Quotable Sunday – Second Week of Advent: Peace

This is the second week of Advent which is “Peace” – so for this week’s Quotable Sunday  I’ve found some great quotes on ‘Peace’…enjoy!

“There is no way to peace, peace is the way.”
A. J. Muste

“When you find peace within yourself, you become the kind of person who can live at peace with others.”
Peace Pilgrim

“Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal.”
Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Peace is not something you wish for; It’s something you make, Something you do, Something you are, And something you give away.”
Robert Fulghum

“Each one has to find his peace from within. And peace to be real must be unaffected by outside circumstances.”
Mahatma Gandhi

“Peace is not the absence of conflict, but the ability to cope with it.”

“When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.”
Jimi Hendrix

“I do not want the peace which passeth understanding, I want the understanding which bringeth peace.”
Helen Keller

“A smile is the beginning of peace.”
Mother Teresa

About Stacy (the Random Cool Chick)

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance and I chose to become a SAHM and WAHM - I love every minute of it. We added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension to our family. We have an eclectic mix of pets: dogs, cats, birds and fish. I love to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, I take on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. My favorite, of course, is making my own wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway. I blog about the joys of parenting, family, friends, life, love and anything else that strikes my fancy. I do enjoy doing reviews and giveaways for products I use, believe in and can stand behind.

  1. Loved this post and the quotes. I especially loved the Ghandi quote. So very true.

    Thanks for sharing….

  2. Peace, wouldn't it be wonderful if the world was at peace….
    I love them all, but I am going with the simplicity of Mother Teresa.
    "A smile is the beginning of peace."
    Mother Teresa

  3. Wow. Surprisingly, I was touched by each of these. I often find quotes corny or preachy or just off putting. No shocker that you found and shared some winners. I connected mostly with that of Robert Fulghum. Did he write the book about learning everything important in kinder. I realized this week as I was feeling bitter. Instead of waiting for better mood and circumstances, I need to create them. So then I began reading your blog. Voi-la! Much happier

  4. I'm singing right along with SMB,

    Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me….

    Loved especially the quote about coping.

  5. I totally thought I was on the wrong blog today… LOVE the new layout!! Looks so nice! Happy Sunday!!

  6. I have been using those quotes the last few weeks on my FB page. Not enough love or peace in the world!

    xo, Mango

    p.s. the candles are soothing.

  7. As the past comment said, the canles are soothing!
    This quote by MLK;
    “Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal.”
    Happy QS Stacy.

  8. Peace for a whole week is a goal of mine. I think it will happen this week 🙂

    When I saw this:

    “Peace is not the absence of conflict, but the ability to cope with it.”

    I read this:
    “Peace is not the absence of children, but the ability to cope with it.”


  10. peace on earth…i really love that MLK quote…perhaps we should all give it a try…
