Inhaltsangabe: A gift of hope and inspiration. A tribute to the human spirit ... and a piece of history. This remarkable book communicates in word and photos the harsh reality that was the Berlin Wall and the historical circumstances that saw it changed from a bitter symbol of a divided world to a hopeful sign of peace. But it is about more than the Wall and it's graffiti. It is about the walls in our daily lives, how these add up to a fragmented world, and how, bit by bit (peace by peace?), we can free our world. Its witness to a consciousness change from division and separation to unity, oneness, and human caring. It's about the family of man. And it is a record of the demonstration of the very real possibility of individual and world peace. The writing's on the wall.
Auszug. © Nachdruck mit Genehmigung. Alle Rechte vorbehalten.: The following are samples of quotations from the book:
Man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love. - Martin Luther King
'Love thy neighbor as thyself,' It would be splendid to think Christ's message about loving our neighbors a ourselves might at last be headed. - Queen Elizabeth II
Anyone who chooses to live their life in loving can change the world. - John-Roger
There is a strong shadow where there is much light. - Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
I think that people want peace so much that one of these days government had better get out of the way and let them have it. - Dwight D. Eisenhower
Do you know what amazes me more than anything else?...the impotence of force to organize anything. There are only two powers in the world - the spirit and the sword: and in the long run the sword will always be conquered by the spirit. - Napoleon Bonaparte
Nothing is good or bad, but thinking makes it so. - William Shakespeare
The Bible teaches quite unequivocally that people are created for fellowship, for togetherness; not for alienation, apartness, enmity, and division. - Archbishop Desmond Tutu
The earth is a depot, where wingless angels pass the time waiting for the long ride home. Seeing a small boy smiling in the corner I said, 'You must be anxious to go home.' 'I am home,' he replied, 'I just come here to play the games'. - Oliver Makin
You must give some time to your fellow man. Even if it's a little thing, do something for those who have need of help, something for which you get no pay but the privilege of doing it. For remember, you don't live in a world all your own. Your brothers are here too. - Albert Schweitzer
Peace, peace on earth, goodwill to men, real peace, real goodwill is more a goal than a reality. Until truly there is goodwill among men, not a wall to divide them, our pursuit of peace shall continue. The Christmas lights of free Berlin cast a glow which penetrates deep into the darkness surrounding. No wall can keep out this light. We know that this beacon will continue to shine brightly for many years to come. - John Fitzgerald Kennedy (Christmas message to the people of West Berlin on December 25, 1961)
