Ed Koch will never 'rest in peace.' That was not his way. He was always nervously squirming, while making others squirm as well. Comfort was not his goal. He understood that to be a proud and assertive Jew meant never being able to leave a sigh of relief and say, 'It's over, we are at peace, we can now put down our guard and relax.' Alan Dershowitz
By the time the United States went to war with Afghanistan in the fall of 2001, I had made three trips to the country. I covered the fall of the Taliban in Kandahar and have been returning routinely for the past 14 years. Lynsey Addario

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

I'm not aiming for the Nobel Peace Prize! Omar Bongo
I've stopped war reporting. I realized that I'd answered all of my questions about war and about myself. Sebastian Junger
Religion often is misused for purely power-political goals, including war. Hans Kung

The Vietnam War was happening, but Lubbock was... They put a pinch on it. Bob Livingston
European nations began World War I with a glamorous vision of war, only to be psychologically shattered by the realities of the trenches. The experience changed the way people referred to the glamour of battle; they treated it no longer as a positive quality but as a dangerous illusion. Virginia Postrel
Many Europeans are concerned that stronger sanctions are a slippery slope toward war unless the U.S. is at the table. Dennis Ross
In my teens, I joined the Parachute Regiment. I jumped out of lots of airplanes, as much as the Government budget would allow us to. I did two active tours of duty: Northern Ireland, and then the Falklands war. Mark Burnett
Playing on the streets of Iraq, or in Israel or the Gaza strip, I'd sing angry protest songs against war. People would say, 'Make us clap, make us dance, and laugh and sing.' It really made me think about the importance of happy music. Michael Franti
I think war is so incredibly backward, and I don't think it's intelligent, and it's not sane. So why would you want to support it? Alice Walker
It is important to recognize the differences between the war in Iraq and the war on terrorism. The treatment of those detained at Abu Ghraib is governed by the Geneva Conventions, which have been signed by both the U.S. and Iraq. John Yoo
I can promise you that women working together - linked, informed and educated - can bring peace and prosperity to this forsaken planet. Isabel Allende
I believe we could see a North American Union formed. Why else are our borders with Mexico and Canada being left wide open some six years into a War on Terror? George Noory

I would not plan to base my campaign primarily on opposition to the war in the Persian Gulf. George McGovern

God employs several translators; some pieces are translated by age, some by sickness, some by war, some by justice. John Donne

Michael Ignatieff
Let's be clear: Neither Secretary Powell or I opposed the notion of removing Saddam Hussein by force, but we wanted to avoid the war if we could. But if we couldn't, the notion of removing Saddam Hussein from the scene seemed eminently sensible, given that you had, what, 16 or so U.N. Security Council resolutions basically saying the same thing. Richard Armitage
We are not seeking... and looking for war with any nations. We are seeking peace and stability among all the nations in the region. Hassan Rouhani

I don't think journalists in World War II were objective about the Nazis, and I don't think they should have been. Sebastian Junger

We have been travelling through a cloud. The sky has been dark ever since the war began. Black Kettle
For a long time, it was believed that war was waged by armies which could not be identified with the nation itself. Professional soldiers took upon themselves the job of defending national interests, and it was understood that the war affected only them; the country itself went on living and working. Ferdinand Buisson
My attitude to peace is rather based on the Burmese definition of peace - it really means removing all the negative factors that destroy peace in this world. So peace does not mean just putting an end to violence or to war, but to all other factors that threaten peace, such as discrimination, such as inequality, poverty. Aung San Suu Kyi
When we have done our best, we should wait the result in peace. John Lubbock
It just seems to me that the world's kind of a mess, and the more messy it gets, the more interested I am in escapist fare. Having a good time is something that isn't about the war in Iraq or the Asian flu or the Kyoto protocol - things that are horribly depressing to consider in our real lives. I'm eager to get away from them. Eric Stoltz
I'm obsessed with my PlayStation. I'll come home and plug away at 'Fallout' for a couple of hours. Or, if I'm feeling the hacking and slashing, I'll play a little 'God of War.' Tracy Spiridakos
That a man be willing, when others are so too, as far forth as for peace and defence of himself he shall think it necessary, to lay down this right to all things; and be contented with so much liberty against other men, as he would allow other men against himself. Thomas Hood
It is wrong to try to avoid the struggle against imperialism under the pretext that independence and revolution are important, but that peace is still more precious. Kim Il-sung
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
No one ever said that fighting the war against terrorism and defending our homeland would be easy. So let's support our troops, law enforcement workers, and our mission to keep our nation and our children safe in the days and years to come. Judy Biggert
A crust eaten in peace is better than a banquet partaken in anxiety. Aesop
The need for a non-veteran reserve became painfully obvious in the Korean war when many of the men who were being called to serve were World War II veterans participating in Ready Reserve units. J. Anthony Lukas

