Many people value excitement, passion, and exultation more than they value peace. However, without peace, both internal and external, nothing else is possible in love, life and family. We realize the true value of peace only when we lose it and that is not good.
Check out these quotes to rediscover the benefits of a peaceful mind and a peaceful world.
You’ll never find peace of mind until you listen to your heart. – George Michael
Finding peace does not come from following the recipes of success that society forces on us. It is a solitary battle which requires a commitment to our own personal values, goals, and passions. Peace is the result of walking the path of our heart. Do not let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace. – Dalai Lama
The worst way to sabotage ourselves it to let others dictate us what to feel or think. The behavior of others affects our lives, but we should never let others reach too deep into our hearts. It is a duty to protect our inner peace.
Peace is a day-to-day problem, the product of a multitude of events and judgments. Peace is not an “is” it is a “becoming”. – Haile Selassie
Peace is not easy to attain and it is not something stable or definite. It is the process of maintaining a sense of equilibrium even when there is a clash between us and the world. Peace is a diplomatic way to handle life, which means accepting its ebbs and flows.
It isn’t enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn’t enough to believe in it. One must work at it. – Eleanor Roosevelt

Nobody can bring you peace but yourself. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
We usually define peace as an elimination of conflict, which means that inner peace can be achieved only when we work to eliminate the conflicts between our dreams and reality, and between ourselves and the world. It is an individual struggle.
Peace is liberty in tranquility. – Cicero
Peace is so valuable to us because it brings together many things that are important for our well-being, such as freedom, connection, and fulfillment. Peace is the quiet freedom of being who you want to be.
Peace is its own reward. – Mahatma Gandhi
The amazing thing about peace is that it is both the goal and the reward. Those who seek peace and work for peace find their recompensation in peace itself. Peace is a necessity that allows individuals and societies to strive, but it is also their reward for doing the right things.
The life of inner peace, being harmonious and without stress, is the easiest type of existence. – Norman Vincent Peale

Peace is letting it be. Letting life flow, letting emotions flow through you. – Kamal Ravikant

Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding. – Albert Einstein

For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Wherever there is no peace, there is anger, conflict, and misery. Every minute we spend being angry or miserable is a wasted minute. Only with peace of mind comes the ability to enjoy every moment and make the most of it.
Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming. – John Wooden

Peace begins with a smile. – Mother Teresa

Peace is not absence of conflict, it is the ability to handle conflict by peaceful means. – Ronald Reagan

Without peace, all other dreams vanish and are reduced to ashes. – Jawaharlal Nehru

You cannot find peace by avoiding life. – Virginia Woolf
A way to maintain your peace is to stay away from the messiness of life by not engaging with the world at all. However, avoidance is a shallow way to find peace. We cannot avoid life because life is in us. To ignore life is to not live at all. This is a high price to pay.
He is happiest, be he king or peasant, who finds peace in his home. – Goethe
