Well I think it has always been a mistake to reduce the peace process in Ireland to a decommissioning process. -Martin McGuinness

The advance guard in the campaign for peace that America wages today must be the State Department. -Louis A. Johnson

Political and social events must also be effective, but not in a very obvious fashion. But political confusion and prolonged peace undoubtedly affect creative thought but whether they respectively hinder or help it is not at all certain. -John Desmond Bernal

Peace Corps helps promote global acceptance of the principles of international peace and non-violent co-existence among people of diverse cultures and systems of government. -Sam Farr

At least I'm at peace with myself. I have done my best to write a book about what really happened there and why it happened and it's done, it's published. I won't write another book on Vietnam. -Neil Sheehan

Peace in the head, peace in the stomach. -Jean-Bertrand Aristide

We must all make peace so that we can all live in peace. -Jean-Bertrand Aristide

Remote villages and communities have lost their identity, and their peace and charm have been sacrificed to that worst of abominations, the automobile. -James Norman Hall

I've made my peace with myself. -Broderick Crawford

Arafat was a barrier to peace. -Chuck Schumer

You can set up whatever negotiations or structure you want, but until the Palestinians are willing to accept the fact, as the majority of Israelis do, that there should be two states between the Jordan and the Mediterranean, we won't have peace. -Chuck Schumer

The only thing I wish I had kept were all the peace beads, because in the 1960s people made these and hung them at protests and it was a wonderful thing. -David Selby

Now for my own case, I bless the Lord that, for all that hath been said of me, my conscience doth not condemn me. I do not say I am free of sin, but I am at peace with God through a slain Mediator; and I believe that there is no salvation but only in Christ. -Donald Cargill

Let us face it, the U.N. has failed. It has failed in its mission to promote world peace. -Ginny Brown-Waite

Let's win the peace and democracy the good people of Iraq so richly deserve after decades of tyranny. -Mike Pence

The central premise behind Oslo was that if Arafat were given enough legitimacy, territory, weapons and money, he would use his power to fight terror and make peace with Israel. -Natan Sharansky

Unfortunately, little attention was paid to how Arafat ruled. In fact, some saw the harsh and repressive nature of Arafat's regime as actually bolstering the prospects for peace. -Natan Sharansky

Only weeks after Oslo began, when nearly all the world and most of Israel was drunk with the idea of peace, I argued that a Palestinian society not constrained by democratic norms would be a fear society that would pose a grave threat to Israel. -Natan Sharansky

On the other hand, if the free world is concerned with how a new Palestinian leader governs, then the peace process will have a real chance to succeed. -Natan Sharansky

By focusing once and for all on helping the Palestinians build a free society, I have no doubt that an historic compromise between Israelis and Palestinians can be reached and that peace can prevail. -Natan Sharansky

Arafat rejected the deal because, as a dictator who had directed all his energies toward strengthening the Palestinians hatred toward Israel, Arafat could not afford to make peace. -Natan Sharansky

To understand why dictators have a problem with making peace – or at least a genuine peace – the link between the nature of a regime and its external behavior must be understood. -Natan Sharansky

Democratic leaders, whose power is ultimately dependent on popular support, are held accountable for failing to improve the lives of their citizens. Therefore, they have a powerful incentive to keep their societies peaceful and prosperous. -Natan Sharansky

The only peace that can be made with a dictator is once that must be based on deterrence. For today, the dictator may be your friend, but tomorrow he will need you as an enemy. -Natan Sharansky

When we are unwilling to draw clear moral lines between free societies and fear societies, when we are unwilling to call the former good and the latter evil, we will not be able to advance the cause of peace because peace cannot be disconnected from freedom. -Natan Sharansky

I am optimistic that peace can be achieved in the region because I believe that every society on earth can be free and that if freedom comes to the Middle East, there can be peace. -Natan Sharansky

For a time during the early settlement of this country peace and goodwill prevailed, only to be followed later by violent and relentless warfare. -Nelson A. Miles

Conscious of my own weakness, I can only seek fervently the guidance of the Ruler of the Universe, and, relying on His all-powerful aid, do my best to restore Union and peace to a suffering people, and to establish and guard their liberties and rights. -George B. McClellan

The Union, which can alone insure internal peace, and external security to each State, Must and Shall be Preserved, cost what it may in time, treasure, and blood. -George B. McClellan

They are patriotic in time of war because it is to their interest to be so, but in time of peace they follow power and the dollar wherever they may lead. -Henry A. Wallace

We are a Nation of peace and compassion, yet these people have and will devote every fiber of their beings to the destruction of Americans and our Country. -Charles Bass

It's not a choice between war and peace. It's a choice between war and endless war. It's not appeasement. I think it's better even to call it American self-interest. -Michael Scheuer

I feel that an understanding could be reached with Germany which would result in a lasting peace with Europe and believe that a German victory is preferable to a British and Soviet victory. -Pierre Laval

I know of no greater work for humanity than in the cause of peace, which can only be achieved by the earnest efforts of nations and peoples. -Frank B. Kellogg

These measures may not constitute an absolute guarantee of peace, but, in my opinion, they constitute the greatest preventive measures ever adopted by nations. -Frank B. Kellogg

Each one of these treaties is a step for the maintenance of peace, an additional guarantee against war. It is through such machinery that the disputes between nations will be settled and war prevented. -Frank B. Kellogg

I believe that in the end the abolition of war, the maintenance of world peace, the adjustment of international questions by pacific means will come through the force of public opinion, which controls nations and peoples. -Frank B. Kellogg

I share the opinion of those of broader vision, who see in the signs of the time hope of humanity for peace. -Frank B. Kellogg

There has not been a war in South America for fifty years, and I have every confidence that the countries of Central and South America are deeply in earnest in the maintenance of peace. -Frank B. Kellogg

