It has been tradition here at Trav's Thoughts to count down the days leading up to Blog Blast for Peace with 30 days of peace quotes. I didn't do that this year.
But you know what? I can still share peace quotes with you. I've told you stories this past week about my family and how their hands of love built the foundation of my personal Peace. So the quotes I've chosen to share with you are in that theme.
"You cannot find peace by avoiding life."
"Peace and trust take years to build and seconds to shatter."
“When we feel love and kindness toward others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also to develop inner happiness and peace.”
Dalai Lama XIV
“There are more quarrels smothered by just shutting your mouth, and holding it shut, than by all the wisdom in the world.”
Henry Ward Beecher
"Your inner strength is your outer foundation."
“Words never fade away but echo on for eternity. Let your echo ring sweet.”
Richelle E Goodrich
"A vocabulary of truth and simplicity will be of service throughout your life."
"Words are...the most inexhaustible source of magic; capable of inflicting injury and remedying it."
Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Diversity need not be divisive.