We have invented a new human right here - the right to return home after a war. Paddy Ashdown
The utterly fallacious idea at the heart of the pro-war argument is that it is the duty of the anti-war argument to provide an alternative to war. The onus is on them to explain just cause. Zadie Smith
I knew I wanted to write on religious themes when I was a GI in World War II. I saw and experienced so much violence that I thought I could express my outrage best with music. Dave Brubeck
Industry has operated against the artisan in favor of the idler, and also in favor of capital and against labor. Any mechanical invention whatsoever has been more harmful to humanity than a century of war. Remy de Gourmont
I am an armor officer. I grew up as a part of the team that helped to field M-1s and M-60-A3s to the army back in 1980s. It's still a magnificent tank, and we designed it for the Cold War and Central Europe. Eric Shinseki
All we are saying is give peace a chance. John Lennon
Operation Peace for Galilee is not a military operation resulting from the lack of an alternative. Menachem Begin
I remember being a kid and the Vietnam War was huge and looking at Watergate. David Cross
War, in our country, ought never to be resorted to but when it is clearly justifiable and necessary; so much so as not to require the aid of logic to convince our understanding nor the ardour of eloquence to inflame our passions. There are many reasons why this country should never resort to it but for causes the most urgent and necessary. John C. Calhoun
I want to fight and win the war on cancer. Jason Chaffetz
There's nothing glorious about war. There's nothing glorious about holding your friends in your arms and watching them die. There's nothing glorious about having to leave your home for 6 to 8 months while your family's back here and you're away. Marcus Luttrell
Everything, everything in war is barbaric... But the worst barbarity of war is that it forces men collectively to commit acts against which individually they would revolt with their whole being. Ellen Key
I pray daily... for peace. Paul O'Neill
Every administration has this idea to talk tough to Israel and make nice to the Arabs and the Palestinians, and that's the way to bring about peace. It's counter-productive - it's actually the opposite. Charles E. Schumer

If some peoples pretend that history or geography gives them the right to subjugate other races, nations, or peoples, there can be no peace. Ludwig von Mises

All the gods are dead except the god of war. Eldridge Cleaver
In Germany I have been acknowledged again since the fall of Hitler, but my works, partly suppressed by the Nazis and partly destroyed by the war; have not yet been republished there. Herman Hesse
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
To be sure, Kennedy did not discount the importance of words in rallying the nation to meet its foreign and domestic challenges. Winston Churchill's powerful exhortations during World War II set a standard he had long admired. Kennedy was hardly unmindful of how important a great inaugural address could be. Robert Dallek
And, gentlemen, they have not yet done so, and it is quite clear that no Americans, no people in the world probably, are going to war with the Soviet Union. Paul Robeson
It's very alarming to see what's happening in the Muslim world. And it's about time we come to our senses and realize that moderation is the only path that will ensure peace and stability for the Muslim world, and for the wider world. Najib Razak
I grew up in a time when people believed in duty, honor and country. My grandfathers were both officers. My father was a General in the Air Force. My brother and I were both in the Army. I've always felt a kinship with soldiers; I think it's possible to support the warrior and be against the war. Kris Kristofferson
When I was a youngster growing up in South Dakota, we never referred to the national debt, it was always referred to as the war debt because it stemmed from World War I. George McGovern
Many young men in the 1960s and 1970s came to reject some of the traditional ideas about manhood that many of their fathers tried to pass down - like unquestioning respect for authority even when that might mean killing and dying for questionable or unjust causes such as the Vietnam War. Jackson Katz
I follow the teachings of Major General Smedley Darlington Butler, United States Marine Corps. He won two Congressional Medals of Honor, and he wrote the highly controversial antiwar book 'War is a Racket.' Jesse Ventura
The War on Drugs employs millions - politicians, bureaucrats, policemen, and now the military - that probably couldn't find a place for their dubious talents in a free market, unless they were to sell pencils from a tin cup on street corners. L. Neil Smith
Someday when peace has returned to this odd world I want to come to London again and stand on a certain balcony on a moonlit night and look down upon the peaceful silver curve of the Thames with its dark bridges. Ernie Pyle
The war on terrorism has made national security a legitimate concern, and a rising deficit, changes brought on by globalization and even the price of oil have thrown the nation's economic health into question. Roger Mahony
In 2009, Hamas was relatively new to power. It had won elections just three years earlier and was flexing its newfound strength via a war with its old enemy, Israel, which it officially wants destroyed. Richard Engel
It was the same in World War I, when Woodrow Wilson, also a tool of the Jews, maneuvered it into the war. Julius Streicher
He wants only to rest and to have a little peace. Luciano Pavarotti
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
I'm trying to make sense of lot of things with 'Tyrannosaur.' I'm trying to make sense of people who've left now. They're not here, they can't answer for themselves any more, they're gone. And I'm trying to make peace with those ghosts. Paddy Considine
We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves. Dalai Lama
I love painting and music, of course. I don't know nearly as much about them as I know about poetry. I've certainly been influenced by fiction. I was overwhelmed by War and Peace when I read it, and I didn't read it until I was in my late 20s. Kenneth Koch
When I first went to places where people were suffering from war and persecution, I felt ashamed of my feelings of sadness. I could see more possibilities in my life. Angelina Jolie
Whenever I speak at the United Nations, UNICEF or elsewhere to raise awareness of the continual and rampant recruitment of children in wars around the world, I come to realize that I still do not fully understand how I could have possibly survived the civil war in my country, Sierra Leone. Ishmael Beah
I had amazing intellectual privilege as a kid. My mom taught me to read when I was two or three. When I was five, I read and wrote well enough to do my nine-year older brother's homework in exchange for chocolate or cigarettes. By the time I was 10, I was reading Orwell, Tolstoy's 'War and Peace,' and the Koran. I was reading comic books, too. Chris Abani
The high point of civilization is that you can hate me and I can hate you but we develop an etiquette that allows us to deal with each other because if we acted solely upon our impulse we'd probably go to war. Stanley Crouch
The war against terrorism is terrorism. Woody Harrelson
In general, states do not count on pledges of 'no more war' from their neighbors. Israel's army never counted on it from Egypt, for example. Barton Gellman
My dad was a big admirer of Sergeant York stories from the First World War. Clint Eastwood
Peace is a fragile thing. It takes courage to secure it. It takes wisdom to maintain it. Jenny Shipley