It is by such means as the prize offered by your Committee that the attention of the world will be focused and that men and women will be inspired to greater efforts in the interest of peace. -Frank B. Kellogg

Competition in armament, both land and naval, is not only a terrible burden upon the people, but I believe it to be one of the greatest menaces to the peace of the world. -Frank B. Kellogg

I know that military alliances and armament have been the reliance for peace for centuries, but they do not produce peace; and when war comes, as it inevitably does under such conditions, these armaments and alliances but intensify and broaden the conflict. -Frank B. Kellogg

I know of no more important subject to the peace of Europe and the world than the reasonable reduction of armaments, especially in Europe, and of naval armaments throughout the world. -Frank B. Kellogg

Certain it is that a great responsibility rests upon the statesmen of all nations, not only to fulfill the promises for reduction in armaments, but to maintain the confidence of the people of the world in the hope of an enduring peace. -Frank B. Kellogg

If there's no inner peace, people can't give it to you. The husband can't give it to you. Your children can't give it to you. You have to give it to you. -Linda Evans

True, permanent peace can never be restored, until slavery, the occasion of the war, has ceased. -Gerrit Smith

You do have a modicum of peace of mind here, but it's as unsettled as any other place. -Todd Rundgren

It is frightening that in recent years such an increase has occurred in acts of terrorism, which have even reached peaceful countries such as ours. And as a 'remedy', more and more security forces are established to protect the lives of individual men and women. -Alva Myrdal

Nobel was a genuine friend of peace. He even went so far as to believe that he had invented a tool of destruction, dynamite, which would make war so senseless that it would become impossible. He was wrong. -Alva Myrdal

The longing for peace is rooted in the hearts of all men. But the striving, which at present has become so insistent, cannot lay claim to such an ambition as leading the way to eternal peace, or solving all disputes among nations. -Alva Myrdal

War as Napoleon knew it just not possible any more. However, we're very unlikely to accept or recognize 'world peace' even when we get it. -Bruce Sterling

I wanted to get that sense of peace and even boredom that comes with long familiarity. -Debbie Reynolds

That was my first lesson from Ben-Gurion. Then I saw him making peace, and I saw him making war. He mobilized me before the war. The man was a very rare combination between a real intellectual and a born leader. There is a contradiction between the two. -Shimon Peres

The plan shows that the twenty million people in the German democratic Republic and in the democratic sector of Berlin think only of peace, and that they are working for freedom and peaceful prosperity. -Walter Ulbricht

Back in the old Corp, we weren't training those privates to infiltrate into the peacetime Marine Corp. We were training those privates to go to Vietnam. -R. Lee Ermey

My ambition is peace and perfection. -DeForest Kelley

I'd loved to wear jeans and t-shirts, but everybody was in the peace movement back then. And that was my ploy. I had to be careful not to say things like 'I like meat.' Actually I just wanted to drink beer and to screw. -Ed O'Neill

I'm playing George quite a bit differently this season, and I'm glad you picked up on the fact that she kind of made peace with her situation at the end of last season. -Ellen Muth

I hope for peace and sanity – it's the same thing. -Studs Terkel

I want, of course, peace, grace, and beauty. How do you do that? You work for it. -Studs Terkel

It seems to be that when these communist regimes take over – if you look at the example of Vietnam or Cambodia or Nicaragua – that even in conditions of peace they don't seem to be able to figure out how to support their people, and the human suffering is enormous. -John Negroponte

For which reason I would exhort you to pay all due Regard to the government over us; to the KING and all in authority; and to lead a quiet and peaceable life. -Jonathan Mayhew

If the white man wants to live in peace with the Indian he can live in peace. -Chief Joseph

If the president is failing to disclose material facts with regard to legislation being presented to the Congress on a question as important as war and peace, I think it does impair the level of trust that the House and the Senate have for this administration. -John Dingell

I have become a prisoner of the peace movement. But you can't say that the termination is coming and then say that you are going back to your own garden to dig. -E. P. Thompson

It is only the Somalis themselves – and I don't hide that fact when I meet the political leaders here – they themselves have to stop their old practices of fighting each other every time they have a problem. They have to learn how to do peaceful conflict resolution. -Jan Egeland

The idea is that they wouldn't want to deal with militant Islam but an Islam and Muslims who are committed to progress, committed to development, who like peace and are moderate in their ways. So that's what we are doing here. -Abdullah Ahmad Badawi

I have to keep reminding myself: If you give your life to God, he doesn't promise you happiness and that everything will go well. But he does promise you peace. You can have peace and joy, even in bad circumstances. -Patricia Heaton

It's quite a famous story that takes place on Christmas Eve, and the Germans, French, and Scottish are trying to make peace one night and they bury their dead and they play football. I play a German opera singer, in German, which I never have so I am really excited about that. -Diane Kruger

I think that it's always appropriate for Americans and for American foreign policy to make clear why we feel that self-government is most compatible with peace, the well-being of people, and human dignity. -Jeane Kirkpatrick

I go gladly to my wife and boy, and I leave this world at peace with every one in it and at peace with God. -Alex Campbell

All my life I've taken photographs of people who are completely at peace being what they were in the situations I photographed them in. -Jock Sturges

An order of government, established by such an all-wise, powerful being, must be good and perfect, and must be calculated to promote the permanent peace, happiness, and well-being of all his subjects. -Orson Pratt

One cannot help being impressed by the protesters. They have begun each day of the protest in Kiev in prayer and all activities are accomplished with a collective sense of respect, kindness, and an intention to conduct a peaceful revolution. -Bob Schaffer

Even during the worst hardships, when the other things in our lives seem to fall apart, we can still find peace in the eternal love of God. -Armstrong Williams

Yet better for one of my nature to have it that way than to have life a peaceful, placid flow of quiet contentment. I must have days of rushing excitement. -Dawn Powell

There was a time in my life when I thought I had everything – millions of dollars, mansions, cars, nice clothes, beautiful women, and every other materialistic thing you can imagine. Now I struggle for peace. -Richard Pryor

The past is prophetic in that it asserts loudly that wars are poor chisels for carving out peaceful tomorrows. -Martin Luther King, Jr.

