On January 1, Pace e Bene and Campaign Nonviolence launched This Nonviolent Life, a new free daily service to help inspire you on your nonviolent journey.
When you sign up, you’ll receive a short email once a day with a quotation, story, meditation or poem to help inspire you along the path of nonviolence. It is a great opportunity to help you practice nonviolence toward yourself, others and the world.
This daily spark of inspiration echoes the title of John Dear’s powerful book, The Nonviolent Life, and will draw on the wisdom of many practitioners and thinkers working for a more just, peaceful and sustainable world drawing on the vision and methods of nonviolence.
Here are examples of the powerful quotes you will receive:
“Nonviolence demands an active universal love for the whole human race which vigorously pursues the truth of our common humanity.” — John Dear
“I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good it does is only temporary — and the evil is does is permanent.” — Mohandas Gandhi
“Nonviolence is not inaction. It is not discussion. It is not for the timid or weak… Non-violence is hard work.” ― César Chávez
“There’s a place between passivity and violence. I’ll meet you there.”― Rivera Sun