The resolution has made a real threat of war go away and opens the way for further work in the interests of a political- diplomatic settlement of the situation around Iraq. Igor Ivanov

All we ask is that we have peace with the whites. We want to hold you by the hand. You are our father. Black Kettle
When we go to war I will not ask the White Racist next to me what is he Christian or Atheist? I will only expect him or her to kill the enemy as I will. Tom Metzger

I will not play tug o' war. I'd rather play hug o' war. Where everyone hugs instead of tugs, Where everyone giggles and rolls on the rug, Where everyone kisses, and everyone grins, and everyone cuddles, and everyone wins. Shel Silverstein
'The Underland Chronicles' is an unnecessary war for a very long time until it becomes a necessary war, because there have been all these points where people could have gotten off the train but they didn't; they just kept moving the violence forward until it's gone out of control. Suzanne Collins
War is just a racket... I believe in adequate defense at the coastline and nothing else. Smedley Butler
I hope to stay unemployed as a war photographer till the end of my life. Robert Capa

I was a lieutenant in World War II. John Eisenhower

It would be immoral to walk away from the consequences of our actions, leaving behind anarchy and civil war in Iraq. Kenneth Clarke
'The Haunted Man' is about communication barriers between men and women, and in that song it's a woman's wait for her husband to come back from war. The vision for me was of a group of men and women on the opposite sides of two cliffs, trying to move or sing to each other and communicate, but they're kind of misfiring. Bat for Lashes
Peace in the world starts with peace in oneself. If everyone lives mindfully, everyone will be more healthy, feel more fulfilled in their daily lives and there will be more peace. Nhat Hanh
As I've said, there were patriots who supported this war, and patriots who opposed it. And all of us are united in appreciation for our servicemen and women, and our hopes for Iraqis' future. Barack Obama
There was a belief after World War I that painting could be an act of civil revolt. I want this exhibition, 'New Museum,' to be an act of civil disobedience. It's not so much about the New Museum on the Bowery, but the idea of challenging museums as projections of cultural authority. It's painting as insurgency. Richard Phillips
I was told my son was killed in the war on terror. He was killed by George Bush's war of terror on the world. Cindy Sheehan
I went over to the Charlestown Navy Yard yesterday and saw some big men of war, one over 100 guns. John D. Long

Herbert A. Simon
Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable. John F. Kennedy
I made a French film called 'Merry Christmas' which is a very European film. It's a World War I piece. Diane Kruger

The best power of all is to be free, but Obama is not a free person. He is a prisoner of a military system. He talked about closing Guantanamo and ending the war in Iraq. Now he's taken on another war. What's happening? Adolfo Perez Esquivel
We've got to keep an eye on the battle that we face - a war on workers. And you see it everywhere. It is the Tea Party. And there's only one way to beat and win that war - the one thing about working people is, we like a good fight. James P. Hoffa
Americans are blessed with great plenty; we are a generous people and we have a moral obligation to assist those who are suffering from poverty, disease, war and famine. Adam Schiff

I like war. Chris Kyle
I believe that the war on drugs is a tragically misplaced use of resources - an immoral venture that produces far more suffering than it alleviates. David Harsanyi
Battle is the most magnificent competition in which a human being can indulge. It brings out all that is best; it removes all that is base. All men are afraid in battle. The coward is the one who lets his fear overcome his sense of duty. Duty is the essence of manhood. George S. Patton
Our ideal is to make her ever stronger and better and finer, because in that way alone, as we believe, can she be of the greatest service to the world's peace and to the welfare of mankind. Henry Cabot Lodge
Radiohead and Our Lady Peace are doing the seven layers of guitar, and I kind of jumped on that before anyone else did. Billy Corgan