Hamas, the opponents of Arafat, the opponents of peace, urged a boycott of the election, and yet there was an 85 percent turnout where Hamas is supposed to be strong. Isn't that really quite incredible? -Warren Christopher

The Palestinian election is something that was really a turning point. It's a mandate for peace. -Warren Christopher

If the union between England and America is a powerful factor in the cause of peace, a new Triple Alliance between the Teutonic race and the two branches of the Anglo-Saxon race will be a still more potent influence in the future of the world. -Edward Grey

Where I once constantly lost my temper, I found myself arriving at a crisis and experiencing peace. -Josh McDowell

Are some women and children going to die? Yeah. But it's doing the right thing. You got money, you sit around talking about peace. People who don't have money need some help. -Kid Rock

And I have lived since – as you have – in a period of cold war, during which we have ensured by our achievements in the science and technology of destruction that a third act in this tragedy of war will result in the peace of extinction. -Lester B. Pearson

As for the promotion of peace congresses we have had our meetings and assemblies, but the promotion through them of the determined and effective will to peace displaying itself in action and policy remains to be achieved. -Lester B. Pearson

But while we all pray for peace, we do not always, as free citizens, support the policies that make for peace or reject those which do not. We want our own kind of peace, brought about in our own way. -Lester B. Pearson

I am grateful for the opportunities I have been given to participate in that work as a representative of my country, Canada, whose people have, I think, shown their devotion to peace. -Lester B. Pearson

It would be especially tragic if the people who most cherish ideals of peace, who are most anxious for political cooperation on a wider than national scale, made the mistake of underestimating the pace of economic change in our modern world. -Lester B. Pearson

Of all our dreams today there is none more important – or so hard to realise – than that of peace in the world. May we never lose our faith in it or our resolve to do everything that can be done to convert it one day into reality. -Lester B. Pearson

The choice, however, is as clear now for nations as it was once for the individual: peace or extinction. -Lester B. Pearson

True there has been more talk of peace since 1945 than, I should think, at any other time in history. At least we hear more and read more about it because man's words, for good or ill, can now so easily reach the millions. -Lester B. Pearson

I am President of the UN created University for Peace, which has a strong commitment to the relationship between peace, security and the environment. I meet with young people around the world and I always come away enthused and encouraged. -Maurice Strong

But take comfort in that I die at peace with the world and myself – not afraid. -Robert Falcon Scott

Too often in the past, U.S. leaders have forced Israel to pay the price for American strategic interests in the Middle East – through concessions in the peace process as well as passivity in the face of Iraqi attacks. -Ron Silver

But what has America to boast? What are the graces or the virtues which distinguish its inhabitants? What are their triumphs in war, or their inventions in peace? -Thomas Day

The time has come to put an end to the fratricidal war and to recover at last peace and accord. -Bao Dai

There is no peace because the making of peace is at least as costly as the making of war – at least as exigent, at least as disruptive, at least as liable to bring disgrace and prison and death in its wake. -Daniel Berrigan

Work, look for peace and calm in work: you will find it nowhere else. -Dmitri Mendeleev

Also, I am very religious. It gave me peace of mind all my career. -Emerson Fittipaldi

During this period, Japan's peaceful commercial relations were successively obstructed, primarily by the American rupture of commercial relations, and this was a grave threat to the survival of Japan. -Hideki Tojo

Throughout that period, Japan had made honest efforts to keep the destruction of war from spreading and, based on the belief that all nations of the world should find their places, had followed a policy designed to restore an expeditious peace between Japan and China. -Hideki Tojo

My presidential victory, if it had happened, would have been artificial in relation to the Socialist party. It may be that on my deathbed, I will come to regret my decision, but for the moment, I live at peace with it. -Jacques Delors

I just can't seem to write songs about peace and love. Yeah right, how do you get that? -Siobhan Fahey

I happen to dig being able to use whatever mystique I have to further the idea of peace. -Garrett Morris

Every nation sincerely desires peace; and all nations pursue courses which if persisted in, must make peace impossible. -Norman Angell

Thus, if armaments were curtailed without a secure peace and all countries disarmed proportionately, military security would have been in no way affected. -Ludwig Quidde

The relationship of the two problems is rather the reverse. To a great extent disarmament is dependent on guarantees of peace. Security comes first and disarmament second. -Ludwig Quidde

The popular, and one may say naive, idea is that peace can be secured by disarmament and that disarmament must therefore precede the attainment of absolute security and lasting peace. -Ludwig Quidde

Some pacifists have carried the sound idea of the prime importance of security too far, to the point of declaring that any consideration of disarmament is superfluous and pointless as long as eternal peace has not been attained. -Ludwig Quidde

So long as peace is not attained by law (so argue the advocates of armaments) the military protection of a country must not be undermined, and until such is the case disarmament is impossible. -Ludwig Quidde

Even a total and universal disarmament does not guarantee the maintenance of peace. -Ludwig Quidde

Disarmament or limitation of armaments, which depends on the progress made on security, also contributes to the maintenance of peace. -Ludwig Quidde

Years ago the public used to hound me but now I can go shopping in peace. -Irene Dunne

Material loss can be made up through renewed labor, but the moral wrong which has been inflicted upon the conquered peoples, in the peace dictates, leaves a burning scar on the people's conscience. -Hjalmar Schacht

But the memory of war weighs undiminished upon the people's minds. That is because deeper than material wounds, moral wounds are smarting, inflicted by the so- called peace treaties. -Hjalmar Schacht

