#1. Don't underestimate the power of humor and the ability to laugh at yourself to deliver peace and serenity. - Author: Charles F. Glassman
Peace And Serenity quotes by Charles F. Glassman
#2. Do not focus your gaze on things that are wrong, for what you see, slowly begins to penetrate you. You are addicted to fixing your eyes on the wrong; you pay attention only to what is wrong inside you. The angry man concentrates on his anger, and how to get rid of it. Though he wants to get rid of the anger, he is actually concentrating on that white line of anger within him; the more he concentrates the more he is hypnotized by it.

Don't worry! Everybody is! Don't focus your eyes on the anger, but concentrate on compassion. Concentrate on what is right. As the right gets more and more energy, the strength of the wrong gets weaker and weaker. Ultimately it will disappear. This happens because energy is one; you cannot use it in two ways. If you have utilized your energy in becoming peaceful, you would have no energy for restlessness. All your energy has moved towards peace, and if you have had a taste of peace and serenity, why bother to become restless? You can maintain your restlessness only if you have never known the flavour of serenity. You can dive into the pleasures of the world only if you have not tasted the divine. - Author: Osho
Peace And Serenity quotes by Osho

Peace And Serenity quotes by Ali Meshkini

Peace And Serenity quotes by Pope John Paul II
#5. Cross over children. All are welcome. All welcome. Go into the Light. There is peace and serenity in the Light. - Author: Zelda Rubinstein
Peace And Serenity quotes by Zelda Rubinstein
#6. The end of the Cold War removed the immediate causes of whole destruction but not the threat contained in our knowledge. We must tame this knowledge with the ideals of justice, caring, and compassion summoned from our common human spiritual and moral heritage, if we are to live in peace and serenity in the twenty-first century. - Author: Mahnaz Afkhami
Peace And Serenity quotes by Mahnaz Afkhami
#7. The rewards of integrity are immeasurable. One is the indescribable inner peace and serenity that come from knowing we are doing what is right; another is an absence of the guilt and anxiety that accompany sin. Another reward of integrity is the confidence it can give us in approaching God. When virtue garnishes our thoughts unceasingly, our confidence is strong in the presence of God. - Author: Joseph B. Wirthlin
Peace And Serenity quotes by Joseph B. Wirthlin
#8. When I decided to follow Jesus that night in Atlanta, I assumed that becoming a Christian would make life easier. I thought the rest of my life would be smiling and smooth sailing. I assumed I wouldn't be tempted by women and partying and acceptance and all the things that I'd been a slave to for so many years. I thought I would walk around with a continual inner peace and serenity like Gandhi or something. This turns out to be a lie that too many people believe. You'll actually experience more temptation, not less, after you become a Christian. Following Jesus doesn't mean you'll start living perfectly overnight. It certainly doesn't mean that your problems will disappear. Rather than ridding you of problems or temptations, following Jesus just means that you have a place - no, a person - to run to when they come. And the power to overcome them. - Author: Lecrae Moore
Peace And Serenity quotes by Lecrae Moore
#9. The aesthetic value of creation cannot be overlooked. Our very contact with nature has a deep restorative power; contemplation of its magnificence imparts peace and serenity. The Bible speaks again and again of the goodness and beauty of creation, which is called to glorify God. - Author: Pope John Paul II
Peace And Serenity quotes by Pope John Paul II
#10. How can she stand up there so tall as she's telling us how her mother beat her and her father molested her when she was a little girl? How is it possible for her to look so proud? How is she not being consumed by shame? She should be disintegrating before our eyes. She should be struck by lightning, and God's big, angry, booming voice should be shaking the room with "How dare you? I told you never to tell." But that's not her God, she says. Her God is loving and kind and wants what's best for her. Her God loves peace and serenity and forgiveness. Her God doesn't make her keep secrets. I thought I knew God all my life, but maybe it was some other guy the whole time. I want this God. I want Val's God. I want a God who doesn't make me jump through hoops and hate myself to earn his love. - Author: Amy Reed
Peace And Serenity quotes by Amy Reed
#11. But I do know focusing on the exterior doesn't make me happy. If I want peace and serenity, it won't be reached by getting thinner or fatter. - Author: Elle Macpherson
Peace And Serenity quotes by Elle Macpherson
#12. When a tire blows, you simply accept that this is the here and now reality of your life. You've lost the tire, but that doesn't mean that you have to lose your peace and serenity. Now, serenely, begin to take the necessary steps in order the change the tire. - Author: Ken Keyes Jr.
Peace And Serenity quotes by Ken Keyes Jr.
#13. Human Rights for everyone is the necessary foundation upon which all of us may build a world where everybody may live in peace and serenity and plenty. - Author: Michael Douglas
Peace And Serenity quotes by Michael Douglas
#14. But little or great, suffering accepted and offered to Our Lord produces peace and serenity. When it is not accepted, the soul is out of tune and its internal rebellion is shown externally in gloom or bad temper. We have to make a conscious decision to take up and carry the little Cross of every day with determination. Suffering can be sent to us by God to purify many things in our past life or to strengthen our virtues and to unite us to the sufferings of Christ our Redeemer, who, in his innocence, suffered the punishment due to our sins. - Author: Francis Fernandez
