Criss Jami, Salomé: In Every Inch In Every Mile

Charlie Kaufman, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind: The Shooting Script

“APPLY WITHIN

You once told me
You wanted to find
Yourself in the world -
And I told you to
First apply within,
To discover the world
within you.

You once told me
You wanted to save
The world from all its wars -
And I told you to
First save yourself
From the world,
And all the wars
You put yourself
Through.


APPLY WITHIN by Suzy Kassem”

Criss Jami
“The first ingredient to being wrong is to claim that you are right. Geniuses have a knack for raising new questions. Hence by the public they are either admired for their creativity or, even more commonly so, detested for disturbing the daily peace of mind.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

Shine your soul with the same egoless humility as the rainbow and no matter where

Aberjhani, Journey through the Power of the Rainbow: Quotations from a Life Made Out of Poetry

Amit Ray, Nonviolence: The Transforming Power

Kazuo Ishiguro
“Perhaps there are those who are able to go about their lives unfettered by such concerns. But for those like us, our fate is to face the world as orphans, chasing through long years the shadows of vanished parents. There is nothing for it but to try and see through our missions to the end, as best we can, for until we do so, we will be permitted no calm.”
Kazuo Ishiguro, When We Were Orphans

Pablo
“Stay away from conflictive, negative people that pull you down, because they contaminate your energy and impede your progress. Search for people who look at the world with optimism, that inspire you, make you happy and provide peace of mind.”
Pablo

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“if only these treasures were not so fragile as they are precious and beautiful.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, The Sorrows of Young Werther

Amaka Imani Nkosazana
“People will always notice something about you. It might be the way you walk or the way you talk, or just simply your personality. Live each day in the way you want to be remembered. Live in such a way that people will be inspired by those unique qualities that you have and strive to live better lives for themselves.”
Amaka Imani Nkosazana

Ocean Vuong
“Rush-hour on the A rain. A blind man
staggers forth, his cane tapping lightly
own the aisle. He leans against the door,

raises a violin to chin, and says I’m sorry
to bother you, folks. But please. Just listen.
And it kills me, the word sorry. As if something like music

should be forgiven. He nuzzles into the wood like a lover,
inhales, and at the first slow stroke, the crescendo
seeps through our skin like warm water, we

who have nothing but destinations, who dream of light
but descend into the mouths of tunnels, searching.
Beads of sweat fall from his brow, making dark roses

on the instrument. His head swooning to each chord
exhaled through the hollow torso. The woman beside me
has put down her book, closed her eyes, the baby

has stopped crying, the cop has sat down, and I know
this train is too fast for dreaming, that these iron jaws
will always open to swallow a smile already lost.

How insufficient the memory, to fail before death.
how will hear these notes when the train slides
into the yard, the lights turned out, and the song

lingers with breaths rising from empty seats?
I know I am too human to praise what is fading.
But for now, I just want to listen as the train fills

completely with warm water, and we are all
swimming slowly toward the man with Mozart
flowing from his hands. I want nothing

but to put my fingers inside his mouth,
let that prayer hum through my veins.
I want crawl into the hole in his violin.

I want to sleep there
until my flesh
becomes music.”
Ocean Vuong

Holly Mosier
“Perfection of effort is not required, by the way. It is the consistency of attempting to work these tools that brings the progress. It’s like anything else. If I want to tone muscle, lifting a ten-pound weight a few times every day will move me toward my goal much quicker than hoisting a fifty-pound barbell once a week. Yes, it really is true: “Slow and steady wins the race.” Just try a little, every day. You’ll see.”
Holly Mosier

Max Ehrmann
“Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life,
keep peace in your soul.


With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.”
Max Ehrmann, Desiderata: A Poem for a Way of Life

Knowledge planted in truth grows in truth. Strength born of peace loses nothing to hate.
“Knowledge planted in truth grows in truth.
Strength born of peace loses nothing to hate.”
Aberjhani, Elemental: The Power of Illuminated Love

Jack Kornfield
“If you put a spoonful of salt
in a cup of water
it tastes very salty.
If you put a spoonful of salt
in a lake of fresh water
the taste is still pure and clear.

Peace comes when our hearts are
open like the sky,
vast as the ocean.”
Jack Kornfield, The Art of Forgiveness, Lovingkindness, and Peace

George Orwell
“He wondered vaguely whether in the abolished past it had been a normal experience to lie in bed like this, in the cool of a summer evening, a man and a woman with no clothes on, making love when they chose, talking of what they chose, not feeling any compulsion to get up, simply lying there and listening to peaceful sounds outside. Surely there could never have been a time when that seemed ordinary?”
George Orwell, 1984

Donna Goddard
“A balanced inner calmness radiates from a peaceful centre. It neither craves others' approval nor rejects others' presence. It neither pulls towards nor pushes away. It has a reverent attitude towards life and all its inhabitants.”
Donna Goddard, The Love of Devotion

Amit Ray
“Earth is the play ground of our children and their children. We cannot allow it to be the play ground of the nuclear arms of the evil forces.”
Amit Ray, Peace on the Earth A Nuclear Weapons Free World

Sri Chinmoy
“Have little,
Need less:
This is the way
To inner peace.

Surrender is a journey
From the outer turmoil
To the inner peace.

Peace
Is in inner awakening,
And this inner awakening
We must share
With the rest of the world.”
Sri Chinmoy

Kamal Ravikant
“Peace is letting it be. Letting life flow, letting emotions flow through you.”
Kamal Ravikant, Live Your Truth

“Truth is not for sale. The man who sells truths that could help and guide humanity will never have peace of mind. Share truths freely, and you will always be revealed more.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Marianne Williamson
“The most powerful thought is a prayerful thought. When I'm praying for you, I am praying for my own peace of mind. I can only have for myself what I am willing to wish for you.”
Marianne Williamson, Tears to Triumph: The Spiritual Journey from Suffering to Enlightenment