War is not the quintessential emergency in which man has to prove himself, as my generation learned at its school desks in the days of the Kaiser; rather, peace is the emergency in which we all have to prove ourselves. -Gustav Heinemann

The time has come – and must come – for multilateral conversations about a secure peace in all of Europe. -Gustav Heinemann

The first thing I see is the obligation to serve peace. -Gustav Heinemann

Beyond peace, there is no longer any existence possible. -Gustav Heinemann

The Divine of the Lord in heaven is love, for the reason that love is receptive of all things of heaven, such as peace, intelligence, wisdom and happiness. -Emanuel Swedenborg

Serbia did not want to recognize our country in a peaceful way, so that is why they wanted to destroy us. All our efforts to find a peaceful solution were impossible. In order to save the people, NATO had to intervene. -Ibrahim Rugova

The Lord had been very gracious, and spoke peace to me in the time of my distress, and I now most ungratefully turned again to folly; at times I felt sharp reproof, but I did not get low enough to cry for help. -John Woolman

Capitalism is war; socialism is peace. -Karl Liebknecht

Class struggle: external peace, international solidarity, peace among peoples. This is the sacred slogan of international socialist democracy that liberates nations. -Karl Liebknecht

For capitalism, war and peace are business and nothing but business. -Karl Liebknecht

We remain at peace with all nations, and no efforts on my part consistent with the preservation of our rights and the honor of the country shall be spared to maintain a position so consonant to our institutions. -Martin Van Buren

I was always at peace because of the way my mom treated me. -Martina Hingis

We have a vision of South Africa in which black and white shall live and work together as equals in conditions of peace and prosperity. -Oliver Tambo

From 1836, down to last year, there is no proof of the Government having any confidence in the duration of peace, or possessing increased security against war. -Richard Cobden

I came here as a practical man, to talk, not simply on the question of peace and war, but to treat another question which is of hardly less importance – the enormous and burdensome standing armaments which it is the practice of modern Governments to sustain in time of peace. -Richard Cobden

I therefore declare, that if you wish any remission of the taxation which falls upon the homes of the people of England and Wales, you can only find it by reducing the great military establishments, and diminishing the money paid to fighting men in time of peace. -Richard Cobden

The progress of freedom depends more upon the maintenance of peace, the spread of commerce, and the diffusion of education, than upon the labors of cabinets and foreign offices. -Richard Cobden

Treaties of peace, made after war, are entrusted to individuals to negotiate and carry out. -Richard Cobden

Also a portion of my sales go directly to Greenpeace. -Rick Danko

Then, there was Greenpeace, I remember that when they first started out with the boats in the waters, and the guys in the boats between the whales and the boats that will hunting the whales with spear guns. -Rick Danko

Respect for the rights of others means peace. -Benito Juarez

The greatest injustice in the world is to bring a child into the world, and not be able to offer it peace. -Nafisa Joseph

I have traveled a long road from the battlefield to the peace table. -Moshe Dayan

I have heard that the Saudi Arabians are paying Greenpeace to campaign against Nuclear Power. It wouldn't surprise me at all. -James Lovelock

My different personalities leave me in peace now. -Anna Freud

We tried our best for the longest time to negotiate a peaceful resolution to the matter, and at each step, we were thwarted by those that said, No, we will not turn the boy over to his father. -Janet Reno

Praise the Lord, O England's Jerusalem: and Netherland's Zion, praise ye the Lord! He hath secured your gates, and blessed your possessions with peace, even here, where the threatened torch of war was lighted. -Peter Stuyvesant

For the victor peace means the preservation of the position of power which he has secured. For the vanquished it means resigning himself to the position left to him. -Gustav Stresemann

If one seeks to analyze experiences and reactions to the first postwar years, I hope one may say without being accused of bias that it is easier for the victor than for the vanquished to advocate peace. -Gustav Stresemann

In every man the memory of the struggles and the heroes of the past is alive. But these memories are not incompatible with the desire for peace in the future. -Gustav Stresemann

Voices were heard from the United States of America which made it clear that America wanted a peaceful and united Europe as a basis for mutual cooperation. -Gustav Stresemann

And the annual meetings of the League's Assembly are in effect official peace congresses binding on the participating states to an extent that most statesmen a quarter of a century ago would have regarded as utopian. -Hjalmar Branting

As a result of the World War and of a peace whose imperfections and risks are no longer denied by anyone, are we not even further away from the great aspirations and hopes for peace and fraternity than we were one or two decades ago? -Hjalmar Branting

Let us return, however, to the League of Nations. To create an organization which is in a position to protect peace in this world of conflicting interests and egotistic wills is a frighteningly difficult task. -Hjalmar Branting

This coupling together of science with international peace, is, I think, particularly significant. -Irving Langmuir

There is nothing like being left alone again, to walk peacefully with oneself in the woods. To boil one's coffee and fill one's pipe, and to think idly and slowly as one does it. -Knut Hamsun

Those who have experienced the most, have suffered so much that they have ceased to hate. Hate is more for those with a slightly guilty conscience, and who by chewing on old hate in times of peace wish to demonstrate how great they were during the war. -Thor Heyerdahl

It was a time when only the dead smiled, happy in their peace. -Anna Akhmatova

You ask me if I will not be glad when the last battle is fought, so far as the country is concerned I, of course, must wish for peace, and will be glad when the war is ended, but if I answer for myself alone, I must say that I shall regret to see the war end. -George Armstrong Custer

A similar revolving fund could be set up for Germany, for a durable peace can rest only upon a Germany that, while militarily impotent, is industrially active. -James Forrestal

By providing outstanding economic leadership, this country can wage its attack successfully – and can thereby build the foundations of a peaceful world. -James Forrestal

For the only way in which a durable peace can be created is by world-wide restoration of economic activity and international trade. -James Forrestal

