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
Create all the happiness you are able to create: remove all the misery you are able to remove. Every day will allow you to add something to the pleasure of others, or to diminish something of their pains. And for every grain of enjoyment you sow in the bosom of another, you shall find a harvest in your own bosom; while every sorrow which you pluck out from the thoughts and feelings of a fellow creature shall be replaced by beautiful Peace and joy in the sanctuary of your soul.jeremy bentham
Could I have but a line a century hence crediting a contribution to the advance of Peace, I would gladly yield every honor which has been accorded me in war.Douglas MacArthur
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
The Slavs have now become unrestful and will want to attack Austria. Germany is bound to stand by her ally - Russia and France will join in and then England...I am a man of Peace - but now I have to arm my Country so that whoever falls on me I can crush - and crush them I will.Kaiser Wilhelm II
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
I dreamed a place where I have come to dwell Cold Mountain says it all Monkeys scream, the valley fog is cold My door blends with the color of the peaks I gather leaves and thatch a hut among the pines Dig a pond and lead a trickle from the brook Long ago I left the world behind Eating ferns I pass the years in Peacehanshan
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.
Our tragic age demands poetry of courage and not whimpers about the inevitable end of all maya. People still extract pain of each other even after Buddha , Nanak and Gandhi have been preaching Peace .
While we shall never weary in the defense of freedom, neither shall we ever abandon the pursuit of Peace.john f. kennedy
Wisdom and policy dictate that we must do as destiny demands and keep Peace with the irresistible march of events.Napoleon I
Sir Henry Wotton?was also a most dear lover, and a frequent practiser of the art of angling; of which he would say,'it was anemployment forhisidletime?a rest to his mind, a cheerer of his spirits, a diverter of sadness, a calmer of unquiet thoughts, a moderator of passions, a procurer of contentedness; and that it begat habits of Peace and patience in those that professed and practised it.'Izaak Walton
Life, if we would mark it, is made up of thousands of suggestions from some unseen quarter, prompting us to duty; starting some thought of what is wise and right and just and good; inclining us to thoughtfulness, to meditation, to prayer; making the soul dissatisfied with its present course, and drawing it along in the path of duty, benevolence, and Peace.albert barnes
A retired physicist reading the Encyclopedia Britannica can do just so much toward securing world Peace.brian hayes
The things you hear now about European unemployment -- that there are structural problems, that real wages have failed to adjust, that there are inflationary fears -- are the same things that were said during the early 1930. It is well established that government spending began to pull Germany out of its slump in 1935. There is no known reason why spending for Peace can't do as well at getting the economy going as spending for war.lawrence summers
We know perfectly well that neither love nor Peace of mind can be bought with any currency.andrei tarkovsky
In Italy, for thirty years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed - they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo Da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland, they had brotherly love and five hundred years of democracy and Peace, and what did they produce? The cuckoo clock!orson welles
A woman's exterior beauty is a reflection of her internal Peace and happiness.gloria estefan
These people are making a choice for Peace and that means that the time is coming in which this insurgency will have no foothold, in which it will be defeated, defeated by Iraqis and in which we can fully come home.condoleezza rice
During these four years the arms race has exacerbated the threat to Peace, heightening the anxieties of peoples and imposing heavier burdens on each nation at the expense of its economic and social development.
