Today’s Quote – 2007.05.17

“If there is to be peace in the world,
There must be peace in the nations.

If there is to be peace in the nations,
There must be peace in the cities.

If there is to be peace in the cities,
There must be peace between neighbors.

If there is to be peace between neighbors,
There must be peace in the home.

If there is to be peace in the home,
There must be peace in the heart.”

Lao Tzu (Laozi) (4th Century B.C.E.)

R.

    I absolutely love the quote the way you cited it!

  5. Of course it’s from a Unitarian site that you found the information –
