Peace and its many aspects

(More) Peace Quotes

I had not seen (or at least can’t remember seeing) these.

——

If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other. ~Mother Teresa

If they want peace, nations should avoid the pin-pricks that precede cannon shots.  ~Napoleon Bonaparte

The more we sweat in peace the less we bleed in war.  ~Vijaya Lakshmi Pandit

The pacifist’s task today is to find a method of helping and healing which provides a revolutionary constructive substitute for war.  ~Vera Brittain, 1964

Peace hath higher tests of manhood
Than battle ever knew.

~John Greenleaf Whittier

Yes, we love peace, but we are not willing to take wounds for it, as we are for war. ~John Andrew Holmes, Wisdom in Small Doses

Lord, bid war’s trumpet cease;
Fold the whole earth in peace.

~Oliver Wendell Holmes

We have all taken risks in the making of war.  Isn’t it time that we should take risks to secure peace? ~J. Ramsay MacDonald

Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon.  A happiness weapon.  A beauty bomb.  And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one.  It would explode high in the air – explode softly – and send thousands, millions, of little parachutes into the air.  Floating down to earth – boxes of Crayolas.  And we wouldn’t go cheap, either – not little boxes of eight.  Boxes of sixty-four, with the sharpener built right in.  With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest.  And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with imagination. ~Robert Fulghum
