If there is to be peace in the world, there must be peace in the nations
If there is to be peace in the nations, there
must be peace in the cities
If there is to be peace in the cities,
there must be peace between neighbors
If there is to be peace between neighbors,
there must be peace in the home
If there is to be peace in the home,
there must be peace in the heart
— Laozi, China’s greatest sage, and the world’s first anarchist
