“We must not bring one war to an end, or thirty, but the idea of war itself.” ~ Deepak Chopra (born October 22, 1946)
Indeed. What a fine way to bring this International Day of Peace to an end. Blessings to the peacemakers.
Deepak Chopra is an Indian American physician, author, public speaker, and popularizer of alternative medicine. The above quotation is from his book Peace is the Way: Bringing War and Violence to an End in Our Time (2005).
Peace is the Way is based on a famous quotation from Mohandas K. Gandhi, “There is no way to peace. Peace is the way.”
