Peace quotes page 2

has his freedom.

anything by war except peace.
Harry Truman

Respect for the rights of others is peace.
Mexican proverb

The basis of world peace is the teaching which runs through almost all the great religions of
the world. "Love thy neighbor as thyself." Christ, some of the great Jewish teachers, Buddha,
all preached it. Their followers forgot it. What is the trouble between capital and labor, what
is the trouble in many of our communities, but rather a universal forgetting that this teaching
is one of our first obligations.
Eleanor Roosevelt

Peace is not absence of conflict, it is the ability to handle conflict by peaceful means.

becomes your partner.

advancement of humankind.
Daisaku Ikeda

In order to have peace we must want it, and not always doubt it.
Aristide Briand, Nobel peace prize winner

Peace is not a relationship of nations. It is a condition of mind brought about by a serenity of
soul. Peace is not merely the absence of war. It is also a state of mind. Lasting peace can
come only to peaceful people.
Jawaharlal Nehru

Never "for the sake of peace and quiet" deny your own experience or convictions.
Dag Hammarskjold

Peace has never come from dropping bombs. Real peace comes from enlightenment and
educating people to behave more in a divine manner.

The most disadvantageous peace is better than the most just war.
Desiderius Erasmus

If you want to make peace, you don't talk to your friends. You talk to your enemies.
Moshe Dayan

I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our
governments. Indeed, 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

benevolence, confidence, justice.
