"Love enables us to see things that cannot be seen without love. The eyes of compassion are also the eyes of understanding. To practice looking deeply is the basic medicine for anger, hatred, and fear... Understanding and Love are not two separate things, but only one. To develop understanding, you have to practice looking at all living beings with the eyes of compassion. When you understand, you cannot help but love. And when you love, you naturally act in a way that can relieve the suffering of people."

When you hold a child in your arms, or hug your mother, or your husband, or your friend, if you breathe in and out three times, your happiness will be multiplied at least tenfold.

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.

"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-'
