Peace is not an external environment but an internal one. (Quoted by Kary Oberbrunner, motivational speaker and writer)

In a world torn with conflict—both personal and global—we often long for the laying down of arms and the end of physical battles. The goal of worldwide peace may be unattainable by human means. But we can enjoy internal peace, which, by the way, could be the first step to a wider, external peace. Inner peace can result in outward harmony.

Jesus: “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.” . . . “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 14:27; 16:33)
