Dona Nobis Pacem


We look forward to the time when the Power of Love will replace the Love of Power. Then will our world know the blessings of peace.
~William Ewart Gladstone

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

Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained through understanding.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

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

You cannot shake hands with a clenched fist.
~Golda Meir and Indira Gandhi

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

Five great enemies to peace inhabit with us: avarice, ambition, envy, anger, and pride. If those enemies were to be banished, we should infallibly enjoy perpetual peace.
~Francesco Petrarch

An eye for eye only ends up making the whole world blind. ~Mahatma Gandhi

There is one armor that the world of men and women, as a world, has never yet put on. The churches have long bungled with its fastenings, but the world has gone unfended, and few have been those in whose hands the mystical sword of the spirit has shone with daily use. This armor, waiting to be worn, is the armor of brotherhood and sacrifice, the world of unselfishness, a conquering sword, with the power, where used, to unite the world in love. And there are none who may not put it on.
~M.A. DeWolfe Howe

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 Eisenhower

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

We seek peace, knowing that peace is the climate of freedom.

~Dwight D. Eisenhower

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

In the name of peace
They waged the wars
Ain't they got
no shame?
~Nikki Giovanni

Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.
~Seymour Miller & Jill Jackson

Let us love the world to peace.
~Eileen Elias Freeman
