Wisdom from Polonius

Thoughts of Peace


Ralph Waldo Emerson

Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained through understanding.


Andre Gide

It is easier to lead men to combat, stirring up their passion, than to restrain them and direct them toward the patient labors of peace.


Buddha

Better than a thousand hollow words is one word that brings peace.


The XIVth Dalai Lama

Human Beings, indeed all sentient beings, have the right to pursue happiness and live in peace and freedom.


Daisaku Ikeda

Nothing is more precious than peace. Peace is the most basic starting point for the advancement of humankind.


Martin Luther King, Jr.

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


Dwight D. Eisenhower

I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it.
