Peace Quotations

Those who are free of resentful thoughts surely find peace.


Happiness, true happiness, is an inner quality. It is a state of mind. If your mind is at peace, you are happy. If your mind is at peace, but you have nothing else, you can be happy. If you have everything the world can give – pleasure, possessions, power, but lack peace of mind, you can never be happy.

Dada Vaswani

Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace.


Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.
