International Day of Peace 2016
Each year on September 21st, the International Day of Peace is observed around the world. It is declared as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples. To help mark the day, here are some of our favorite famous peace quotes.
“Peace is a daily, a weekly, a monthly process, gradually changing opinions, slowly eroding old barriers, quietly building new structures.”
– John F. Kennedy
“Peace begins with a smile.”
– Mother Teresa
“Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.”
– Albert Einstein
“Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.”
“Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal.”
– Martin Luther King, Jr.
