Everybody In This Life Has Their Challenges And Difficulties. That Is Part Of Our Mortal Test.... Peace Comes Through Hope.
~ James E. Faust
Virtuous Motives, Trammeled By Inertia And Timidity, Are No Match For Armed And Resolute Wickedness. A Sincere Love Of Peace Is No Excuse For Muddling Hundreds Of Millions Of Humble Folk Into Total War. The Cheers Of The Weak, Well-meaning Assemblies Soon Cease To Count. Doom Marches On.
~ Sir Winston Churchill, March 1936, demanding British re-armament
An Election Is Coming. Universal Peace Is Declared And The Foxes Have Sincere Interest In Prolonging The Lives Of The Poultry.
~ T. S. Eliot, Quoted in the May, 24 edition of "The Montreal Gazette"
The World Must Be Made Safe For Democracy. Its Peace Must Be Planted Upon The Tested Foundations Of Political Liberty.
~ Woodrow Wilson, Speech to Congress, Apr. 2, 1917
The Name Of Peace Is Sweet, And The Thing Itself Is Beneficial, But There Is A Great Difference Between Peace And Servitude. Peace Is Freedom In Tranquillity, Servitude Is The Worst Of All Evils, To Be Resisted Not Only By War, But Even By Death.
We Will Not Have Peace By Afterthought.
~ Norman Cousins
No Man Can Sit Down And Withhold His Hands From The Warfare Against Wrong And Get Peace From His Acquiescence.
~ Woodrow Wilson
Violence Is Unnecessary And Costly. Peace Is The Only Way.
~ Julius K. Nyerere
It? S Utterly Impossible For Me To Build My Life On A Foundation Of Chaos, Suffering And Death. I See The World Being Slowly Transformed Into A Wilderness, I Hear The Approaching Thunder That, One Day, Will Destroy Us Too, I Feel The Suffering Of Millions. And Yet, When I Look Up At The Sky, I Somehow Feel That Everything Will Change For The Better, That This Cruelty Too Shall End, That Peace And Tranquility Will Return Once More.
~ Anne Frank, Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl, July 15, 1944
Peace Is Not A Relationship Of Nations. It Is A Condition Of Mind Brought About By A Serenity Of Soul. Peace Is Not Merely The Absence Of War. It Is Also A State Of Mind. Lasting Peace Can Come Only To Peaceful People.
~ Jawaharlal Nehru
Not Merely An Absence Of Noise, Real Silence Begins When A Reasonable Being Withdraws From The Noise In Order To Find Peace And Order In His Inner Sanctuary.
~ Peter Minard
We Must Come To See That Peace Is Not Merely A Distant Goal We Seek, But It Is A Means By Which We Arrive At That Goal. We Must Pursue Peaceful Ends Through Peaceful Means.
~ Martin Luther King, Jr