As a human being, I'm concerned about the world that I live in. So, I'm concerned about peace. I'm concerned about - about man's inhumanity to man. I'm concerned about the environment. Herbie Hancock
What the American people want to do is fight a war without getting hurt. You can't do that any more than you can get into a barroom fight without getting hurt... Unless the American people are willing to send their sons out to fight an aggressor, there just isn't going to be any United States. Chesty Puller
The war in Afghanistan is too important to be reduced to a political football. We are fighting there to protect our national security. We are confronting the Taliban-led insurgency to prevent terrorists returning to that country. Bob Ainsworth
Much as Cold War nuclear strategists could argue about winning a nuclear war by having more survivors, advocates of a Global Warming War might see the United States, Western Europe, or Russia as better able to ride out climate disruption and manipulation than, say, China or the countries of the Middle East. Jamais Cascio
War in men's eyes shall be A monster of iniquity In the good time coming. Nations shall not quarrel then, To prove which is the stronger; Nor slaughter men for glory's sake; - Wait a little longer. Charles Mackay
If you've got a camera, go to a war zone and tell a story. Rhys Ifans
As an artist I come to sing, but as a citizen, I will always speak for peace, and no one can silence me in this. Paul Robeson
In my final year at Bristol University, I wrote a play called 'White Feathers.' It was produced in the studio theatre at the students' union in early 1999, when I was 21. It's 100 pages long: a very traditional play, with an interval, about deserters in the First World War. Laura Wade
Everybody fears the unknown. But I have a strong feeling there's something bigger than us. I don't think all this exists because some rocks happened to collide. I'm at peace. When it comes, I'll be fine, calm. I'll miss life, though. Especially my family. Roger Ailes
I became a war hero before going on to critical acclaim as a professional victim. Dave Pelzer
You have to remember that although Gandhi and Churchill only met physically once, their paths crossed again and crossed again all over the globe, from London and South Africa and India and back to London. In fact, I discovered that during the Boer War in 1899 they literally passed yards from each other on the battlefield. Arthur L. Herman
If war is the solution, why didn't Roosevelt declare war on poverty? Preston Sturges
Historically, war journalists have embedded themselves with one side, which means the greatest threat comes from the clearly delineated enemy of that side. Alan Huffman
Even the holy men who lived before the coming of Christ understood that God had in mind plans of peace for the human race. Saint Bernard
I say at this point, for different reasons, Bush and Hussein are both very threatening to world peace and to deny that is to be incredibly naive. Janeane Garofalo
I say peace begins on your plate. Jane Velez-Mitchell
After the Meiji restoration in 1868, Japan adopted an expansionist and colonial attitude towards its neighbours. It sought to identify itself with the West and looked down upon the Asian continent as backward and inferior. For most of the next 70 years, Japan was at war, mainly with its neighbours. Martin Jacques
Dear Lord; we beg but one boon more: Peace in the hearts of all men living, peace in the whole world this Thanksgiving. Joseph Auslander
I was born in Russia in 1901 of Jewish parents and came to the United States in 1922 to join my father, who left Russia for the United States before World War I. Simon Kuznets
I think what the Nobel committee is doing is going beyond war and looking at what humanity can do to prevent war. Sustainable management of our natural resources will promote peace. Wangari Maathai
The war in Iraq, clearly has not turned out in the way that was hoped. William Hague
We know that peace is only possible when it is the fruit of justice. True peace is a profound transformation by means of the force of nonviolence that is the power of love. Adolfo Perez Esquivel
We are constantly trying to cope with what our fathers or our grandfathers did. I wrote the book 'Great War of Civilization,' and my father was a solider in the First World War which produced the current Middle East - not that he had much to do with that - but he fought in what he believed was the Great War for Civilization. Robert Fisk
My heritage has been my grounding, and it has brought me peace. Maureen O'Hara
Christmas is joy, religious joy, an inner joy of light and peace. Pope Francis I
Laws are silent in time of war. Marcus Tulliuis Cicero
I have friends who have had PTSD, and you can get it from other things than war. Dito Montiel
The great leaders of the second world war alliance, Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill, understood the twin sides of destruction and salvation. Their war aims were not only to defeat fascism, but to create a world of shared prosperity. Jeffrey Sachs
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
As a Jew, I was taught that it was ethically imperative to speak up and to speak out against arbitrary state violence. That was part of what I learned when I learned about the Second World War and the concentration camps. Judith Butler
As in the war of 1941-45, our victory and our survival depend on how and where we attack. James Forrestal
The war against terrorism should not be used to interfere with an independent, sovereign state. We need to identify concrete terrorist targets and do no harm to civilians. Nong Duc Manh
Serious sport is war minus the shooting. George Orwell
Humans are very aggressive and scrappy, and go to war at the drop of a hat. However, a standard land war is no longer going to work as it is no longer technically possible. Bruce Sterling
Two subsequent incidents of import established CNN: the explosion of the space shuttle Challenger in 1986, which CNN was the only network to cover as it happened, and the 1991 Gulf War, which CNN chronicled round the clock from a proximity as irresistible as it was alarming, bomb blasts and gunfire lighting up TV screens from coast to coast. Steve Erickson
I've been to war, and it's not easy to kill. It's bloody and messy and totally horrifying, and the consequences are serious. Oliver Stone
