Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.
–Dwight Eisenhower, 1953 speech
When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.
Jimi Hendrix (1942-1970) American Musician, Guitarist, Singer, Songwriter
The opposite of war is not peace, It’s creation
The real and lasting victories are those of peace, and not of war
–Ralph Waldo Emerson
You can no more win a war than you can win an earthquake.
–Jeanette Rankin, first woman Member of Congress
Either war is obsolete or men are.
–R. Buckminster Fuller
There are no warlike people, just warlike leaders
The purpose of all war is ultimately peace.
Fighting terrorism is like being a goalkeeper. You can make a hundred brilliant saves but the only shot that people remember is the one that gets past you.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction….The chain reaction of evil — hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars — must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation.
–Martin Luther King, Jr.
Every area of trouble gives out a ray of hope; and the one unchangeable certanity is that nothing is certain or unchangeable.
–John F. Kennedy
The architects of this wickedness will find no safe harbor in this world. We will chase our enemies to the furthest corners of this Earth. It must be war without quarter, pursuit without rest, victory without qualification.
–Rep. Tom Delay, majority whip to CNN
The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident. –Psalms 27 1-3
