Peace Is King

Blessed Are The Peacemakers

Sunday is the anniversary of the birth of Martin Luther King, so before you dash off for the fun of a three day weekend, take a moment to think.

Martin Luther King
The Nobel Peace Prize 1964

"Man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love."
--Martin Luther King, Jr.

"Non-violence is the first article of my faith. It is also the last article of my creed."
--Mahatma Gandhi

"There is no way to peace. Peace is the way."
--A. J. Muste

"We cannot be satisfied with a situation in which the world is capable of extinction in a moment of error, or madness, or anger."
--John F. Kennedy

"We plant seeds that will flower as results in our lives, so best to remove the weeds of anger, avarice, envy and doubt, that peace and abundance may manifest for all."
--Dorothy Day

"Nothing could be worse than the fear that one had given up too soon, and left one unexpended effort that might have saved the world."
--Jane Addams, Nobel Peace Prize Winner 1931

"In the hearts of people today there is a deep longing for peace. ... Only when this really happens-- when the spirit of peace awakens and takes possession of men's hearts, can humanity be saved from perishing."