My third appeal is to my fellow citizens in all countries: Help us to establish lasting peace in the world. -Joseph Rotblat

Several studies, and a number of public statements by senior military and political personalities, testify that – except for disputes between the present nuclear states – all military conflicts, as well as threats to peace, can be dealt with using conventional weapons. -Joseph Rotblat

We will not fail your expectations of us as a new nation dedicated to peace, democracy, and freedom. -Shigeru Yoshida

I have to say that elections, even in the most peaceful region, always make the hardest time for regional state institutions, including security structures. -Akhmad Kadyrov

In 2001-2002, I told the president that the election was supposed to take place when the war was over, at a time when we could return to peaceful life. We agreed upon that. However, I can see now that the election cannot be delayed any longer. -Akhmad Kadyrov

People took part in the referendum because they were tired of the war. They are afraid of talking about it out loud, but they have shown exactly where they stand: Yes, we want peace, and we want to be a part of Russia. -Akhmad Kadyrov

I intend to leave after my death a large fund for the promotion of the peace idea, but I am skeptical as to its results. -Alfred Nobel

In a case like Iraq the UN has again shown what important role it plays as the guarantor for protecting international peace and stability in the global political structure. -Anna Lindh

One of the gaps in our international development efforts is the provision of global public goods – that is, goods or conditions we need that no individual or country can secure on their own, such as halting global warming, financial stability and peace and security. -Anna Lindh

The conflict in the Middle East needs to be solved for the same reasons. It is necessary to reach a two-states solution, built on international law, for sustainable peace and development, and it can only be achieved through joint efforts by the international community. -Anna Lindh

The United Nations remains our most important global actor. These days we are continuously reminded of the enormous responsibility of the Security Council to uphold international peace and stability. -Anna Lindh

We need new partnerships for peace and security. -Anna Lindh

We need new partnerships in fighting terrorism and building peace. -Anna Lindh

The change began in Somalia, where we discovered that we were involved in an operation where there was no peace, so there was no more a peacekeeping operation because there was no peace. -Boutros Boutros-Ghali

The fact that you had disruptions in the peace process was not only in Rwanda. We had the same problem in Cambodia, we had the same problem in Mozambique, we had the same problem in Salvador. -Boutros Boutros-Ghali

We got involved in the Rwanda peace process for the simple reason that there was a decision which was taken by the Security Council, because the troops were in Uganda, and we decided to have a military presence. -Boutros Boutros-Ghali

We want to live at any price; so we cannot burden ourselves with feelings which, though they might be ornamental enough in peace-time, would be out of place here. -Erich Maria Remarque

At that time, the army leadership said the implementation of this agreement would allow everyone, including the IRA, to take its political objectives forward by peaceful and democratic means. -Gerry Adams

But if republicans are to prevail, if the peace process is to be successfully concluded and Irish sovereignty and re-unification secured, then we have to set the agenda – no-one else is going to do that. -Gerry Adams

Sinn Fein has demonstrated the ability to play a leadership role as part of a popular movement towards peace, equality and justice. -Gerry Adams

Maybe it's like becoming one with the cigar. You lose yourself in it; everything fades away: your worries, your problems, your thoughts. They fade into the smoke, and the cigar and you are at peace. -Raul Julia

Rwanda was considered a second-class operation; because it was a small country, we had been able to maintain a kind of status quo. They were negotiating, they'd accepted the new peace project, so we were under the impression that everything would be solved easily. -Boutros Boutros-Ghali

I never will have peace of mind. I'm not constructed that way. Some things in life can be horrible. -Julie Christie

If I ever went, I'd want to go peacefully in my sleep. I wouldn't want to plan my own death. -Dustin Diamond

Our civilization is now in the transition stage between the age of warring empires and a new age of world unity and peace. -John Boyd Orr

The Japanese chose the principle of eternal peace as the basis of morality for our rebirth after the War. -Kenzaburo Oe

I find myself more at peace when I live in Europe. -Norman Granz

The vast majority of Muslims living here are peaceful citizens. Unfortunately, however, we also see religious and political fanaticism among Muslim groups in Germany. -Otto Schily

I was surrounded by nature and trying to come to terms with this blissful nature versus the inhumane mentality of war. People were being deluded by someone using the word peace. -Thurston Moore

Israel is no longer a people that dwells alone, and has to join the global journey toward peace, reconciliation and international cooperation. -Yitzhak Rabin

There can be no peace in the world so long as a large proportion of the population lack the necessities of life and believe that a change of the political and economic system will make them available. World peace must be based on world plenty. -John Boyd Orr

In the recent years there have been criticisms levelled against Japan suggesting that she should offer more military forces to the United Nations forces and thereby play a more active role in the keeping and restoration of peace in various parts of the world. -Kenzaburo Oe

I enter negotiations with Chairman Arafat, the leader of the PLO, the representative of the Palestinian people, with the purpose to have coexistence between our two entities, Israel as a Jewish state and Palestinian state, entity, next to us, living in peace. -Yitzhak Rabin

I tried to keep it secret, but the story got into the newspapers. It was more difficult for my family, who couldn't understand why the media wouldn't leave me in peace. -Grete Waitz

It is not uncommon in modern times to see governments straining every nerve to keep the peace, and the people whom they represent, with patriotic enthusiasm and resentment over real or fancied wrongs, urging them forward to war. -Elihu Root

It is to be observed that every case of war averted is a gain in general, for it helps to form a habit of peace, and community habits long continued become standards of conduct. -Elihu Root

Nobody knows through how many thousands of years fighting men have made a place for themselves while the weak and peaceable have gone to the wall. -Elihu Root

Nothing is more important in the preservation of peace than to secure among the great mass of the people living under constitutional government a just conception of the rights which their nation has against others and of the duties their nation owes to others. -Elihu Root