Peace And Serenity quotes by Francis Fernandez
#15. Whatever we think and feel will colour what we say or do. He who fears, even unconsciously, or has his least little dream tainted with hate, will inevitably, sooner or later, translate these two qualites into action. Therefore, my brothers, live courage, breathe courage and give courage. Think and feel love so that you will be able to pour out of yourselves peace and serenity as naturally as a flower gives forth fragrance. Peace be unto all!!! - Author: Dhan Gopal Mukerji
Peace And Serenity quotes by Dhan Gopal Mukerji
#16. Among the hills, when you sit in the cool shade of the white poplars, sharing the peace and serenity of distant fields and meadows - then let your heart say in silence, "God rests in reason." And when the storm comes, and the mighty wind shakes the forest, and thunder and lightning proclaim the majesty of the sky, - then let your heart say in awe, "God moves in passion. - Author: Kahlil Gibran
Peace And Serenity quotes by Kahlil Gibran
#17. For me, it is essential to have the inner peace and serenity of prayer in order to listen to the silence of God, which speaks to us, in our personal life and the history of our times, of the power of love. - Author: Adolfo Perez Esquivel
Peace And Serenity quotes by Adolfo Perez Esquivel
#18. Reconcile with yourself for the sake of the world, for the sake of all living beings. Your peace and serenity are crucial for all of us. - Author: Thich Nhat Hanh
Peace And Serenity quotes by Thich Nhat Hanh
#19. I do not mean to say that you will become happy in such a situation. You will not. But fear and pain will become transmuted into an inner peace and serenity that come from a very deep place - from the Unmanifested itself. It is "the peace of God, which passes all understanding." Compared to that, happiness is quite a shallow thing. With this radiant peace comes the realization - not on the level of mind but within the depth of your Being - that you are indestructible, immortal. This is not a belief. It is absolute certainty that needs no external evidence or proof from some secondary source. - Author: Eckhart Tolle
Peace And Serenity quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#20. When someone obtains peace and serenity, this shines a bright spotlight on others' own unhappiness making their discomfort even more apparent. - Author: David W. Earle
Peace And Serenity quotes by David W. Earle
#21. Peace will not occur magically because one or two individuals awaken to the truth of the nature of harmony and order. Peace will only prosper when the principle of harmonious order becomes common sense rather than a novel idea. - Author: Ilchi Lee
Peace And Serenity quotes by Ilchi Lee
#22. Christ said: Blessed are the peace-makers, not blessed are the peace-sayers. If the world fell into the hands of totalitarian factions, there is still the possibility that they might fight amongst themselves. Surrender to them would not encourage the kingdom of peace and love - and those that desire it, or with passionate intensity permit it, know not what they do ... - Author: Michael Novak
Peace And Serenity quotes by Michael Novak
#23. Then a sound came. It was like the grinding of gears on a colossal ship engine. The sound was like mountains of iron scraping and rubbing against each other, forced together by some godlike impulse. Uselessly, I covered my ears. It went on and on, and I felt as though I would never again know peace. My senses were consumed by the light and heat and sound, their power interrupted only by the tactile sensation of my heart pounding against my chest. It will be very difficult for you to really grasp what happened next. I warn you that my description will inevitably fall far from conveying the astonishing sight I witnessed. Nevertheless, I shall endeavor to convey some sense of what happened. - Author: Alec Merta
Peace And Serenity quotes by Alec Merta
#24. If I really want inner peace in my life, then I must not busy myself with what other people do and say. - Author: Sri Chinmoy
Peace And Serenity quotes by Sri Chinmoy
#25. Allow the President to invade a neighboring nation, whenever he shall deem it necessary to repel an invasion and you allow him to do so whenever he may choose to say he deems it necessary for such purpose
and you allow him to make war at pleasure ... If, today, he should choose to say he thinks it necessary to invade Canada to prevent the British from invading us, how could you stop him? You may say to him, 'I see no probability of the British invading us'; but he will say to you, 'Be silent; I see it, if you don't. - Author: Abraham Lincoln
Peace And Serenity quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#26. It is vain to shut our eyes to the fact that there is a vast quantity of so-called Christianity nowadays, which you cannot declare positively unsound - but which, nevertheless, is not full measure, good weight and sixteen ounces to the pound. It is a Christianity in which there is undeniably "something about Christ, and something about grace, and something about faith, and something about repentance, and something about holiness," but it is not the real "thing as it is" in the Bible. Things are out of place and out of proportion. As old Latimer would have said, it is a kind of "mingle-mangle," and does no good. It neither . . . exercises influence on daily conduct, nor comforts in life, nor gives peace in death. And those who hold it often awake too late to find that they have got nothing solid under their feet. - Author: J.C. Ryle
