On Peace

People who talk about peace are very often the most quarrelsome.
~ ~ ~Lady Nancy Astor

Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.
~ ~ ~Buddha

If there is righteousness in the heart,
there will be beauty in the character.
If there is beauty in the character,
there will be harmony in the home.
If there is harmony in the home,
there will be order in the nation.
When there is order in the nation, there will be peace in the world.
~ ~ ~Chinese Proverb

We shall find peace. We shall hear angels, we shall see the sky sparkling with diamonds.
~ ~ ~Anton Pavlovich Chekhov

We discovered that peace at any price is no peace at all.
~ ~ ~Eve Denise Curie

All of us who are concerned for peace and triumph of reason and justice must be keenly aware how small an influence reason and honest good will exert upon events in the political field.
~ ~ ~Albert Einstein

Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained through understanding.
~ ~ ~Albert Einstein

It is easier to lead men to combat, stirring up their passion, than to restrain them and direct them toward the patient labors of peace.
~ ~ ~André Gide

I think that people want peace so much that one of these days government had better get out of their way and let them have it.
~ ~ ~Dwight David Eisenhower

Buried was the bloody hatchet.
Buried was the dreadful war club;
Buried were all warlike weapons,
And the war-cry was forgotten.
There was peace among the nations.
~ ~ ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow "Hiawatha"

... peace is a militant thing ... any peace movement must have behind it a higher passion than the desire for war. No one can be a pacifist without being ready to fight for peace and die for peace.
~ ~ ~Mary Heaton Vorse "A Footnote to Folly"

Peace hath higher tests of manhood
Than battle ever knew.
~ ~ ~John Greenleaf Whittier