The limitation upon this mode of promoting peace lies in the fact that it consists in an appeal to the civilized side of man, while war is the product of forces proceeding from man's original savage nature. -Elihu Root

The mere assemblage of peace loving people to interchange convincing reasons for their common faith, mere exhortation and argument to the public in favor of peace in general fall short of the mark. -Elihu Root

The methods of peace propaganda which aim at establishing peace doctrine by argument and by creating a feeling favorable to peace in general seem to fall short of reaching the springs of human action and of dealing with the causes of the conduct which they seek to modify. -Elihu Root

The point of departure of the process to which we wish to contribute is the fact that war is the natural reaction of human nature in the savage state, while peace is the result of acquired characteristics. -Elihu Root

There is so much of good in human nature that men grow to like each other upon better acquaintance, and this points to another way in which we may strive to promote the peace of the world. -Elihu Root

A sign that a peace association is going adrift is its exclusion of other political parties, with whom it could collaborate effectively on most of the problems besetting the cause of peace. -Fredrik Bajer

But I feel convinced, and I venture even to prophesy in this regard, that the time will come when there will also be a minister of peace in the cabinet, seated beside the ministers of war. -Fredrik Bajer

On the other hand, the waging of peace as a science, as an art, is in its infancy. But we can trace its growth, its steady progress, and the time will come when there will be particular individuals designated to assume responsibility for and leadership of this movement. -Fredrik Bajer

Indeed; peace literature is almost exclusively read, though to good effect, by pacifists, while what is needed is the canvassing of those who have not so far been won to the cause. -Fredrik Bajer

There are those who believe we have need of more literature, of a large international publishing house, of a great peace newspaper, or the like. I am rather skeptical about this idea. -Fredrik Bajer

There is one criticism which cannot be leveled at interparliamentary conferences but which is applicable to a great extent to peace congresses: the meetings waste time. -Fredrik Bajer

Waging war we understand, but not waging peace, or at any rate less consciously so. -Fredrik Bajer

That is why if Lebanon concludes a peace agreement with Israel and brings that accord to the Parliament our deputies will reject it; Hezbollah refuses any conciliation with Israel in principle. -Hassan Nasrallah

When a peace agreement is concluded between the Lebanese government and Israel, we would surely disagree with the Lebanese government about that, but we would not make any turmoil out of it. -Hassan Nasrallah

If you are kept in ignorance of the true way and permit yourself to rely upon and be guided by the opinion of imperfect man, you can never gain the riches that will bring you peace and lasting happiness. -Joseph Franklin Rutherford

Chemistry itself knows altogether too well that – given the real fear that the scarcity of global resources and energy might threaten the unity of mankind – chemistry is in a position to make a contribution towards securing a true peace on earth. -Kenichi Fukui

Peace secured by slavish submission is not peace. -Kim Il-sung

From 1918 on, trade unionists were to express from the platforms of their congresses the workers' desire for peace through a rational organization of the world. -Leon Jouhaux

I would not go so far as to say that the French trade unions attached greater importance to the struggle for peace than the others did; but they certainly seemed to take it more to heart. -Leon Jouhaux

True enough, nature has endowed me with a fair measure of patience and composure, yet I should be lying if I told you that, having seen the reporter off on his way to make his deadline, I fell peacefully asleep. -Leon Jouhaux

I rejected the armed struggle because, as a Christian, I am committed to a nonviolent and peaceful struggle. But people take their own initiatives, because it is a Lebanon type of situation here. -Mangosuthu Buthelezi

But the deep desire for peace remained with the American people. -Paul Robeson

I know that if the peace movement takes its message boldly to the Negro people a powerful force can be secured in pursuit of the greatest goal of all mankind. And the same is true of labor and the great democratic sections of our population. -Paul Robeson

I said it was my feeling that the American people would struggle for peace, and that has since been underscored by the President of these United States. -Paul Robeson

In fact, because of this deep desire for peace, the ruling class leaders of this land, from 1945 on, stepped up the hysteria and propaganda to drive into American minds the false notion that danger threatened them from the East. -Paul Robeson

Like any other people, like fathers, mothers, sons and daughters in every land, when the issue of peace or war has been put squarely to the American people, they have registered for peace. -Paul Robeson

Through the years I have received my share of recognition for efforts in the fields of sports, the arts, the struggle for full citizenship for the Negro people, labor's rights and the fight for peace. -Paul Robeson

We must join with the tens of millions all over the world who see in peace our most sacred responsibility. -Paul Robeson

Yes, peace can and must be won, to save the world from the terrible destruction of World War III. -Paul Robeson

As a privileged survivor of the First World War, I hope I may be allowed to interject here a deeply felt tribute to those who were not fortunate enough to succeed, but who shared the signal honor of trying to the last to salvage peace. -Rene Cassin

You who live your lives in cities or among peaceful ways cannot always tell whether your friends are the kind who would go through fire for you. But on the Plains one's friends have an opportunity to prove their mettle. -Buffalo Bill

All of us deserve a greater peace of mind, knowing that our children are better protected wherever they are. -Bob Ney

To realize peace on the Korean peninsula, and to develop exchange, cooperation between both Koreas, they are the, you know, immediate target of our government. -Kim Dae Jung

The rapprochement of peoples is only possible when differences of culture and outlook are respected and appreciated rather than feared and condemned, when the common bond of human dignity is recognized as the essential bond for a peaceful world. -J. William Fulbright

I feel beautiful when I'm at peace with myself. When I'm serene, when I'm a good person, when I've been considerate of others. -Elle Macpherson

But I do know focusing on the exterior doesn't make me happy. If I want peace and serenity, it won't be reached by getting thinner or fatter. -Elle Macpherson

As the war on terror continues, Americans must honor the brave men and women who gave their lives for the protection of this nation and the hope of peace. -Dan Lipinski

