Peace Quotes:  B   

Melody Beattie

Melody Beattie  1948
Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.


Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God.

If possible, so far as it lies with you, live at Peace with all men.

Black Elk

Black Elk  1863 - 1950
Know the power that is Peace.

Peace will come to the hearts of men when they realize their oneness with the universe, it is everywhere.

The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the Souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that its center is really everywhere, it is within each of us.

This is the real peace, and the others are but reflections of this. The second peace is that which is made between two individuals, and the third is that which is made between two nations. But above all you should understand that there can never be peace between nations until there is known that true peace, which, as I have often said, is within the Souls of men.

Peace Quotes:  C   

Eileen Caddy

Eileen Caddy  1917 - 2006
Be at peace and see a clear pattern and plan running through your lives. Nothing is by chance.

I AM your anchor.  I AM your haven.  Let My Peace and Love infill and enfold you.

I am your anchor, I am your haven, let my peace and love infil and enfold you - Eileen Caddy - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

Eileen Caddy

Eileen Caddy  1917 - 2006
Let my Peace which passes all understanding infill and enfold you, for when you are at Peace within, you reflect Peace without, and all those Souls you meet will feel that Peace.

Seek and find the freedom of the spirit, for where there is true freedom, there is peace, and where there is peace, there is love, and it is love that unlocks all doors.

Start each day in my peace and stillness, then you can go forth and face whatever the day may bring in perfect peace and joy.

When a cupboard is full to overflowing and the doors are opened up, that which is within comes tumbling out and nothing can stop it. When floodgates are opened, the water rushes forth with tremendous power and force, carrying all before it. So with the spiritual power within you; once it has been recognised and released, nothing can stop the flow. It pours forth, sweeping aside all negativity and disharmony, bringing with it peace, love, harmony and understanding. It is love that will overcome the world; it is love which will unite humanity. Therefore the sooner you release that tremendous power of love within you and allow it to flow freely, the sooner will you behold world peace and harmony and the oneness of all humanity. When you have love in your heart, you draw the very best out of everyone, for love sees only the best and therefore draws forth the best. Be not afraid; open up, hold nothing back, and let it all flow freely.

George Carey

George Carey  1935

You get World Peace through Inner Peace.  If you've got a world full of people who have Inner Peace, then you have a Peaceful World.

It is impossible to bless and judge at the same time.  So hold constantly as a deep, hallowed, intoned thought, that desire to bless.  For truly then shall you become a peacemaker.  And one day you shall, everywhere, behold the very face of God.

On passing people in the street, on the bus, in places of work and play...bless them.  The peace of your blessing will accompany them on their way and the aura of its gentle fragrance will be a light to their path.