We, Britain and Germany, can neither of us be happy about our handling of the Iraq war. Douglas Hurd
I'm just an old hippie. You know, peace and love. Sherman Hemsley
Eventually, I was sent to Wales and Germany, and after the war, to Paris. Lloyd Alexander
That was luck: I should not then have been a conscientious objector; but I am quite sure that the abominations of war would have made me one, as soon as I got to the front. Laurence Housman
My first professional acting job was in 'Hair' during the Vietnam War. So I think I've always been drawn to projects with a social conscience. Clarke Peters
We convinced him quickly that the possibility of war was absolutely nil and continued our festivity. On the next day we were ordered to take the field. Manfred von Richthofen
Poverty is the absence of all human rights. The frustrations, hostility and anger generated by abject poverty cannot sustain peace in any society. Muhammad Yunus
And I'm a slow writer: five, six hundred words is a good day. That's the reason it took me 20 years to write those million and a half words of the Civil War. Shelby Foote
I went to live in Barcelona in 1975, when I was twenty. Even before I went there, I knew more about the Spanish Civil War than I did about the Irish Civil War. I liked Barcelona, and then I grew to like a place in the Catalan Pyrenees called the Pillars, especially an area between the village of Flavors and the high mountains around it. Colm Toibin
I was born in the Second World War during the Nazi invasion of my country. Antonio Tabucchi
We can hope that men will understand that the interest of all are the same, that hope lies in cooperation. We can then perhaps keep PEACE. Alva Myrdal
Since the attack on the United States on September 11 2001, and the US retaliation in Afghanistan and Iraq, there must be few people who have not felt a twinge of nostalgia for the cold war. James Buchan
Democracies are indeed slow to make war, but once embarked upon a martial venture are equally slow to make peace and reluctant to make a tolerable, rather than a vindictive, peace. Reinhold Niebuhr
I do know that you have to choose between the logic of reconciliation and the logic of justice. Pure justice leads to new civil war. I prefer the negotiable revolution. Adam Michnik
I've been in Iraq, and it never occurred to me to go, 'Hey, this war is bogus,' to some guy who's 24 hours a day trying not to get shot at or blown up. Henry Rollins
The marketplace for books when I entered the business shortly after World War II consisted of a thousand or so well stocked independent booksellers in major towns and cities supplemented by thousands of smaller shops that carried limited stocks of mostly current titles along with greeting cards, toys and so on. Jason Epstein
To me, one of the best faces America has ever projected is the face of a Peace Corps volunteer. That face symbolizes this country: young, curious, brimming with idealism and hope - and a real, honest compassion. Teresa Heinz
In the middle of the nineteenth century, the United States embarked on a new relationship with death, entering into a civil war that proved bloodier than any other conflict in American history, a war that would presage the slaughter of World War I's Western Front and the global carnage of the twentieth century. Drew Gilpin Faust
No person, no place, and no thing has any power over us, for 'we' are the only thinkers in our mind. When we create peace and harmony and balance in our minds, we will find it in our lives. Louise L. Hay
My mother had a son from previous marriage and her husband died in Second World War. Mikhail Baryshnikov
If there are finer beings than German short hairs, I don't know what they are. In their eyes is peace. Ben Stein
I do not feel remorse. Everybody makes mistakes in war. Abu Abbas
This country has a proud history of opening its doors to generations of people fleeing personal persecution, civil unrest and war. Charles Kennedy
If you're going to write about war, which my books are about, wars are nasty things. I think it's sort of a cheap, easy way out to write a war story in which no one ultimately dies. George R. R. Martin
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 didn't want to write a 'this is how it is' Iraq book, because the Iraq War is an intensely complicated variety of things. Phil Klay
It is probably true that I would not have had as many children or mothers in my books without being a mother with children. It is definitely true that I would not have written about the Civil War without having a little guy who was obsessed with it. Marly Youmans
After the war, when my husband came home, we had two more children, and domesticity for a while prevailed combined with beginning the work I had always wanted to do, which was writing a book. Barbara W. Tuchman
Mobile communications and pervasive computing technologies, together with social contracts that were never possible before, are already beginning to change the way people meet, mate, work, war, buy, sell, govern and create. Howard Rheingold
People try to glorify war, particularly those who aren't actually fighting in them. People tend to make heroes of those who are fighting in them. John Boyne
The real and lasting victories are those of peace, and not of war. Ralph Waldo Emerson
The Democrats' plan for 2006? Take the House and Senate and impeach the president. With our nation at war, is this the kind of Congress you want? Ken Mehlman
Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the Peace Corps as it reached its 45th anniversary on March 1, 2006. Solomon Ortiz
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
For every veteran who goes through a divorce, a wife goes through one, too. For every veteran alone in the basement, there is a wife upstairs, bewildered, isolated and in despair from the dark clouds of war that hangs over family life. Karl Marlantes
Milosevic will never stop, because he is fighting for personal power in Serbia. The only way to stop him is cutting the functioning of his war machine. He is spending $1.7 million a day on his war machine in Kosovo. Fatos Nano
In war, when a commander becomes so bereft of reason and perspective that he fails to understand the dependence of arms on Divine guidance, he no longer deserves victory. Lucius Annaeus Seneca
War is not an adventure. It is a disease. It is like typhus. Antoine de Saint-Exupery