I think it's great that we have organisations like Greenpeace. In a pluralistic society, we want to have people who point out all the problems that the Earth could encounter. But we need to understand that they are not presenting a full and rounded view. -Bjorn Lomborg

The attacks in Jordan, just like those before it in Indonesia, Egypt, Spain and the United States, demonstrate that terrorism does not discriminate by race, ethnicity or region. Instead, terrorists indiscriminately target those seeking to live a peaceful, loving and free life. -Allyson Schwartz

The Paris peace talks kept a roof over my head and food on the table and clothes on my back because if something was said going in or coming out, I had the rent for the month. -Ed Bradley

Our political machine, composed of thirteen independent sovereignties, have been perpetually operating against each other and against the federal head ever since the peace. -Henry Knox

In a multi-racial society, trust, understanding and tolerance are the cornerstones of peace and order. -Kamisese Mara

Music is a fantastic peacekeeper of the world, it is integral to harmony, and it is a required fundamental of human emotion. -Xun Kuang

Today's global landscape is increasingly interconnected. China and the Middle East play critical roles towards international peace and security. -Rick Larsen

In fact, effective solidarity with the poor, both individual persons and entire nations, is indispensable for the construction of peace. -Claudio Hummes

In particular, the efforts to reestablish peace after the World War have been directed toward the formation of states and the regulation of their frontiers according to a consciously national program. -Christian Lous Lange

The U.S. cannot force Sunnis, Shias, and Kurds to make peace or to act for the common good. They have been in conflict for 1,400 years. -Peter DeFazio

We have learned that peace and well-being are indivisible and that our peace and well-being cannot be purchased at the price of peace or the well-being of any other country. -James F. Byrnes

I hope that the German people will never again make the mistake of believing that because the American people are peace-loving, they will sit back hoping for peace if any nation uses force or the threat of force to acquire dominion over other peoples and other governments. -James F. Byrnes

The American people want peace. They have long since ceased to talk of a hard or a soft peace for Germany. -James F. Byrnes

What we want is a lasting peace. We will oppose soft measures which invite the breaking of the peace. -James F. Byrnes

Freedom from militarism will give the German people the opportunity, if they will but seize it, to apply their great energies and abilities to the works of peace. -James F. Byrnes

It will give them the opportunity to show themselves worthy of the respect and friendship of peace-loving nations, and in time, to take an honorable place among members of the United Nations. -James F. Byrnes

It is not in the interest of the German people or in the interest of world peace that Germany should become a pawn or a partner in a military struggle for power between the East and the West. -James F. Byrnes

The conditions which now exist in Germany make it impossible for industrial production to reach the levels which the occupying powers agreed were essential for a minimum German peacetime economy. -James F. Byrnes

I want just to be happy and peaceful. And that's not always the case when you're married. -Olivier Martinez

The Nobel Prize is an honor unique in the world in having found its way into the hearts and minds of simple people everywhere. It casts a light of peace and reason upon us all; and for that I am especially grateful. -George Wald

A peacetime draft is the most un-American thing I know. -George Wald

Few are there that will leave the secure seclusion of the scholar's life, the peaceful walks of literature and learning, to stand out a target for the criticism of unkind and hostile minds. -Felix Adler

I know that. I'm having a ball. I'm not slap happy. I'm just filled up with joy and with peace and with all kinds of things that have eluded me for quite a few years. And they're back and they're thriving. -Liza Minnelli

The United States and Israel have a unique relationship based on our mutual commitment to democracy, freedom, and peace. Therefore, just as our commitment to these principles must be steadfast, so must our support for Israel. -John Boehner

The aggressive, unprovoked acts of violence against Israel by Hezbollah and Hamas are revealing. It is clear they don't want peace, but rather seek the ultimate destruction of Israel. -John Boehner

In view of China's growing military strength and intentions, the best way to safeguard Asia's permanent peace and prosperity is to have all Asian countries join forces with other democratic countries in the world to form a global community of democracies. -Jim Costa

On even the worst days, when nothing was working at the lab, I knew that at home I would find warmth, peace, companionship, and encouragement. As a consequence, the next day would surely be better. -James Cronin

As they say, one thing led to another, and, ultimately, the British and Irish governments asked me to serve as chairman of the peace negotiations, which ironically began six years ago this week. -George J. Mitchell

And we ought to work our diplomacy first and I think it's a reason it's going to respond increasingly to our diplomacy particularly with the president's direct involvement in the peace process, and I think that's extraordinarily important. -Frank Carlucci

I was opposed to World War II, and indeed on June 22, 1941 when Hitler invaded the Soviet Union I suddenly found myself the lone supporter of peace since everybody else had, because of their communist beliefs, shifted over to become supporters of the war. -Douglass North

We must make every effort to neutralize this threat peacefully, but be ever mindful of the growing danger Iran poses not just to a safe and free America, but to our allies abroad. -Dave Reichert

I believe that everyone can appreciate the right of a family to grieve the loss of a loved one in peace, regardless of anyone's position on the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. -Dave Reichert

But I do like to have peace and quiet for a good hour. -Bryan Ferry

We should be therefore supporting a larger Europe, and in so doing we should strive to expand the zone of peace and prosperity in the world which is the necessary foundation for a stable international system in which our leadership could be fruitfully exercised. -Zbigniew Brzezinski

To increase the zone of peace is to build the inner core of a stable international zone. -Zbigniew Brzezinski

But if Russia is to be part of this larger zone of peace it cannot bring into it its imperial baggage. It cannot bring into it a policy of genocide against the Chechens, and cannot kill journalists, and it cannot repress the mass media. -Zbigniew Brzezinski

The experts who managed the original Marshall Plan say Afghanistan needs a commitment of at least $5 to $10 billion over 5 to 10 years, coupled with occupation forces of 250,000 Allied soldiers to keep the peace throughout the country. -Ted Rall

