Jim Wallis
“It just doesn’t make spiritual sense to suggest that the evil all lies “out there” with our adversaries and enemies, and none of it is “in here” with us—embedded in our own attitudes, behaviors, and policies.”
Jim Wallis, God's Politics: Why the Right Gets It Wrong and the Left Doesn't Get It

“What I would like to leave behind is a simple prayer that each of you may find what I have found—God’s special gift to us all: the gift of peace. When we are at peace, we find the freedom to be most fully who we are, even in the worst of times. We let go of what is nonessential and embrace what is essential. We empty ourselves so that God may more fully work within us. And we become instruments in the hands of the Lord.”
Joseph Bernardin, The Gift of Peace

Nelson Mandela
“There is a universal respect and even admiration for those who are humble and simple by nature, and who have absolute confidence in all human beings irrespective of their social status.”
Nelson Mandela, Conversations With Myself

Jon Meacham
“Steadiness of faith, was, in the long run, as illuminating and essential as sophistication of thought.”
Jon Meacham, American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House

Kristi Bowman
“The key to ultimate happiness and fulfillment lies within our own transformation. The more we learn and grow and evolve as individuals, the more we will find happiness and satisfaction in relationships, work and life.”
Kristi Bowman
