ENVISION Quotes

 

Imagine a better world...Imagine peace on earth!
-- Robert Alan Silverstein

The biggest obstacle for creating a culture of peace is that most people won't let themselves even think about peace on earth.
-- Robert Alan Silverstein

If only we could have a wealth of literature and music and art that would inspire and encourage us and show us how wonderful peace on earth could be, perhaps we would be more excited about working together to create a better world. If you are a writer, artist, musician or filmmaker, and you dream of peace on earth, please use your creativity to help create a better world.
-- Robert Alan Silverstein

Imagine a world where nations never war.
Where no more weapons are fired any more.

And the rule of law is stronger than the rule of might.
Imagine a world where everyone has all they need.
Where kindness and compassion are taught instead of greed.
Imagine a better world...Imagine peace on earth!

Imagine a world where the global economy
is based on what's best for all earth's communities.
Where beauty and art and the media inspire
The best in all, and lift our spirits higher.
Imagine a world where science and technology
Serve only to bring out the best in humanity.
Imagine a better world...Imagine peace on earth!

Imagine a world where no child is left behind
Where children everywhere are free to educate their minds.
Imagine a world where tolerance and diversity
Are the golden rule that guides humanity.
Imagine a world where people don't neglect
The beauty of the earth, and treat it with respect.
Imagine a better world...Imagine peace on earth!
-- Robert Alan Silverstein (Based on Pathways To Peace's "Imagine A World")

So each individual that stands up is a part of a bigger prayer.
-- Russell Simmons
