A Quote by Byron Katie on war, thoughts, olympics, war driven thoughts, youth, nations, and youth of the world

"As we watch the world embrace the Olympics in the coming days,
let us remember why the modern Olympics came into being:
to bring nations closer together, to have the youth of the world
compete in sports, rather than fight in war.

As long as we believe our own war-driven thoughts, there will
always be war, in ourselves, in our families, and in our world.

As long as we believe our thoughts, there will always be war. "

Byron Katie

A Quote by John Ruskin on nations, history, and deeds

Great nations write their autobiographies in three manuscripts, the book of their deeds, the book of their words and the book of their art. Not one of these books can be understood unless we read the two others, but of the three the only trustworthy one is the last.

A Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh on community, day, family, nations, projects, time, and uncertainty

If we are too busy, if we are carried away every day by our projects, our uncertainty, our craving, how can we have the time to stop and look deeply into the situation-our own situation, the situation of our beloved one, the situation of our family and of our community, and the situation of our nation and of the other nations?

A Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. on fear, habits, humanity, injustice, nations, poverty, power, problems, violence, war, and weapons

We have ancient habits to deal with, vast structures of power, indescribably complicated problems to solve. But unless we abdicate our humanity altogether and succumb to fear and impotence in the presence of the weapons we have ourselves created, it is as possible and as urgent to put an end to war and violence between nations as it is to put an end to poverty and racial injustice.
