Quotes by Vietnamese Activist Nhat Hanh


People deal too much with the negative, with what is wrong. Why not try and see positive things, to just touch those things and make them bloom? Nhat Hanh

If in our daily life we can smile, if we can be peaceful and happy, not only we, but everyone will profit from it. This is the most basic kind of peace work. Nhat Hanh

Smiling is very important. If we are not able to smile, then the world will not have peace. It is not by going out for a demonstration against nuclear missiles that we can bring about peace. It is with our capacity of smiling, breathing, and being peace that we can make peace. Nhat Hanh
