Timeless Wisdom

The peace the world pretends to desire is really no peace at all.. . .. instead of loving what you think is peace, love other men and love God above all. And instead of hating the people you think are warmakers, hate the appetites and the disorder in your own soul, which are the causes of war. If you love peace, then hate injustice, hate tyranny, hate greed but hate these things in yourself, not in another. (New Seeds of Contemplation: p. 122.)
