“You are a light. You are the light. Never let anyone—any person or any force—dampen, dim or diminish your light. Study the path of others to make your way easier and more abundant. Lean toward the whispers of your own heart, discover the universal truth, and follow its dictates…Release the need to hate, to harbor division, and the enticement of revenge. Release all bitterness. Hold only love, only peace in your heart, knowing that the battle of good to overcome evil is already won.”
Congressman John Lewis, Across That Bridge: A Vision for Change and the Future of America
"If there is one thing that I have learned in all my years, it is that transformation begins within. If you want to change the world and bring about a more peaceful society, you have to start with yourself. There is a battle that rages within. When you're angry, you're quick to fight, place blame, complain, and criticize. If your inner life is in turmoil, how can you expect to radiate warmth and harmony in the world? How can you expect others to join you in your mission to heal the world?"
Congressman & Civil Rights Leader John Lewis in Carry On: Reflections for a New Generation
“Contributing to peace is no longer optional. We all need to do more to deliver on our promise, our north star… Let’s leverage the increasing momentum for change and enhanced collaboration…to live up to our shared responsibility in pursuit of peace and progress for all. ”
Interpeace, UN Food and Agriculture Organization, and the International Organization for Migration
“The peace I am thinking of is the dance of an open mind when it engages another equally open one.”
Nobel Laureate and Pulitzer Prize Winning Author Toni Morrison
"When the marginalized and the disadvantaged rise, we gain the power that belongs to us. And we know that power is real because they are doing everything in their power to stop us from achieving our own. But I know a little something about power. What I've learned is that you don't get the power you ask for, you get the power you take."
Stacey Abrams, Changemaker, Yale-trained Attorney, Founder of Fair Fight, NOW Account, CEO of Sage Works Productions, Writer, Gubernatorial Candidate for Georgia
“When I dare to be powerful—to use my strength in the service of my vision—then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid."
Intersectional Feminist, Scholar, Activist, and Poet Audre Lorde in The Transformation of Silence into Language & Action
“You didn't see me on television, you didn't see news stories about me. The kind of role that I tried to play was to pick up pieces or put together pieces out of which I hoped organization might come. My theory is, strong people don't need strong leaders.”
Ella Baker, Civil Rights Leader, Coalition Builder, Movement Maker
“You cannot, you cannot use someone else’s fire. You can only use your own. And in order to do that, you must first be willing to believe that you have it.”
“Everywhere we are talking about peaceful humanity. The peaceful world. This is not from prayer, not from technology, not from money, not from religion, but from mother! This is my fundamental belief. Mother, I consider, our first teacher. [She] teaches compassion. The first day after my birth, immediately I learned, I experienced, mother’s sort of compassion, mother’s affection. That I think is the most important part of building a healthy family. And that means healthy humanity.”
–Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet
"...I take myself back, fear.
You are not my shadow any longer.
I won’t hold you in my hands.
You can’t live in my eyes, my ears, my voice
my belly, or in my heart my heart
my heart my heart
But come here, fear
I am alive and you are so afraid
US Poet Laureate Joy Harjo
"Indigenous people see the physical world as a reflection of a more complex, subtler, and more lasting yet invisible entity called energy. It is as if we are the shadows of a vibrant and endlessly resourceful intelligence dynamically involved in a process of continuous self-creation. Nothing happens here that did not begin in that unseen world. If something in the physical world is experiencing instability, it is because its energetic correspondent has been experiencing instability. The indigenous understanding is that the material and physical problems that a person encounters are important only because they are an energetic message sent to this visible world. Therefore, people go to that unseen energetic place to try to repair whatever damage or disturbances are being done there, knowing that if things are healed there, things will be healed here. Ritual is the principal tool used to approach that unseen world in a way that will rearrange the structure of the physical world and bring about material transformation."
