Peace a path, violence, a direction, peace is illusional, it's preferred over violence, which is delusional; peacing pays only much less than warring- no profit, pleasure in destruction or murder :)

What is real in this world and what is not may just be a matter of perspective. However I believe it is important to be firmly grounded in this reality and to do no harm. We are not alone.

The people of the world long for their leaders to be wise, honest and fair. We do not want 'protection' used as disguise for attack. The Elders have a huge role to play in this. Thank you RB

I am deeply moved to embrace and live Madiba's wisdom. Such an enormous void can only be filled with the determination to carry out his vision of unity for humanity. RIP beautiful soul

Grief can interrupt the abiity to build peaceful relationships. It can even obstruct the ability to see that possibility. Healing grief, then, is an integral part of the peacemaking process.

The Elders is the most important group I believe has ever been formed. It is a reminder that the world must listen to wisdom if humanity is to heal its wounds and embrace a positive future.

We owe it to the young people of the world to create an environment of peace. To show them that war is a destructive force for the whole of the human race. I support the elders and send them love.

Peace is truly a working effort, while war and hatred seem to come easily. Our job is to show our children that peace is worth our greatest effort.

Sadly, the meetings in Europe this week aren't leading to a breakthrough to halt Israeli settlements in Palestine and make way for the peace process to recommence. http://bit.ly/o9Cre

Peace is an activity, not a place or an end--it's an ongoing process of connection and conversation and exploration. And I can think of no better work to be engaged in. Thank you, each, so, so much.

We obtained peace in Northern Ireland through dialogue. I pray that one day a lasting and sustainable solution can be obtained in the Middle East through similar, peaceful dialogue.

Help Greek politicians solve the debt crisis without exhausting to death the Greek people. The way they have begun solving the crisis does not allow growth.

Apparently all humanity began in South Africa, millions of years ago. So we should all belong to it, as it's the home of our ancestors. Mandela believed in the idea of , "All Rights for All" Do you?

I would like to suggest that peace is not an end state, but the by-product of something else. What is that "something else?"
