A few simple rules that I have found for seeking happiness: - good nutrition - good thinking - love for life - meditation and prayer
Once during the war, a very intelligent man, a hat manufacturer from Belgium, visited our family. He heard my father complain about the hardness of the times. He went to the bathroom and brought back a fragrant bar of prewar toilet soap which my mother had extracted from her treasure chest in his honor. He passed it around and asked everyone to take a deep breath of its delightful fragrance. Then he said:
"Once this war is over never will any one of us feel again the happiness we enjoy at this moment in touching and smelling this soft, heavenly, rate bar of soap. At every time of one' life, in every circumstance, there is a certain form of happiness. The art of living consists in seeking out these special moments!'

| Robert's Golden Sayings |
|Use the cosmic energy in you. Attract it like a magnet. Cosmic energy is seeking to build. If it feels that you are a builder it will come to you. If you ignore it or reject it, it will flee you. Yes dear reader, please use the cosmic, divine forces in and all around you. I have learned to do it and I am a very happy man. |
My Testament to the UN
-A Contribution to the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations, 1995, Chapter 6
| During the fortieth anniversary of the UN, a group of Alsatian children visited the UN. After the speech I gave them in the Dag Hammarskjold auditorium, a little boy asked me this question: |
"Why doesn't the UN eliminate all borders?"
I had no good answer, except to say that Alsatian-Lorrainers were the first to try to eliminate borders in Europe, that they succeeded, and that we will also succeed for the rest of the world.
In 1989, in my acceptance speech of the Peace Education Prize of UNESCO, I expressed the hope that I would be present in my home-town of Sarreguemines in Alsace-Lorraine to see the border between France and Germany dismantled once and forever in 1993. 1 hated this border during my entire youth, seeing it from my window and being constantly reminded of the division and misery it created for my family and for so many people.
How can I respect nationalism, when it caused my poor grandfather to have five successive nationalities in his lifetime without leaving his village, my father to be first a German soldier and then a French soldier, and myself to be in the French underground, while my cousins wore French and German uniforms?
I hate not only war, but also artificial national borders and sovereignty. This is my right. This is my freedom.

Dear Robert Mullers,
I wish you a happy and healthfull New Year and I hope your voice will be heart all over the world.
To-day I read an interview with you in the Dutch magazine ODE.
You are a great man and I love your ideas for a peacefull world.
We have something in common, as I share your goals for a peacefull world.
I am an economist and I developped a new economic approach (model) for a world that cares for the future. I call it the Economy of Care. It is based on the paradigm of the "caring human being" in stead of the egoistic "rational economic man". Mankind survived throughout wars and crisis thanks to the caring human being. The Economy of Care can bring about changes in the world that makes people happy all over the world, as it will promote social justice, combat poverty and social exclusion, and establish an economical system that is in balance with ecological systems.
I would like to establish an international school for the Economy of Care.
I am looking for sponsors to help me to initiate such an international school.
For anyone who can understand dutch, you can read more about the Economy of Care (Zorgeconomie) on my website www.OQadvies.com
With best regards,
Thera van Osch.
I hope this email finds you in good health. I had the honor of sitting beside you at a luncheon in Evergreen, Colorado many years ago. Your commitment to World Peace has always been an inspiration to me. I am now working with an international nonprofit, 6 Friends.
Our vision is to contribute to World Peace by establishing enduring relationships across distance and diversity through a secure intranet. Our public website, www.6-friends.org explains our mission more fully. We begin with linking schools one from each of the 6 populated continents into virtual villages. I wonder if your University of Peace might be a resource for our program.
I hope to hear from others about any possibilities they see for us to network together.
In Peace and Friendship,
Establishing enduring relationships across distance and diversity
