More and more peace

Etty Hillesum, who died at Auschwitz in 1943, has inspired me perhaps as much as anyone else whose works I have read. Here is something she said that I don't think I've taken note of before:
Ultimately we have just one moral duty: to reclaim large areas of peace in ourselves, more and more peace, and to reflect it toward others. The more peace there is in us, the more peace there will be in our troubled world.
