And thank you, Luna, for these ones, I just posted something similar in the Quotes section. 

In order to have peace, and to wish peace for the World, we need to know what peace is, we have to have gone within and found peace within ourselves and then project it to the outside world knowing what true peace really is which is all that he mentions here. 

Comment by Luna Arjuna on Sunday

"Peace is not simply the absence of violence; it is the cultivation of understanding, insight, and compassion, combined with action. Peace is the practice of mindfulness, the practice of being aware of our thoughts, our actions, and the consequences of our actions. Mindfulness is at once simple and profound. When we are mindful and cultivate compassion in our daily lives, we diminish violence each day. We have a positive effect on our family, friends, and society."

~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Image may contain: 1 person, possible text that says '"When another person makes you suffer, it is because he suffers deeply within himself, and his suffering is spilling over. He does not need punishment; he needs help. That's the message he is sending.' -Thich Nhat Hanh-'

We have a tendency to think in terms of doing and not in terms of being. We think that when we’re not doing anything, we’re wasting our time. But that’s not true. Our time is first of all for us to be. To be what? To be alive, to be peaceful, to be joyful, to be loving. And this is what the world needs the most. We all need to train ourselves in our way of being, and that is the ground for all action. Our quality of being determines our quality of doing.

- Thich Nhat Hanh, in “The Art of Living”.

“People suffer because they are caught in their views. As soon as we release those views, we are free and we don't suffer anymore.”

― Thich Nhat Hanh
