HARVARD SQUARE COMMENTARY

Wisdom from Polonius

Peace


Peace can endure only so long as humanity really insists upon it, and is willing to work for it and sacrifice for it. Twenty- five years ago American fighting men looked to the statesmen of the world to finish the work of peace for which they fought and suffered; we failed them, we failed them then, we cannot fail them again and expect the world to survive again.

- - Franklin D. Roosevelt - -


Making peace, I have found, is much harder than making war.

- - Gerry Adams- -


... peace is a militant thing ... any peace movement must have behind it a higher passion than the desire for war. No one can be a pacifist without being ready to fight for peace and die for peace.

- - Mary Heaton Vorse- -


Peace is no more than a dream as long as we need the comfort of the clan.

- - Peter Nicols- -
