Peace Quotes.

Some of the best reasons we should look for peace is in the quotes of those gone before us. Those who may not have known the peace they sought. But they did wish that peace for us as I wish it for the generations to follow me, though in all honesty I’d like to taste it myself and be able to think that mankind is at last maturing.

That mankind can easily kill man, woman and child and then go home to the family he has sworn to protect makes me think there is a lack of morality in mankind that he quite enjoys. We must fight to cure this and become the carer of each other in order to preserve that which mankind is supposed to stand for.

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”
Martin Luther King Jr., A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches

“You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us. And the world will live as one.”
John Lennon

“An eye for an eye will only make the whole world blind.”
Mahatma Gandhi

“Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity.”
George Carlin

“Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.”
Albert Einstein

“The day the power of love overrules the love of power, the world will know peace.”
Mahatma Gandhi

“Whenever you are confronted with an opponent. Conquer him with love.”
Mahatma Gandhi

“Until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace.”
Albert Schweitzer

“You may choose to look the other way but you can never say again that you did not know.”
William Wilberforce

“Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars… Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