I think Charles Manson was a hair's breath away from just being a terrorist. He wanted to start a war, too. Patty Hearst
For some years I have spent my time on exactly these questions - both in thinking about ways to prevent war, and in thinking about how to fight, survive, and terminate a war, should it occur. Herman Kahn
For years, Lebanese have known that Palestinian camps like Nahr al-Barid and Ain al-Helwe - hopeless slums crowded with generations of disenfranchised Palestinian refugees who can't go home because of Israel, and can't work because of Lebanese laws - are awash with gunmen, criminals and, since the war in Iraq, al-Qaida inspired jihadists. Richard Engel
The Cherokees tried to do everything within the law and wished only to live in peace on their own lands. Yet they were cheated out of their birthright and treated as if they were less than human. Joseph Bruchac
Obedience brings peace in decision making. If we have firmly made up our minds to follow the commandments, we will not have to redecide which path to take when temptation comes our way. James E. Faust
I wish the press were paying more attention to the erosion of the Constitution and the slippery slope that we're getting into, by giving up the right of the Congress to talk about when and how and where we go to war. Barbara Lee
To be misunderstood can be the writer's punishment for having disturbed the reader's peace. The greater the disturbance, the greater the possibility of misunderstanding. Anatole Broyard
Where the stakes are the highest, in the war on terror, we cannot possibly succeed without extraordinary international cooperation. Effective international police actions require the highest degree of intelligence sharing, planning and collaborative enforcement. Barack Obama
World War II had been such a tremendous success story for this country that the political and military leadership began to assume that they would prevail simply because of who they were. We were like the British at the turn of the 19th century. Neil Sheehan
Our armed forces will fight for peace in Iraq, a peace built on more secure foundations than are found today in the Middle East. Even more important, they will fight for two human conditions of even greater value than peace: liberty and justice. John McCain
In order to overcome the spirit that creates war, mothers must begin in the tender years of childhood to teach children that right must be the foundation of all might, that authority can be exercised without the help of fists. Ellen Key
To make a film is easy; to make a good film is war. To make a very good film is a miracle. Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
Now people all across America are starting to believe in America again. We are coming back, back to the heights of greatness, back to America's proud role as a temple of justice and a champion of peace. Theodore C. Sorensen
We advised them to do what they think proper against the war. Hanoi Hannah
We have the purveyors of hatred who take every single incident between people of two races and try to make a race war out of it and drive wedges into people. And this does not need to be done. Ben Carson
War is an arena for the display of courage and virtue. Or war is politics by other means. War is a quasi-mystical experience where you get in touch with the real. There are millions of narratives we impose to try to make sense of war. Phil Klay
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
Thus, what is of supreme importance in war is to attack the enemy's strategy. Sun Tzu
The republican is the only form of government which is not eternally at open or secret war with the rights of mankind. Thomas Jefferson
Well, where is the money? Show me the money? Our allies have put up a few billion dollars, but the American taxpayer has been required to shoulder the burden of this war. Jim Cooper
The House of Peers, throughout the war, did nothing in particular, and did it very well. William Gilbert
Government is waging war against the people. L. Neil Smith
Surely our inaction with respect to Syria is a poor precedent if we're fighting a war on terror. Bill Kristol
It is not surprising that most Pakistanis do not support America's bombardment of Afghanistan. The Afghans are neighbours on the brink of starvation and devastated by war. America has shown itself to be untrustworthy, a superpower that uses its values as a scabbard for its sword. Mohsin Hamid
I'm generally not a fan of didactic art because it papers over many of the hard experiences about war or anything else in life. I wanted to explore various aspects of the experience without an eye towards delivering any particular message. Phil Klay
The west has a great deal to answer for in the Middle East, from Britain's belated empire-building after the First World War to the US and British policy that condemns modern Iraq to the material and social squalor of a half-century ago. James Buchan
There has always been tension between reporters and the administration, particularly when it comes to war in the modern era. You can go to Kennedy or Johnson and see that they weren't happy with David Halberstam or Morley Safer. Lowell Bergman
The tragedy of war is that it uses man's best to do man's worst. Harry Emerson Fosdick
An offensive war, I believe to be wrong and would therefore have nothing to do with it, having no right to meddle with another man's property, his ox or his ass, his man servant or his maid servant or anything this is his. Daniel Morgan
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
When you've married someone who's been at war, there is nothing you can do that compares to that level of selflessness and bravery. John Oliver
After the atomic bombs were dropped, the war ended and we went into Tokyo Bay with the rest of the fleet, the Missouri and the rest of them, while they signed the terms of surrender that ended the war. Barney Ross
I cannot think of any circumstances in which a government can go to war without the support of parliament. Tony Blair
Peace rules the day, where reason rules the mind. Wilkie Collins
In the war, most young men were inducted into the armed forces at the age of 17. A group of students was permitted to attend university before taking part in wartime research projects. John Pople
In peace, sons bury their fathers. In war, fathers bury their sons. Herodotus
