I begin to think, that a calm is not desirable in any situation in life....Man was made for action and for bustle too, I believe.
more Abigail Adams quotes
Banks have done more injury to the religion, morality, tranquility, prosperity, and even wealth of the nation than they can have done or ever will do good.
more John Adams quotes
And that the said Constitution be never construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the press,  or the rights of conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms; or to raise standing armies, unless necessary for the defense of the United States, or of some one or more of them; or to prevent the people from petitioning, in a peaceable and orderly manner, the federal legislature, for a redress of grievances; or to subject the people to unreasonable searches and seizures of their persons, papers or possessions.
more Samuel Adams quotes
He therefore is the truest friend to the liberty of his country who tries most to promote its virtue, and who, so far as his power and influence extend, will not suffer a man to be chosen into any office of power and trust who is not a wise and virtuous man...The sum of all is, if we would most truly enjoy this gift of Heaven, let us become a virtuous people.
more Samuel Adams quotes
A crust eaten in peace is better than a banquet partaken in anxiety.
more Aesop quotes
We stand today at a crossroads: One path leads to despair and utter hopelessness. The other leads to total extinction. Let us hope we have the wisdom to make the right choice.
more Woody Allen quotes
Marihuana leads to pacifism and communist brainwashing.
more Harry J. Anslinger quotes
The best way of avenging thyself is not to become like the wrong-doer.
more Marcus Aurelius Antoninus quotes
Men exist for the sake of one another. Teach them then or bear with them.
more Marcus Aurelius Antoninus quotes
In order for a war to be just, three things are necessary. First, the authority of the sovereign.... Secondly, a just cause.... Thirdly ... a rightful intention.
more Saint Thomas Aquinas quotes
Choose your friends carefully. Your enemies will choose you.
more Yassir Arafat quotes
Thus, if there exists a law which sanctions slavery or monopoly, oppression or robbery, in any form whatever, it must not even be mentioned. For how can it be mentioned without damaging the respect which it inspires? Still further, morality and political economy must be taught from the point of view of this law; from the supposition that it must be a just law merely because it is a law. Another effect of this tragic perversion of the law is that it gives an exaggerated importance to political passions and conflicts, and to politics in general.
more Frederic Bastiat quotes
Sometimes the law defends plunder and participates in it. Thus the beneficiaries are spared the shame and danger that their acts would otherwise involve... But how is this legal plunder to be identified? Quite simply. See if the law takes from some persons what belongs to them and gives it to the other persons to whom it doesn't belong. See if the law benefits one citizen at the expense of another by doing what the citizen himself cannot do without committing a crime. Then abolish that law without delay ... No legal plunder; this is the principle of justice, peace, order, stability, harmony and logic.
more Frederic Bastiat quotes
Men naturally rebel against the injustice of which they are victims. Thus, when plunder is organized by law for the profit of those who make the law, all the plundered classes try somehow to enter -- by peaceful or revolutionary means -- into the making of laws. According to their degree of enlightenment, these plundered classes may propose one of two entirely different purposes when they attempt to attain political power: Either they may wish to stop lawful plunder, or they may wish to share in it.
more Frederic Bastiat quotes
Government should allow persons to engage in whatever conduct they want to, no matter how deviant or abnormal it may be, so long as (a) they know what they are doing, (b) they consent to it, and (c) no one -- at least no one other than the participants -- is harmed by it.
more Hugo Adam Bedau quotes
Protectionism is a misnomer. The only people protected by tariffs, quotas and trade restrictions are those engaged in uneconomic and wasteful activity. Free trade is the only philosophy compatible with international peace and prosperity.
more Dr. Walter Block quotes
Protectionism is a misnomer. The only people protected by tariffs, quotas and trade restrictions are those engaged in uneconomic and wasteful activity. Free trade is the only philosophy compatible with international peace and prosperity.
more Walter Block quotes
It is an approved maxim in war, never to do what the enemy wishes you to do, for this reason alone, that he desires it.
more Napoleon Bonaparte quotes
If they want peace, nations should avoid the pin-pricks that precede cannon shots.
more Napoleon Bonaparte quotes
We have grasped the mystery of the atom and rejected the Sermon on the Mount. Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants. We know more about war than we know about peace, more about killing that we know about living.
more General Omar Bradley quotes
The constitutional right of free speech has been declared to be the same in peace and war. In peace, too, men may differ widely as to what loyalty to our country demands, and an intolerant majority, swayed by passion or by fear, may be prone in the future, as it has been in the past, to stamp as disloyal opinions with which it disagrees.
more Justice Louis D. Brandeis quotes
Friendship is the only cure for hatred, the only guarantee of peace.
