The true nature of peace

The following quotation was sent out in an email today from Tulsa Peace Fellowship. Spinoza was a 17th century philosopher for whom I have long had great respect.

"Peace is not an absence of war, it is a virtue, a state of mind, a disposition for benevolence, confidence, justice."

-- Baruch Spinoza
