Put up again thy sword into its place: for all they that take the sword shall perish by the sword.
more Jesus of Nazareth quotes
We are reluctant to admit that we owe our liberties to men of a type that today we hate and fear -- unruly men, disturbers of the peace, men who resent and denounce what Whitman called 'the insolence of elected persons' -- in a word, free men.
more Gerald W. Johnson quotes
Among the innumerable mortifications which waylay human arrogance on every side may well be reckoned our ignorance of the most common objects and effects, a defect of which we become more sensible by every attempt to supply it. Vulgar and inactive minds confound familiarity with knowledge and conceive themselves informed of the whole nature of things when they are shown their form or told their use; but the speculatist, who is not content with superficial views, harasses himself with fruitless curiosity, and still, as he inquires more, perceives only that he knows less.
more Dr. Samuel Johnson quotes
The enjoyment of power inevitably corrupts the judgment of reason, and perverts its liberty.
more Immanuel Kant quotes
Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.
more John F. Kennedy quotes
But peace does not rest in the charters and covenants alone. It lies in the hearts and minds of all people. So let us not rest all our hopes on parchment and on paper, let us strive to build peace, a desire for peace, a willingness to work for peace in the hearts and minds of all of our people. I believe that we can. I believe the problems of human destiny are not beyond the reach of human beings.
more John F. Kennedy quotes
The inhabitant of London could order by telephone, sipping his morning tea in bed, the various products of the whole earth -- he could at the same time and by the same means adventure his wealth in the natural resources and new enterprise of any quarter of the world -- he could secure forthwith, if he wished, cheap and comfortable means of transit to any country or climate without passport or other formality.
more John Maynard Keynes quotes
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
more Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. quotes
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: 'We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.' ... I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today.
more Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. quotes
I have a dream that one day ... the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.
more Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. quotes
We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force.
more Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. quotes
We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.
more Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. quotes
The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it... Through violence you may murder the hater, but you do not murder hate. In fact, violence merely increases hate.... Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
more Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. quotes
When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, 'Free at last! free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!'
more Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. quotes
The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nation until the bright day of justice emerges. But there is something that I must say to my people who stand on the warm threshold which leads into the palace of justice. In the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.
more Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. quotes
This will be the day when all of God's children will be able to sing with a new meaning, "My country, 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrim's pride, from every mountainside, let freedom ring." And if America is to be a great nation, this must become true. So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York. Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania! Let freedom ring from the snowcapped Rockies of Colorado! Let freedom ring from the curvaceous peaks of California! But not only that; let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia! Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee! Let freedom ring from every hill and every molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring.
more Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. quotes
We have war when at least one of the parties to a conflict wants something more than it wants peace.
more Jeane J. Kirkpatrick quotes
Each person will have a registered number, without which he will not be allowed to buy or sell; and there will be one universal world church. Anyone who refuses to take part in this universal system will have no right to exist.
more Dr. Kurt E. Koch quotes
Without law or compulsion, men would dwell in harmony.
more Lao-Tzu quotes
With virtue and quietness one may conquer the world.
more Lao-Tzu quotes
There is no such thing as an inevitable war. If war comes it will be from failure of human wisdom.
more Andrew B. Law quotes
[W]e made a great mistake in the beginning of our struggle, and I fear, in spite of all we can do, it will prove to be a fatal mistake. We appointed all our worst generals to command our armies, and all our best generals to edit the newspapers.
more Robert E. Lee quotes
It is well that war is so terrible -- we should grow too fond of it.
more Robert E. Lee quotes
It would be the greatest mistake, certainly, to think that concessions mean peace. Nothing of the kind. Concessions are nothing but a new form of war.
more Vladimir Ilyich Lenin quotes
War creates no absolutely new situation: it simply aggravates the permanent human situation so that we can no longer ignore it. Human life has always been lived on the edge of a precipice.
more C. S. Lewis quotes
Nothing is more conducive to peace of mind than not having any opinions at all.
more Georg Christoph Lichtenberg quotes
Military glory -- the attractive rainbow that rises in showers of blood.
more Abraham Lincoln quotes
Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. Point out to them how the nominal winner is often a real loser - in fees, expenses, and waste of time. As a peacemaker the lawyer has a superior opportunity of being a good man. There will still be business enough.
more Abraham Lincoln quotes
Kings had always been involving and impoverishing their people in wars, pretending generally, if not always, that the good of the people was the object.
more Abraham Lincoln quotes
If the innocent honest Man must quietly quit all he has for Peace sake, to him who will lay violent hands upon it, I desire it may be considered what kind of Peace there will be in the World, which consists only in Violence and Rapine; and which is to be maintained only for the benefit of Robbers and Oppressors.
more John Locke quotes
Peace if possible, but truth at any rate.
more Martin Luther quotes
In war there is no substitute for victory.
more General Douglas MacArthur quotes
Old soldiers never die; they just fade away.
more General Douglas MacArthur quotes
No man is entitled to the blessings of freedom unless he be vigilant in its preservation.
more General Douglas MacArthur quotes
Wars are caused by undefended wealth.
more General Douglas MacArthur quotes
Among other causes of misfortune which your not being armed brings upon you, it makes you despised....
more Niccolo Machiavelli quotes
Where the very safety of the country depends upon the resolution to be taken, no consideration of justice or injustice, humanity or cruelty, nor of glory or of shame, should be allowed to prevail. But putting all other considerations aside, the only question should be: What course will save the life and liberty of the country?
more Niccolo Machiavelli quotes
It is a principle incorporated into the settled policy of America, that as peace is better than war, war is better than tribute.
more James Madison quotes
The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation and foreign commerce.
more James Madison quotes
The strongest passions and most dangerous weaknesses of the human breast; ambition, avarice, vanity, the honorable or venal love of fame, are all in conspiracy against the desire and duty of peace.
more James Madison quotes
War is in fact the true nurse of executive aggrandizement.
more James Madison quotes
A universal peace, it is to be feared, is in the catalogue of events, which will never exist but in the imaginations of visionary philosophers, or in the breasts of benevolent enthusiasts.
more James Madison quotes
No man escapes
When freedom fails,
The best men rot in filthy jails;
And they who cried: “Appease, Appease!”
Are hanged by men they tried to please.

more Hiram Mann quotes
We will offer the Christian world unheard of peace overtures, and these nations, stupid and decadent, will leap at the chance to be our friends; they will willingly cooperate in their own destruction. Then, when their guard is down, and they have gone to sleep, we will smash them with our clenched fist.
more Dmitri Manuilsky quotes
There is a wonderful mythical law of nature that the three things we crave most in life -- happiness, freedom, and peace of mind -- are always attained by giving them to someone else.
more Peyton Conway March quotes
The meaning of peace is the absence of opposition to Socialism.
more Karl Marx quotes
Ense petit placidam sub libertate quietem (By the sword we seek peace, but peace only under liberty)
more Massachusetts State Motto quotes
What good does it do to ban some guns. All guns should be banned.
