There will be no future without forgiveness. Any process of peace is bound to collapse if this is missing. There is no way peace and stability can come through the gun of vengeance.

— Archbishop Desmond M. Tutu
Nobel Laureate in Peace

Without changing one’s self, without peace in one’s self, world peace is not possible.

— His Holiness the Dalai Lama
Nobel Laureate in Peace

A spiritual experience is the goal of a deeply religious person whereas a major discovery or an invention is the goal of a scientific mind. If both the aspects are unified, amalgamated in our own patterns, we can transcend to that level of thinking in which unity is a cohesive aspect. For this environment the two major components – Science and Spirituality have to interact.

— Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
President of India

I became conscious of the indwelling presence of God in my heart, in every human heart and in Creation. I knew then that God’s purpose for each of us is to love and be loved, that
every human life is sacred, and that I could not hurt or kill another person in whom God dwells.

— Ms. Mairead Maguire
Nobel Laureate in Peace

Peace is not a dream; it is hard work, and there is nothing naive, glamorous or simplistic about it.

— Dr. Oscar Arias
Nobel Laureate in Peace

… inspite of various differences among all of us, we are all brothers and sisters of one species, living together on this planet Earth, sharing a common abode.

— Ms. Shirin Ebadi
Nobel Laureate in Peace
