Peace

Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will be as one.

John Lennon (1940-1980) British musician.

If you wish for peace be ready for war.

Proverb

Peace is normally a great good, and normally it coincides with righteousness, but it is righteousness and not peace which should bind the conscience of a nation as it should bind the conscience of an individual; and neither a nation nor an individual can surrender conscience to another's keeping.

Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919) 26th president of the U.S.

Observe good faith and justice toward all nations. Cultivate peace and harmony with all.

George Washington (1732-1799) First President of the USA.

A peace above all earthly dignities, a still and quiet conscience.

William Shakespeare (1564-1616) British poet and playwright.

It is an unfortunate fact that we can secure peace only by preparing for war.

John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA

Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal.

Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968) American black leader.

Everybody today seems to be in such a terrible rush, anxious for greater developments and greater riches and so on, so that children have very little time for their parents. Parents have very little time for each other, and in the home begins the disruption of peace of the world.

Mother Teresa (1910-1997) Albanian-born missionary.

We can best help you to prevent war not by repeating your words and following your methods but by finding new words and creating new methods.

Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) British novelist and essayist.

You either get tired fighting for peace, or you die.

John Lennon (1940-1980) British musician.
