Blessed are the peacemakers
for they shall be called the children of God.
I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it.
Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890-1969)
There was never a good war or a bad peace.
Ben Franklin (1706-1790)
We must pursue peaceful ends through peaceful means.
Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968)
All we are saying is give peace a chance.
John Lennon (1940-1980)
The structure of world peace cannot be the work of one man or one party or one nation. It must be a peace which rests on the cooperative effort of the whole world.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt (1882-1945)
I was once asked why I don't participate in anti-war demonstrations. I said that I will never do that, but as soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I'll be there.
Mother Theresa (1910-1997)
They shall beat their swords into ploughshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
Robert Sims and Odetta
Your armed struggles for profit
Have left collars of waste upon
My shore, currents of debris upon my breast.
Yet, today I call you to my riverside,
If you will study war no more. Come,
Clad in peace and I will sing the songs
The Creator gave to me when I and the
Tree and the stone were one.
From A Distance - Bette Midler
