This is the way of PEACE:
overcome evil with good, and falsehood with truth,
and hatred with love.

"To the millions who live in this world today let me say that there are many worthwhile things little people can do, both individually and collectively. When I dedicated my life to be of as much service as possible to my fellow human beings someone said to me very sarcastically, 'What do you think you can do?' And I replied, 'I know I am a little person and can do only little things, but there are so many little things that need to be done.' And I never had any trouble finding worthwhile little things to do. When I started my pilgrimage I was asking for very big things and someone said to me then, 'You might as well ask for the moon.' But I answered, 'If enough of us little people ask together even very, very big things will be granted.'

I can say this to you: Live the present. Do the things you know need to be done. Do all the good you can each day.The future will unfold."
