I could not live in peace if I put the shadow of a willful sin between myself and God.
True Peace is not merely the absence of tension: it is the presence of justice.Martin Luther King Jr.
Firebugs dragging their gasoline bottles Are approaching the Academy of Arts, with a grin. And so, instead of embracing them, Let us demand the freedom of the elbow To knock the bottles out of their filthy hands. Even the most blockheaded bureaucrat, Provided he loves Peace, Is a greater lover of the arts Than any so-called art-lover Who loves the arts of war.bertolt brecht

May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you Peace.Bible (Old Testament)
What a cruel thing is war; to separate and destroy families and friends, and mar the purest joys and happiness God has granted us in this world; to fill our hearts with hatred instead of love for our neighbours, and to devastate the fair face of this beautiful world! I pray that, on this day when only Peace and good-will are preached to mankind, better thoughts may fill the hearts of our enemies and turn them to Peace. ... My heart bleeds at the death of every one of our gallant men.robert e. lee
I really wanted to retire and rest and spend more time with my children, my grandchildren and of course with my wife. But the problems are such that for anybody with a conscience who can use whatever influence he may have to try to bring about Peace, it's difficult to say no.nelson mandela
[Chernobyl has strengthened the] growing impulse to escape from the nightmare of Peace being dependent upon the contemplation of horrific and mutual carnage. Events have now so developed that this aspiration can at last be rationally, logically and – I dare to add – patriotically seized by the people of the United Kingdom if they will use their votes to do so.enoch powell

Libertarians believe the answer to America's political problems is the same commitment to freedom that earned America its greatness: a free-market economy and the abundance and prosperity it brings; a dedication to civil liberties and personal freedom that marks this country above all others; and a foreign policy of non-intervention, Peace, and free trade as prescribed by America's founders.
Now I see Peace to corrupt no less than war to waste.john milton
As on the Sea of Galilee, The Christ is whispering "Peace."john greenleaf whittier
There will be no Peace in Europe if the States rebuild themselves on the basis of national sovereignty, with its implications of prestige politics and economic protection (...). The countries of Europe are not strong enough individually to be able to guarantee prosperity and social development for their peoples. The States of Europe must therefore form a federation or a European entity that would make them into a common economic unit.jean monnet
Not every painter has a gift for painting, in fact, many painters are disappointed when they meet with difficulties in art. Painting done under pressure by artists without the necessary talent can only give rise to formlessness, as painting is a profession that requires Peace of mind. The painter must always seek the essence of things, always represent the essential characteristics and emotions of the person he is painting...titian

That the people have a Right to mass and to bear arms; that a well regulated militia composed of the Body of the people, trained to arms, is the proper natural and safe defense of a free state, that standing armies, in time of Peace, are dangerous to liberty, and therefore ought to be avoided.george mason
There is, though I do not know how there is or why there is, a sense of infinite Peace and protection in the glittering hosts of heaven. There it must be, I think, in the vast and eternal laws of matter, and not in the daily cares and sins and troubles of men, that whatever is more than animal within us must find its solace and its hope.
My attitude to Peace is rather based on the Burmese definition of Peace - it really means removing all the negative factors that destroy Peace in this world. So Peace does not mean just putting an end to violence or to war, but to all other factors that threaten Peace, such as discrimination, such as inequality, poverty.
If we desire to avoid insult, we must be able to repel it; if we desire to secure Peace, one of the most powerful instruments of our rising prosperity, it must be known, that we are at all times ready for War.george washington
