WORLD PEACE DAY
21 September is the WORLD PEACE DAY. To inaugurate the day, the Peace Bell is rung at the United Nations Headquarters (in New York City), and at this occasion I’d like to share with you some quotations, and some pictures we received this time from master Paolo ThanhMoc.
-An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind. (Mahatma Gandhi)
-Right is more precious than peace. (Woodrow Wilson)
-The Power of Love will replace the Love of Power. (William E. Gladstone)
-The more we sweat in peace the less we bleed in war. (Vijaya Lakshmi Pandit)
-Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. (Martin L. King Jr)
-Peace begins with a smile (Mother Teresa)
-Peace cannot be kept by force , it can only be achieved by understanding. (Albert Einstein)
-The real differences around the world today are, …… , between those who open their arms and those who are determined to clench their fists. (William J. Clinton, 1997)
And here is the last quote I’d like to add to this list from an author I forget the name : Sometimes we have to pick the gun up to put the Gun down.
(would you help find the author’s name?)
Best wishes for Equinox time.
