Peace

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on bliss, body, happiness, and peace

When we feel happy and peaceful, our happiness and peace radiates around us, and others can enjoy it as well. This is called 'the enjoyment of others of our body of bliss'.

Buddha (563 - 483 BC)

A victor only breeds hatred, while a defeated man lives in misery, but a man at peace within lives happily, abandoning up ideas of victory and defeat.

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on action, desires, destruction, evil, faith, good, mind, needs, opportunity, peace, and speech

Freed by full realization and at peace, the mind of such a man is at peace, and his speech and action peaceful. He has no need for faith who knows the uncreated, who has cut off rebirth, who has destroyed any opportunity for good or evil, and cast away all desire. He is indeed the ultimate man.

A Quote by Bodhidharma on bliss, body, existence, peace, suffering, understanding, and path

To have a body is to suffer. Does anyone with a body know peace? Those who understand this detach themselves from all that exists and stop imagining or seeking anything. The sutras say, "To seek is to suffer. To seek nothing is bliss." When you seek nothing, you're on the Path.

A Quote by Blaise Pascal on beginning, belief, christ, divinity, god, grace, mind, and peace

If we let ourselves believe that man began with divine grace, that he forfeited this by sin, and that he can be redeemed only by divine grace through the crucified Christ then we shall find a peace of mind never granted to philosophers. He who cannot believe is cursed, for he reveals by his unbelief that God has not chosen to give him grace.

A Quote by Billy Graham on bitterness, circumstances, contentment, dependence, environment, failure, happiness, kindness, life, needs, peace, problems, relaxation, soul, success, tears, and worth

The happiness which brings enduring worth to life is not the superficial happiness that is dependent on circumstances. It is the happiness and contentment that fills the soul even in the midst of the most distressing of circumstances and most bitter environment. It is the kind of happiness that grins when things go wrong and smiles through the tears. The happiness for which our souls ache is one undisturbed by success or failure, one which will root deeply inside us and give inward relaxation, peace, and contentment, no matter what the surface problems may be. That kind of happiness stands in need on no outward stimulus.

A Quote by Bill Clinton on enemies, hatred, peace, people, and risk

He was a martyr of peace but was the victim of hate. If people can't let go of the hatred of their enemies they risk sowing the seeds of hate among themselves.

A Quote by Bhagavad-Gita on control, dedication, desires, fear, goals, god, heart, joy, meditation, mind, peace, and senses

Make your mind one-pointed in meditation, and your heart will be purified. . . . With all fears dissolved in the peace of the Self and all desires dedicated to Brahman, controlling the mind and fixing it on me (God), sit in meditation with me as your only goal. With senses and mind constantly controlled through meditation, united with the Self within, an aspirant attains nirvana, the state of abiding joy and peace in me.

A Quote by Bhagavad-Gita on action, knowledge, meditation, peace, practice, religion, and attachment

Better indeed is knowledge than mechanical practice (of religious ritual). Better than knowledge is meditation. But better still is surrender of attachment to results (of one's actions), because there follows immediate peace.
