"Who among us has a true home? Who feels comfortable at home in their own country? I have a home, and I feel very comfortable in my home, even though I have been exiled from my home coutry for almost forty years. My true home is not limited to a particular place or a time. My true home is the present moment, whatever is happening right here and right now." -Thich Nhat Hanh
"Thich Nhat Hanh shows us the connection between personal inner peace and peace on earth." -His Holiness the Dalai Lama
