Regarder un atome le change, regarder un homme le transforme, regarder l'avenir le bouleverse.
[Gaston Berger]

Ce n'est pas la lumière qui manque à notre regard, c'est notre regard qui manque de lumière.
[Gustave Thibon]

Le courage, c'est d'aimer la vie et de regarder la mort d'un regard tranquille.
[Jean Jaurès]

Tant de mains pour transformer ce monde, et si peu de regards pour le contempler !
[Julien Gracq]


Une charte pour la Compassion.

Religious thinker Karen Armstrong has written more than 20 books on faith and the major religions, studying what Islam, Judaism and Christianity have in common, and how our faiths shaped world history and drive current events.

A former nun, Armstrong has written two books about this experience: Through the Narrow Gate, about her seven years in the convent, and The Spiral Staircase, about her subsequent spiritual awakening, when she developed her iconoclastic take on the major monotheistic religions -- and on the strains of fundamentalism common to all. She is a powerful voice for ecumenical understanding.

Armstrong's TED Prize wish asks us to help her assemble a Council on Compassion, where religious leaders can work together for peace.
