Working for peace through good

Out of the thoughts of what is good, peace is born. In the strength of peace, we want what is good for all people and all things. A heart that thinks evil cheats itself and everyone else: it becomes unhappy and spreads unhappiness. But whoever works for peace through good – only love born of truth is good – brings the joy of life to people.

– Eberhard Arnold, Innerland, ‘The Peace of God’.