I think it is a mistake to focus - as we most often do - only on the sacrifice of life that war requires. War also requires that we sacrifice our normal unwillingness to kill. Stanley Hauerwas
I'm lucky to have met so many people who have been involved in peace and who have been peace prize winners. Joan Baez
It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, more vengeance, more desolation. War is hell. William Tecumseh Sherman
I knew trucking was growing. It grew from the Second World War to the time that I bought the bridge. There were interstate highways being built. I thought there was opportunity. Manuel Moroun
In searching for a rationale to go to war, Bush settled on the notion of Saddam as an incarnation of evil, basically, and convinced himself that Saddam was fundamentally Adolf Hitler reborn. I think his feelings towards Saddam were in fact quite genuine and quite legitimately hostile. He was not play acting. Rick Atkinson
My explanation remains the same: It was an attempt to make the point that anyone who opposed the war can achieve their objective by working within their sphere of influence, whether their political party or community of faith. James P. Moran
A little prosperity and peace, or even a turn slightly for the better, can bring us feelings of self-sufficiency. We can feel quickly that we are in control of our lives, that the change for the better is our own doing, not that of a God who communicates to us through the still, small voice of the Spirit. Henry B. Eyring
In a multipolar world, there must be more powers capable of taking responsibility, the U.S. and Europe must be able to unite to achieve peace in the Middle East. Dominique de Villepin
In war, the army is not merely a pure consumer, but a negative producer. Lewis Mumford
I find myself more at peace when I live in Europe. Norman Granz
I've also gotten to play in front of a million people in Central Park when there was a grass roots movement calling for nuclear disarmament - it was about 1982 - they called it Peace Sunday. Jackson Browne
What's so touching is the way we fight the war right until the moment our business is taken care of and then we turn on a dime and we immediately start taking care of people. It's like a shock and aw shucks campaign. Dennis Miller
I'd say my mother made more of a difference to me than anyone else did. I know that's a conventional and perhaps mundane answer, but my family was blown apart at the start of World War II. Herb Kelleher
Hunger and sex still dominate the primitive mammalian side of human existence, but at the present time it looks as if humanity were within sight of their satisfaction. Permanent plenty, no longer a Utopian dream, awaits the arrival of permanent peace. John Desmond Bernal
Germany was beaten after World War I, but it didn't take long for it to rise again as a much more malignant threat. The end of World War II was not to be a compromise; it was to come about from the total annihilation of the enemies' ability and will to make war. Monica Crowley
There cannot be peace in the Middle East without giving Palestinians their full rights. Mohammed Morsi
Think about a guy like Bob Mitchum, with his kind of chest gut not defining itself one way or the other. Was there anybody tougher? Lee Marvin was a marine sniper during the Second World War. They had this sense of themselves, and they had this product of being a man in a masculine way. Joe Carnahan
The E.U. cannot act as guardian of the post-Cold War status quo without risking a collapse of Europe's current institutional infrastructure. Ivan Krastev
The war was declared over - the end of major combat operations - in May 2003. Release procedures got under way immediately; reducing the population from 8,000 to just over 300, of course, requires fewer military police soldiers. Janis Karpinski
Most of our cities built since the war are bland. They're modernist, they're cold, and now architects want to go back to that. Frank Gehry
This is the reality of nuclear weapons: they may trigger a world war; a war which, unlike previous ones, destroys all of civilization. Joseph Rotblat
I have always been willing to admit when I made a mistake. I made a mistake in my understanding of the composition of the Contras, not on my opposition to the Contra war. Bianca Jagger
In the Gulf War, U.S. Marine Corps wheeled vehicles were killing Iraqi T-72 tanks. Ralph Peters
This war is not necessary. We are truly sleepwalking through history. Robert Byrd
How do you keep war accountable to the American people when war becomes invisible and virtual? Michael Ignatieff
Peace demands the most heroic labor and the most difficult sacrifice. It demands greater heroism than war. It demands greater fidelity to the truth and a much more perfect purity of conscience. Thomas Merton
When human beings live together, conflict is inevitable. War is not. Daisaku Ikeda
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
We can realise a lasting peace and transform the East-West relationship to one of enduring co-operation. George H. W. Bush
Like Afghanistan before it, Iraq is only one theater in a regional war. We were attacked by a network of terrorist organizations supported by several countries, of whom the most important were Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Saudi Arabia. Michael Ledeen
It seems to me that the Swedish Academy of Science may be qualifying for the Nobel Peace Prize. It recognises no nationality; it discourages unworthy national feeling and prejudice. Charles Glover Barkla
One thing that was amazing about World War II was that everybody signed up for the duration plus six months. Fliers got to leave combat after 25 missions, or 35 missions, but other than that, you were in it. You were part of the great effort, until, oh boy, six months after it was over. Tom Hanks
War is evitable if conditions are such that the costs of making war are higher than the benefits. Frans de Waal
Two years later, I went to the University of Minnesota from which I was on leave for several years during the war as a member of Statistical Research Group at Columbia University. George Stigler
If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace. Thomas Paine
Soldiers of the American Revolution fought that 18th century war with heavy muskets. In the early 20th century, we kids fought it every Fourth of July not only with exploding powder and shimmering flares, but with all of our senses. Paul Engle