We who go out to die shall be remembered, because we gave the world peace. That will be our reward, though we will know nothing of it, but lie rotting in the earth – dead. -Philip Gibbs

I am going to fight – I, a socialist and Syndicalist – so that we shall make an end to war, so that the little ones of France will sleep in peace, and the women go without fear. -Philip Gibbs

But now Americans, they felt a sense of peace and protection because they've been separated by so many thousands of miles of ocean. And you know, the fact that it's come to the U.S. like this is so sad, and yet you know, what can you do? It's here. -Patty Hearst

For three years now, our brave men and women in uniform have done everything their country has asked of them, yet President Bush still does not have a plan to win the peace in Iraq and bring our troops home. -Marty Meehan

I do know that some Buddhists are able to attain peace of mind. -Martin Scorsese

Finally, people are starting to recognize freedom and peace do have a cause, they do have a price. -Mark Foley

The stability and peace which seemed to be so firmly established by the brilliant monarchy of Francis I vanished with the terrible outbreak of the Wars of Religion. -Lytton Strachey

The old interests of aristocracy – the romance of action, the exalted passions of chivalry and war – faded into the background, and their place was taken by the refined and intimate pursuits of peace and civilization. -Lytton Strachey

Most people go, I wish for world peace. But chaos has a place in balancing out the light and the dark in the world. I don't know if I would wish for world peace. -Brendan Fraser

All my work is much more peaceful than I am. -Maya Lin

Winning the peace is harder than winning the war. -Xavier Becerra

You cannot make peace with terrorists. The normal dividing lines between war and peace do not apply. -Ulrich Beck

How will decent people in the region ever believe in peace if Arab terrorists interpret every gesture of peace as a display of weakness and then act accordingly? -Tom Lantos

A stable Iraq at peace with its neighbors will remain elusive until we improve both the security and the economic environment in Iraq. -Tom Lantos

The Peace Corps is an outstanding organization that promotes peace through helping countless individuals who want to help build a better life for the community in which they serve. -Solomon Ortiz

None of us condone terrorism in any way, shape, or form, and I believe Hezbollah is a terrorist organization that was, is, and remains a threat to peace in the Mideast, and must be dismantled and disarmed. -John Conyers

Since creation of the E.U. a half century ago, Europe has enjoyed the longest period of peace in its history. -John Bruton

There cannot be peaceful coexistence in the ideological realm. Peaceful coexistence corrupts. -Jiang Qing

Now God be praised, I will die in peace. -James Wolfe

The Vietnamese people deeply love independence, freedom and peace. But in the face of United States aggression they have risen up, united as one man. -Ho Chi Minh

The quiet rhythmic monotone of the wall of logs fills one with the rustic peace of a secluded nook in the woods. -Gustav Stickley

Within a few weeks the organization for the maintenance of international peace and security, established by the San Francisco Charter, will be formally launched through the convocation of the first General Assembly of the United Nations. -Cordell Hull

Under the ominous shadow which the second World War and its attendant circumstances have cast on the world, peace has become as essential to civilized existence as the air we breathe is to life itself. -Cordell Hull

There is no greater responsibility resting upon peoples and governments everywhere than to make sure that enduring peace will this time – at long last – be established and maintained. -Cordell Hull

That feeds anger, and I mean when we went and at last thank heavens got towards peace in Northern Ireland we went for justice within Northern Ireland as well as using security well, as well as a political settlement, but surely that is the lesson. -Clare Short

The European Union is the world's most successful invention for advancing peace. -John Bruton

Fortunately, the war has brought with it not alone a stark realization of what another war would mean to the world, but as well the creation of an international agency through which the nations of the world can, if they so desire, make peace a living reality. -Cordell Hull

The Canadians have managed to live peacefully with their Indians. It is disgrace that the United States has not done the same. -Stephen Ambrose

I believe President Bush is one of the most dangerous leaders in the world. He is not in search of peaceful and diplomatic solutions. -Bianca Jagger

Smoke the pipe of peace, bury the tomahawk, and become one nation. -Zebulon Pike

It was the wish of the Americans that their red brethren should remain peacefully round their own fires, and not embroil themselves in any disputes between the white people. -Zebulon Pike

We want to see Israel withdraw from our territory. But we don't want to be accountable vis-a-vis Israel on the security basis, because we don't see, in the absence of a peace agreement, that Lebanon can really be accountable to Israel if anything happens. -Rafik Hariri

On the other hand, we have in Israel, an Israeli government which has been elected by the Israeli people. Their political agenda is not for peace. They are from the camp anti-peace. -Rafik Hariri

Such an arrangement would provide Taiwan and China with a forum for dialogue whereby they may forge closer ties based on mutual understanding and respect, leading to permanent peace in the Taiwan Strait. -Nick Lampson

From 7 in the morning to 11 at night, I was reading. I don't think one can find any other time in one's life to be left alone so much to read in peace like that. -Mohsen Makhmalbaf

It is a grave matter to enter a war, without adequate military preparation; it may prove fatal to come into peace, without moral and religious preparation. -Louis Finkelstein

I am proud to represent these men and women who empower people in developing nations and promote the Peace Corps mission of peace and friendship. These volunteers are making major strides to improve the lives of people and communities around the world. -Kenny Marchant

The IRA has abandoned its armed struggle in pursuit of its goals by political means. This must be fully acknowledged. Continued challenge does nothing but obstruct and inhibit the peace process. -James T. Walsh

As a civil rights leader, Mrs. King's vision of racial peace and nonviolent social change was a fortifying staple in advancing the civil rights movement. -James T. Walsh

I also hear your president say that war is the means of last resort and I think he means that. I met him last autumn and he assured me that they wanted to come through and disarm Iraq by peaceful means, and that's what we are trying to do as hard as we can. -Hans Blix
