and women and peace among the nations of
the Earth."
- Pope Benedict XVI
"We like to put sacred texts in flowing waters,
so I rolled it up, tied it to a piece of wood,
placed a dandelion on top, and floated it in the
stream which flows into the Swat River. Surely
God would find it there."
- Malala Yousafzai

shine a light on a future of promise and
opportunity. Member States have

"Peace demands the most heroic labor and


the most difficult sacrifice. It demands
greater heroism than war. It demands greater
fidelity to the truth and a much more perfect
purity of conscience."

Sustainable Development. It is an agenda


for people, to end poverty in all its forms.
An agenda for the planet, our common
home. An agenda for shared prosperity,
peace and partnership."
