Peace, in the sense of the absence of war, is of lit­tle val­ue to some­one who is dying of hunger or cold. It will not remove the pain of tor­ture inflict­ed on a pris­on­er of con­science. It does not com­fort those who have lost their loved ones in floods caused by sense­less defor­esta­tion in a neigh­bor­ing coun­try. Peace can only last where human rights are respect­ed, where the peo­ple are fed, and where indi­vid­u­als and nations are free.
The Dalai Lama