Peace And Serenity quotes by J.C. Ryle
#27. Whether we will be able to achieve world peace or not, we have no choice but to work toward that goal. If we allow love and compassion to be dominated by anger, we will sacrifice the best part of our human intelligence - wisdom, our ability to decide between right and wrong. Along with selfishness, anger is one of the most serious problems facing the world today. - Author: Dalai Lama XIV
Peace And Serenity quotes by Dalai Lama XIV
#28. Only in making peace - with ourselves, with others, and the world - will any of us find the life we are hoping for. - Author: Laurence Overmire
Peace And Serenity quotes by Laurence Overmire
#29. Life happens. That was much more appropriate. Unfortunately, many of us found that out earlier than some. We found out just how awful life could really be. We found out that monsters were, indeed, real. They walked among us. They looked just like you and me. They came in the form of the people that we loved and trusted the most. The people whose only job was to love and protect us. Funny thing about life is that it never turns out the way you want it to. It's never fair. It's harsh and brutal. It kicks you when you're down. It makes you wish you could give up and part with it just to have a semblance of peace. - Author: S.L. Jennings
Peace And Serenity quotes by S.L. Jennings
#30. When the mind is kept away from its preoccupations, it becomes quiet. If you do not disturb this quiet and stay in it, you find that it is permeated with a light and a love you have never known; and yet you recognise it at once as your own nature. Once you have passed through this experience, you will never be the same man again; the unruly mind may break its peace and obliterate its vision; but it is bound to return, provided the effort is sustained; until the day when all bonds are broken, delusions and attachments end and life becomes supremely concentrated in the present. - Author: Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
Peace And Serenity quotes by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
#31. I'm looking for someone who…uh, someone I can trust. Someone strong. Someone at peace with themselves. Someone better than me. Someone who knows the…worst side of me and still loves me." Patrick Jane. - Author: The Mentalist
Peace And Serenity quotes by The Mentalist
#32. The Universal Zulu Nation stands to acknowledge wisdom, understanding, freedom, justice, and equality, peace, unity, love, and having fun, work, overcoming the negative through the positive, science, mathematics, faith, facts, and the wonders of God, whether we call him Allah, Jehovah, Yahweh, or Jah. - Author: Afrika Bambaataa
Peace And Serenity quotes by Afrika Bambaataa
#33. One human's despair is all humans' despair - one human's joy is all humans' joy - one human's accomplishments are all humans' accomplishments. Such should be the genuine thinking of a civilized and conscientious human, if there is to be peace and harmony in the world. - Author: Abhijit Naskar
Peace And Serenity quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#34. And the vessel was not full, his intellect was not satisfied, his soul was not at peace, his heart was not still. - Author: Hermann Hesse
Peace And Serenity quotes by Hermann Hesse
#35. You may sound like a crazed chicken while chanting this unholy mantra! But, I promise you, the peace and confidence that this mantra will bring into your life is simply priceless. - Author: Tina Sequeira
Peace And Serenity quotes by Tina Sequeira
#36. The portraits, of more historical than artistic interest, had gone; and tapestry, full of the blue and bronze of peacocks, fell over the doors, and shut out all history and activity untouched with beauty and peace; and now when I looked at my Crevelli and pondered on the rose in the hand of the Virgin, wherein the form was so delicate and precise that it seemed more like a thought than a flower, or at the grey dawn and rapturous faces of my Francesca, I knew all a Christian's ecstasy without his slavery to rule and custom; when I pondered over the antique bronze gods and goddesses, which I had mortgaged my house to buy, I had all a pagan's delight in various beauty and without his terror at sleepless destiny and his labour with many sacrifices; and I had only to go to my bookshelf, where every book was bound in leather, stamped with intricate ornament, and of a carefully chosen colour: Shakespeare in the orange of the glory of the world, Dante in the dull red of his anger, Milton in the blue grey of his formal calm; and I could experience what I would of human passions without their bitterness and without satiety. I had gathered about me all gods because I believed in none, and experienced every pleasure because I gave myself to none, but held myself apart, individual, indissoluble, a mirror of polished steel: I looked in the triumph of this imagination at the birds of Hera, glowing in the firelight as though they were wrought of jewels; and to my mind, for which symbolism wa - Author: W.B. Yeats
Peace And Serenity quotes by W.B. Yeats
#37. Sacred rest is not just about sleeping or taking it easy. It consists of physical, emotional, and spiritual rest. The purpose is to promote a healthier mindset, attitudes, boundaries, relationships, productivity, and wellness as a whole person; body, mind, and spirit. - Author: Dana Arcuri
Peace And Serenity quotes by Dana Arcuri
#38. With so much trauma and drama in everyday life, the beauty of peace and solitude beckons like an oasis in a barren wasteland. - Author: Jo Ann V. Glim
Peace And Serenity quotes by Jo Ann V. Glim

