“When I say it’s you I like,
I’m talking about that part of you
that knows that life is far more than anything
you can ever see or hear or touch.
That deep part of you that allows
you to stand for those things
without which humankind cannot survive.
Love that conquers hate,
peace that rises triumphant over war,
and justice that proves more powerful than greed.”
“Ultimately, we have just one moral duty:
to reclaim large areas of peace in ourselves,
more and more peace, and to reflect it toward others.
And the more peace there is in us,
the more peace there will also be in our troubled world.”
“May our daily choices be a reflection of our deepest values,
and may we use our voices to speak for those who need us most,
those who have no voice,
those who have no choice.”
“Make peace with silence,
and remind yourself that it is in this space
that you’ll come to remember your spirit.
When you’re able to transcend an aversion to silence,
you’ll also transcend many other miseries.
And it is in this silence
that the remembrance of God will be activated.”
Wayne W. Dyer
