Dona Nobis Pacem

I don't think I can say it any better than this:

There never was a good war or a bad peace.
- Ben Franklin

You can't shake hands with a clenched fist.
- Indira Gandhi

When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.
- Jimi Hendrix

One day we must come to see that peace is not merely a distant goal we seek, but that it is a means by which we arrive at that goal. We must pursue peaceful ends through peaceful means.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

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

Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants. We know more about war than we know about peace, more about killing than we know about living. We have grasped the mystery of the atom and rejected the Sermon on the Mount.
- Omar Bradley

The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only object of good government.
- Thomas Jefferson

We must shift the arms race into a 'peace race'.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.