Peace And Serenity quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#40. these words of wisdom, so rarely understood: "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill towards men. - Author: Jules Verne
Peace And Serenity quotes by Jules Verne
#41. ...The happy Warrior... is he... whose powers shed round him in the common strife, or mild concerns of ordinary life, a constant influence, a peculiar grace; but who, if he be called upon to face some awful moment to which Heaven has joined great issues, good or bad for human kind, is happy as a lover; and attired with sudden brightness, like a man inspired; and, through the heat of conflict, keeps the law in calmness made, and sees what he foresaw; or if an unexpected call succeed, come when it will, is equal to the need: he who, though thus endued as with a sense and faculty for storm and turbulence, is yet a soul whose master-bias leans to homefelt pleasures and to gentle scenes; sweet images! which, wheresoe'er he be, are at his heart; and such fidelity it is his darling passion to approve; more brave for this, that he hath much to love:- - Author: William Wordsworth
Peace And Serenity quotes by William Wordsworth
#42. Political and social events must also be effective, but not in a very obvious fashion. But political confusion and prolonged peace undoubtedly affect creative thought but whether they respectively hinder or help it is not at all certain. - Author: John Desmond Bernal
Peace And Serenity quotes by John Desmond Bernal
#43. Death is powerful. No one is immune. And it's the living who must make their peace with it, because the dead don't give a shit. - Author: Liliana Hart
Peace And Serenity quotes by Liliana Hart
#44. If we live our lives as a gift it is possible to reach a blissful state of eternal happiness. It is those who live their life with a sense of entitlement that undermine peace , freedom and liberty. Know that every breath is a miracle and every moment a blessing and you will achieve your dreams. Planning other people's actions means to prevent them from planning for themselves, means to deprive them of their essentially human quality, means enslaving them. - Author: Ludwig Von Mises
Peace And Serenity quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#45. The result of my journey was to bring a certain mental peace. Where there had been chaos there was now order. My mind was at rest. I had a philosophy at last. The words of Christ "The Kingdom of Heaven is within you," had a new meaning for me. Not in the past or in the future, but now and here is Heaven within us. All our duties lie in this world and in the present, and trying impatiently to peer into that which lies beyond is as vain as fruitless. - Author: Andrew Carnegie
Peace And Serenity quotes by Andrew Carnegie
#46. My fellow Americans, let us take that first step. Let us ... step back from the shadow of war and seek out the way of peace. And if that journey is a thousand miles, or even more, let history record that we, in this land, at this time, took the first step. - Author: John F. Kennedy
Peace And Serenity quotes by John F. Kennedy

Peace And Serenity quotes by Mikhail Naimy

Peace And Serenity quotes by Daisaku Ikeda

Peace And Serenity quotes by Harriet Tubman
#52. Work is already underway today on creating unique high-precision weapons systems and manoeuvrable combat units that will have an unpredictable flight trajectory for the potential opponent. Along with the means for overcoming anti-missile defences that we already have, these new types of arms will enable us to maintain what is definitely one of the most important guarantees of lasting peace, namely, the strategic balance of forces. - Author: Vladimir Putin
Peace And Serenity quotes by Vladimir Putin
#53. #Truth You are a lot greater than the people you have to chase and beg to be in their lives. Stop selling yourself short!
