The common people of all nations want peace. In the presence of great impersonal forces they feel individually helpless to promote it common folk, not statesmen, nor generals, nor great men of affairs, but just simple plain men and women like the few thousand Quakers and their friends, if they devote themselves to resolute insistence on goodwill in place of force, even in the face of great disaster past or threatened, can do something to build a better, peaceful world. The future hope of peace lies with such personal sacrificial service. To this ideal humble persons everywhere may contribute.
-- Henry J. Cadbury

* It would be nave to think that peace and justice can be achieved easily. No set of rules or study of history will automatically resolve the problems However, with faith and perseverance, complex problems in the past have been resolved in our search for justice and peace.
-- Jimmy Carter

* "We live now in a global village and we are in one single family. Its our responsibility to bring friendship and love from all different places around the world and to live together in peace."
-- Jackie Chan

I have no idea if world peace is attainable. But aiming for it is.
-- Stockard Channing

Then all that has divided us will merge
And then compassion will be wedded to power
And then softness will come to a world that is harsh and unkind
And then both men and women will be gentle
And then both women and men will be strong
And then no person will be subject to another's will
And then all will be rich and free and varied
And then the greed of some will give way to the needs of many
And then all will share equally in the earth's abundance
And then all will care for the sick and the weak and the old
And then all will nourish the young
And then all will cherish life's creatures
And then all will live in harmony with each other and with the earth
And everywhere will be called Eden, once again.
-- Judy Chicago

* If we desire peace, we must prepare for peace. The most important thing is to build a culture of peace.
-- Anwarul Chowdhury

 

"If the human race wishes to have a prolonged and indefinite period of material prosperity, they have only got to behave in a peaceful and helpful way toward one another."
-- Winston Churchill

Peace is freedom in tranquility.
-- Cicero

It is easier to make war than to make peace.
-- George Clemenceau

"Peace is not just a colored ribbon. It's more than a wristband or a t-shirt. It's not just a donation or a 5 K race. It's not just a folk song, or a white dove. And peace is certainly more than a celebrity endorsement. Peace is a fulltime job. It's protecting civilians, overseeing elections, and disarming ex-combatants. The UN has over 100,000 Peacekeepers on the ground, in places others can't or won't go, doing things others can't or won't do. Peace, like war, must be waged."
-- George Clooney

What all men are really after is some form, or perhaps only some formula, of peace.
-- Joseph Conrad

* A day of peace and sharing can lead to greater understanding and cooperation among political parties, faith groups, and people of different races and economic class.
-- John Conyers

 

* "What's so funny about peace, love and understanding?"
~ Elvis Costello

* "War is an invention of the human mind. The human mind can invent peace with justice."
-- Norman Cousins

 

* I think war is based in greed and there are huge karmic retributions that will follow. I think war is never the answer to solving any problems. The best way to solve problems is to not have enemies.
-- Sheryl Crow

* "Peace can only last where human rights are respected, where the people are fed, and where individuals and nations are free."
-- 14th Dalai Lama

it is necessary to stay on the march, to be on the journey, to work for peace wherever we are at all times, because the liberty we cherish, which we would share with the world, demands eternal vigilance. And democracy is no easy path, but those of us who believe in it must be prepared to sacrifice in its cause more willingly than those who are prepared to die in the wars of aggression. We, too, must be dedicated to the cause of freedom.
-- Ossie Davis
* "What if, for one day ...all the warring parties on Earth agreed not to fire a shot for twenty-four hours? ... One Day In Peace, January 1"
-- Steve Diamond

 

What is peace? Is it war? No. Is it strife? No. Is it lovely, and gentle, and beautiful, and pleasant, and serene, and joyful? O yes!
-- Charles Dickens (Bleak House)

Peace, it's wonderful
-- Father Divine (George Baker)

 
I'm not a pacifist. I'm not that brave.
-- Phil Donahue

* ...how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they're forever banned?
-- Bob Dylan
