Thich Nhat Hanh, Vietnamese poet and author. He was nominated by Martin Luther King, Jr. for the Nobel Peace Prize. A fabulous writer, check out one of my favorites: Peace Is Every Step for mindfulness and mental calm.
"Peace is every step.
The shining red sun is my heart.
Each flower smiles with me.
How green, how fresh all that grows.
How cool the wind blows.
Peace is every step.
It turns the endless path to joy."
