It's really a wonder that I haven't dropped all my ideals because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet, I keep them, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart. I simply can't build up my hopes on a foundation consisting of confusion, misery, and death. I see the world gradually being turned into a wilderness, I hear the ever-approaching thunder, which will destroy us too, I can feel the sufferings of millions and yet, if I look up into the heavens, I think that it will all come right, that this cruelty too will end, and that peace and tranquility will return again.
Anne Frank quotes
Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming.
John Wooden quotes
If we are incapable of finding peace in ourselves, it is pointless to search elsewhere.
François de la Rochefoucauld quotes
People in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than governments.
Dwight David Eisenhower quotes
What we need is Star Peace and not Star Wars.
Mikhail Gorbachev quotes
Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost (Romans 15:13).
The Bible quotes
By recognizing a favorable opinion of yourself, and taking pleasure in it, you in a measure give yourself and your peace of mind into the keeping of another, of whose attitude you can never be certain. You have a new source of doubt and apprehension.
Charles Horton Cooley quotes
We seek to find peace of mind in the word, the formula, the ritual. The hope is illusion.
Benjamin Cardozo quotes
A desire arises in the mind. It is satisfied immediately when another comes. In the interval which separates two desires a perfect calm reigns in the mind. It is at this moment freed from all thought, love or hate. Complete peace equally reigns between two mental waves.
Swami Sivananda quotes
In seasons of tumult and discord bad men have the most power; mental and moral excellence require peace and quietness.
Publius Cornelius Tacitus quotes
