War is Peace
Freedom is Slavery
Ignorance is Strength

George Orwell, Book "1984"

War is pillage versus resistance and if illusions of magnitude could be transmuted into ideals of magnanimity, peace might be realized.

Marianne Moore

War may sometimes be a necessary evil. But no matter how necessary, it is always an evil, never a good. We will not learn how to live together in peace by killing each other's children.

Jimmy Carter

War should never be entered upon until every agency of peace has failed.

William McKinley

Wars begin in the minds of man, and in those minds, love and compassion would have built the defenses of peace.

U Thant

We can gain no lasting peace if we approach it with suspicion and mistrust or with fear. We can gain it only if we proceed with the understanding, the confidence, and the courage which flow from conviction.

Franklin D. Roosevelt, Fourth Inaugural Address, Jan. 20, 1945

We can work on inner peace and world peace at the same time. On one hand, people have found inner peace by losing themselves in a cause larger than themselves, like the cause of world peace, because finding inner peace means coming from the self-centered life into the life centered in the good of the whole. On the other hand, one of the ways of working for world peace is to work for more inner peace, because world peace will never be stable until enough of us find inner peace to stabilize it.

Peace Pilgrim

We discovered that peace at any price is no peace at all.

Eve Denise Curie

We have heard much of the phrase, peace and friendship. This phrase, in expressing the aspiration of America, is not complete. We should say instead, peace and friendship, in freedom. This, I think, is America's real message to the rest of the world.

Dwight D. Eisenhower

We have the right to "Freedom of Peace".

Mary N. Carnahan

We know that dictators are quick to choose aggression, while free nations strive to resolve differences in peace. We know that oppressive governments support terror, while free governments fight the terrorists in their midst. We know that free peoples embrace progress and life, instead of becoming the recruits for murderous ideologies.

George W. Bush, Speech to UN General Assembly, September 21, 2004

We look forward to the time when the Power of Love will replace the Love of Power. Then will our world know the blessings of Peace.

William Ewart Gladstone

We look forward to the time when the power to love will replace the love of power. Then will our world know the blessings of peace.

William Gladstone

We make war that we may live in peace.

Aristotle

We merely want to live in peace with all the world, to trade with them, to commune with them, to learn from their culture as they may learn from ours, so that the products of our toil may be used for our schools and our roads and our churches and not for guns and planes and tanks and ships of war.

Dwight D. Eisenhower

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

Martin Luther King, Jr.

We shall find peace. We shall hear angels, we shall see the sky sparkling with diamonds.

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov

We shall find peace. We shall hear the angels, we shall see the sky sparkling with diamonds.

Anton Chekhov

We will not have peace by afterthought.

Norman Cousins

What a beautiful fix we are in now; peace has been declared.

Napoleon Bonaparte, 1802

What is the most profitable? Fellowship with the good. What is the worst thing in the world? The society of evil men. What is the greatest loss? Failure in one?s duty. Where is the greatest peace? In truth and righteousness. Who is the hero? The man who subdues his senses. Who is the best beloved? The faithful wife. What is wealth? Knowledge. What is the most perfect happiness? Staying at home.

Bhartrihari

What we need is Star Peace and not Star Wars.

Mikhail Sergeyevich Gorbachev

What you care about is what makes who you are! If you care about peace, this makes you a man!

Mehmet Murat ildan

Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will finally know peace.

Jimi Hendrix
