For Peace: Voices Against the Fog and Blood of War
A selection of prose and poetry through the ages edited
by Ruth Finnegan
The central tenets here are most often, given my background, come from Christianity. Some however are drawn, as they must be, from the rich insights of other traditions. They are essential in throwing light on the parallelisms between the great faiths in their search for peace and reconciliation among all peoples, in our day, in the past and, we would hope, in the future.
For who, from the far mists of time up to the generations of today, is not interested in peace?
‘Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace’—Gautama Buddha
‘Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Peace begins with a smile’—Mother Teresa
