Voice of the Day: Jean Vanier

By the Web Editors 11-11-2013
"Peace is not stasis; it is not the absence of violence: where there is isolation, separation and indifference between peoples, conflict can break out at any time. Nor is it simply civility and respect for the law, in which the walls of separation remain firm. Peace, rather, is the counter-dynamic to competition, rivalry and the clash of strengths. Peace can only come when the chain of violence is broken and the weaker members of society are fully welcomed, loved and respected." - Jean Vanier  Jean Vanier + Sign up to receive our quote of the day via e-mail
