (alongside quantum mechanics). He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics “for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect”, a pivotal step in the development of quantum theory.

“It is not enough to win a war; it is more important to organize the peace.”
Aristotle

Aristotle (384–322 BC) was a Greek philosopher and polymath during the Classical period in Ancient Greece. Taught by Plato, he was the founder of the Lyceum, the Peripatetic school of philosophy, and the Aristotelian tradition. His writings cover many subjects including physics, biology, zoology, metaphysics, logic, ethics, aesthetics, poetry, theatre, music, rhetoric, psychology, linguistics, economics, politics, and government. Aristotle provided a complex synthesis of the various philosophies existing prior to him. It was above all from his teachings that the West inherited its intellectual lexicon, as well as problems and methods of inquiry. As a result, his philosophy has exerted a unique influence on almost every form of knowledge in the West and it continues to be a subject of contemporary philosophical discussion.

“Better beans and bacon in peace than cakes and ale in fear.”
Aesop

Aesop (620–564 BCE) was a Greek fabulist and storyteller credited with a number of fables now collectively known as Aesop’s Fables. Although his existence remains unclear and no writings by him survive, numerous tales credited to him were gathered across the centuries and in many languages in a storytelling tradition that continues to this day. Many of the tales are characterized by animals and inanimate objects that speak, solve problems and generally have human characteristics.

Ten additional quotes about peace

“The day the power of love overrules the love of power, the world will know peace.”
Mahatma Gandhi

“An eye for an eye will only make the whole world blind.”
Mahatma Gandhi

“There is no ‘way to peace,’ there is only ‘peace.”
Mahatma Gandhi

“World peace must develop from inner peace. Peace is not just mere absence of violence. Peace is, I think, the manifestation of human compassion.”
Dalai Lama

“Peace does not mean an absence of conflicts; differences will always be there. Peace means solving these differences through peaceful means; through dialogue, education, knowledge; and through humane ways.”
Dalai Lama

“Better than a thousand hollow words is one word that brings peace.”
Buddha

“If there is righteousness in the heart, there will be beauty in the character.
If there is beauty in the character, there will be harmony in the home.
If there is harmony in the home, there will be order in the nations.
When there is an order in the nations, there will peace in the world.”
Confucius

“Fights between individuals, as well as governments and nations, invariably result from misunderstandings in the broadest interpretation of this term. Misunderstandings are always caused by the inability of appreciating one another’s point of view. This again is due to the ignorance of those concerned, not so much in their own, as in their mutual fields. The peril of a clash is aggravated by a more or less predominant sense of combativeness, posed by every human being. To resist this inherent fighting tendency the best way is to dispel ignorance of the doings of others by a systematic spread of general knowledge. With this object in view, it is most important to aid the exchange of thought and intercourse.”
Nikola Tesla

“Peace is not something you wish for,
it is something you make, something you are, something you do,
and something you give away. ”
Robert Fulghum

“Peace demands the most heroic labor and the most difficult sacrifice. It demands greater heroism than war. It demands greater fidelity to the truth and a much more perfect purity of conscience.”
Thomas Merton

    What a beautiful selection of quotes on peace, which is particularly applicable and important at the start of the new year. After the turmulent year that the world has seen, world peace is very important.  

    I find all of them very inspirational, but the one that stands out the most to me, is the one by Mahatma Ghandi “the day the power of love overrules the love of power, the world will know peace”

    Peace!!! Why is it so hard to understand that each of us has our own views about everything. If we but respect the rights of others to have their opinion then peace has an opportunity to grow and flourish. Violence is not a solution to a different point of view but a reaction most times from fear, anger and hatred. Living a life of peace is not difficult to do if you have inner peace. That peace comes with accepting differences among people. Set aside whatever brings conflict into your mind or life and look at the world as a beautiful, wonderful inspiring place to be.

    Your quotes  and history of those from whom you borrowed quotes from is phenomenal. Each of those people have virtues that we can live by. If we but listen to the quotes and the underlying message of the quotes then we will know peace on a personal level. It will bring us closer to a lasting peace for us and for those close to us.

    Hi Nina,

    You could not have a more timely topic in this post. If the folks in the capital could hear these words. The thing that gets me about all the struggles is the reasoning behind most of them. I sometimes wonder if all the protestors are even on the same page. 

    I do believe in fighting for what you believe in but there are peaceful ways to do that. It is just easier to use force or aggravation and that always escalates. Usually, when this happens the end result is not what you were fighting for. 

    i am a very passive person and a cool head has won more battles or at least had resulted in a better outcome in the end.

    I have enjoyed reading your article and wish you well on spreading joy and peace!

    More smiles to you!

    Chad

    It is nice, that you remembered World Peace Day and that you dedicated this post to it. I like all the quotes, proving that great minds have always been committed to peace. Small minds, however, have unfortunately caused many wars throughout history.

      Thanks, I agree with what you wrote. Unfortunately, wars are a constant part of our history.
      I wish you a wonderful week,
      Nina
