You certainly have found a wealth of beautiful and uplifting quotes. It's good to be reminded that there is another way, without the need for guns.

Very nice. Gandhi certainly had a lot to say about that. An individual's drive to support oneself and one's community should be primary. Hope you are doing well.

Everyday I see those monks in Myanmar marching down the street I am deeply inspired and ashamed at my self for lack of activism.

But when I feel like that, I remind myself of this quote from Camus:

The struggle itself towards the heights is enough to fill a man’s heart. One must imagine Sisyphus happy.

Emerging From The Fire said...

Great quote. And so true. Sometimes it seems so hard to find peace with another person, but the alternative is more painful.
