“Peace begins with a smile.” (Even behind a mask)

~Mother Teresa

 

“Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything – anger, anxiety, or possessions – we cannot be free.”
~ Thich Nhat Hanh

 

“Don’t search for anything except peace. Try to calm the mind. Everything else will come on its own.” ~ Baba Hari Das

 

“When I say it’s you I like, I’m talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch. That deep part of you that allows you to stand for those things without which humankind cannot survive. Love that conquers hate, peace that rises triumphant over war, and justice that proves more powerful than greed.” ~ Fred Rogers

 

“The spiritual life does not remove us from the world but leads us deeper into it.”  ~ Henri J.M. Nouwen
