for peace of mind
|The essence of peace is found in the bible accepted by at least 3 religions:|
"Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it." -Psalms 34:14
|"Do not condemn the judgment of another because it differs from your own.|
You may both be wrong." - Dandemis
It is easy enough to be friendly to one's friends. But to befriend the one|
who regards himself as your enemy is the quintessence of true religion.
The other is mere business. -Mohandas K. Gandhi (1869-1948)

|The essence of peace is to merge two opposites.
Therefore your notions should not scare you if you see another, who absolutely opposes you, and you presume that there is no chance for peace between you two. On the same token when you see two individuals who are exactly two opposites, never say it would be impossible for them to reconcile.
On the contrary, and this is the perfection of peace to make it between two opposites.|
Rabbi Nachman of Breslav
Theodor Herzl ended his booklet "The Jewish State"
at Chapter 6, C o n c l u s i o n:
"Let me repeat once more my opening words: The Jews who wish for a State will have it. We shall live at last as free men on our own soil, and die peacefully in our own homes.
The world will be freed by our liberty, enriched by our wealth, magnified by our greatness.
And whatever we attempt there to accomplish for our own welfare, will react powerfully and beneficially for the good of humanity."
We need to build bridges between communities,
not divide them
All we are saying, give peace a chance!
"A merely fallen enemy may rise again,
but the reconciled one is truly vanquished."
-Johann Christoph Schiller, German Writer (1759-1805)
"Am I not destroying my enemies
when I make friends of them?"
-Abraham Lincoln, 16th US president (1809-1865)
