this doctrine say: for the uncontrolled there is no wisdom,nor for the uncontrolled is there the power of of concentration and for him without concentration there is no peace.and for the unpeaceful,how can there be happiness. Descartes said :i think therefore i am. Tacitus in agric.30 says solitudinum faciunt,pacem appellant(they make a desert and call it peace). I wanted to put these qoutes in context for one common idea. Can one only have peace when one is alone. Is lack of self control the cause for the lack of peace?. Which of these qoutes is right in regard to individual peace and how affects ones life and decisions?