more Buddha quotes
After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn't do it. I sure as hell wouldn't want to live in a society where the only people allowed guns are the police and the military.
more William S. Burroughs quotes
My vision of a 'new world order' foresees a United Nations with a revitalized peacekeeping function.
more George Herbert Walker Bush quotes
The choice is his [Saddam Hussein's], and if he does not disarm, the United States of America will lead a coalition and disarm him in the name of Peace.
more George W. Bush quotes
He makes a solitude, and calls it - peace.
more Lord Byron quotes
When the swords flash let no idea of love, piety, or even the face of your fathers move you.
more Gaius Julius Caesar quotes
You can do more with a kind word and a gun than with just a kind word.
more Al Capone quotes
The decision to attack the entire nation [of Yugoslavia] has been counterproductive, and our destruction of civilian life has now become senseless and excessively brutal. ... The United States' insistence on the use of cluster bombs, designed to kill or maim humans, is condemned almost universally and brings discredit on our nation (as does our refusal to support a ban on land mines). Even for the world's only superpower, the ends don't always justify the means.
more Jimmy Carter quotes
Perhaps the removal of trade restrictions throughout the world would do more for the cause of universal peace than can any political union of peoples separated by trade barriers.
more Frank Chodorov quotes
Hitler knows that he will have to break us in this island or lose the war. If we can stand up to him, all Europe may be free, and life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands.  But if we fall, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age... Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that, if the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say, 'This was their finest hour.'
more Sir Winston Churchill quotes
Courage is the first of human qualities because it is the quality which guarantees all others.
more Sir Winston Churchill quotes
In wartime, truth is so precious that she should always be attended by a bodyguard of lies.
more Sir Winston Churchill quotes
I would say to the House, as I said to those who have joined this government, I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat. We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind. We have before us many, many long months of struggle and of suffering. You ask, what is our policy? I will say: It is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us; to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark, lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: Victory -- victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory, however long and hard the road may be; for without victory there is no survival.
more Sir Winston Churchill quotes
Today we may say aloud before an awe-struck world: 'We are still masters of our fate. We are still captain of our souls.'
more Sir Winston Churchill quotes
This truth may be unfashionable, unpalatable, no doubt unpopular, but, if it is the truth, the story of mankind shows that war was universal and unceasing for millions of years before armaments were invented or armies organized. Indeed, the lucid intervals of peace and order only occurred in human history after armaments in the hands of strong governments have come into being, and civilization in every age has been nursed only in cradles guarded by superior weapons and superior discipline.
more Winston Churchill quotes
...there is no provision in the Charter itself that contemplates ending war. It is true the Charter provides for force to bring peace, but such use of force is itself war... The Charter is a war document not a peace document... Not only does the Charter Organization not prevent future wars, but it makes it practically certain that we shall have future wars, and as to such wars it takes from us the power to declare them, to choose the side on which we shall fight, to determine what forces and military equipment we shall use in the war, and to control and command our sons who do the fighting.
more J. Reuben Clark, Jr. quotes
He who wants peace must prepare for war.
more Claudius quotes
War is too serious a matter to entrust to military men.
more Georges Clemenceau quotes
Since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that the defenses of peace must be constructed.
more Constitution of UNESCO quotes
A man must keep a little back shop where he can be himself without reserve. In solitude alone can he know true freedom.
more Michel De Montaigne quotes
It is within the police power of the state to prohibit public use of fighting words that create a danger of breach of the peace, but simply to prohibit public use of fighting words is too broad. Those words may sometimes be used in situations where there is no danger.
more Ithiel De Sola Pool quotes
All those who seek to destroy the liberties of a democratic nation ought to know that war is the surest and shortest means to accomplish it.
more Alexis de Tocqueville quotes
Beware lest in your anxiety to avoid war you obtain a master.
more Demosthenes quotes
Let thy speech be better than silence, or be silent.
more Dionysius, the Elder quotes
If you establish a democracy, you must in due time reap the fruits of a democracy. You will in due season have great impatience of the public burdens, combined in due season with great increase of the public expenditure. You will in due season have wars entered into from passion and not from reason; and you will in due season submit to peace ignominiously sought and ignominiously obtained, which will diminish your authority and perhaps endanger your independence. You will in due season find your property is less valueable, and your freedom less complete.
more Benjamin Disraeli quotes
The right to be let alone is indeed the beginning of all freedom.
more Justice William O. Douglas quotes
The Constitution is not neutral. It was designed to take the government off the backs of people.
more Justice William O. Douglas quotes
There can be no peace on earth as long as there is war in love.
more Dieter Duhm quotes
I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.