No one is immune from the larger events of his or her time - the Depression, World War II, civil rights, Vietnam, the spring of 1989 in China. These events intrude upon our lives and radically affect our directions. Paul Tsongas
The Marine Corps has to ask itself, 'What does our nation need from its premier crisis response force?' We are America's shock troops in war and peace. I know it sounds corny, but it's not. James F. Amos
Useful as a war against France, undertaken by the Government against the will of the people would be for our revolutionary development, just so dangerous must be the effect upon our democratic development of a war supported by blind popular enthusiasm. Ferdinand Lassalle
When resources are degraded, we start competing for them, whether it is at the local level in Kenya, where we had tribal clashes over land and water, or at the global level, where we are fighting over water, oil, and minerals. So one way to promote peace is to promote sustainable management and equitable distribution of resources. Wangari Maathai
Our only weapons in this war of your lifetime are the weapons of the mind. Paul Tsongas
My first encounter with science fiction was reading the work of H.G. Wells when I was nine or ten, and I don't believe 'The War of the Worlds' or 'The Time Machine' have ever been bettered. Plus, I have always had a liking for Victorian and Edwardian clothes and contraptions, which tends to color the worlds I dream up. Philip Reeve
My mother always used to say, 'There is no path to peace. Peace is the path.' Donald Freed
God and the politicians willing, the United States can declare peace upon the world, and win it. Ely Culbertson
We ask the great masses of India to be patient a short time longer, while the cause of freedom is being fought out, not because we want to delay, but because the hard facts of war make a complete change impossible at the moment. Stafford Cripps
The Korean War, which China entered on the side of North Korea, fixed Mao's image in the United States as another unappeasable Communist. Pankaj Mishra
'The Accursed' is very much a novel about social injustice as the consequence of the terrible, tragic division of classes - the exploitation not only of poor and immigrant workers but of their young children in factories and mills - and as the consequence of race hatred in the aftermath of the Civil War and the freeing of the slaves. Joyce Carol Oates
We've been in the nation-building business since World War I, and especially since WWII. The goal is not a Jeffersonian Democracy in Afghanistan, but a representative government that respects human rights, protects its own people, and is a friend of the West. These are very realistic - and necessary - goals. Oliver North
Registration is a World War II response, and we need a 1980 solution. Patricia Schroeder
I certainly notice the vitality in Belfast, which wasn't there in the Seventies. There was a war going on then. Now there are cranes everywhere. There really is a sense of renewal and hope. Liam Neeson
War is the greatest plague that can afflict humanity, it destroys religion, it destroys states, it destroys families. Any scourge is preferable to it. Martin Luther
There are no war stories. I ended up a bombardier, but I never got overseas. And it wasn't because I was playing baseball either. It was just a series of things that went on. Bobby Thomson
War is hell. You can't photograph a flying bullet, but you can capture genuine fear. Horst Faas
Putin stands for the opposite of a universal ideology; he has become an arch-nationalist of a pre-Cold War type, making mystic appeals to motherland and religion. George Packer
War is much too serious a thing to be left to military men. Charles Maurice de Talleyrand
The difference must be distinguished between worship and respect. Islam orders you to obey and respect, as long as you are not worshiping anything other than God... Islam is a religion of peace. You don't attack. You explain. Hakeem Olajuwon
I started with things that I was troubled by or confused by or interested in, and then I wrote stories to try to puzzle my way through it. But the question is not how to represent war, because it's an abstract thing that's felt differently for all the characters. Phil Klay
During the first six years of my life, Hungary was one of the most important components of the Habsburg dynasty's vast Austro-Hungarian Empire, but after World War I it became an independent national entity. Georg Solti
In the decade before the Civil War various north and south lines of railway were projected and some of these were assisted by grants of land from the Federal Government. John Moody
A novel can be set in motion by an incident, a character, a location, a mood - by anything at all. Sometimes the stimulus can be an idea, which will rapidly clothe itself in character and incident. 'Foreign Bodies' came about through the contemplation of the contrast between post-second world war America and Europe. Cynthia Ozick
Since I'm allergic to various things, the army wouldn't accept me during the war, and I got into the Office of War Information, which sent music to Europe. Elliott Carter
We're living through a time where we are fighting wars fostered by politics, admittedly not on the same scale as the First World War, but with equally tragic realities for our soldiers and their families. Benedict Cumberbatch
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
To some people, the impossible is impossible. One fine day, they wake up in the morning knowing that they will never hold the moon in their hands, and with the certainty, perfect peace descends on them. Elizabeth Bibesco
With the Truman book, I wrote the entire account of his experiences in World War I before going over to Europe to follow his tracks in the war. When I got there, there was a certain satisfaction in finding I had it right - it does look like that. David McCullough
I'm doing another Churchill. I did a Churchill for HBO and that was up to 1939 and there's talk of the war years. They were going to do it this fall, but the script wasn't going to be ready. Albert Finney
I think nothing has been filmed as much as World War II. David Ayer
The question that we must ask is whether we are making progress toward the goal of universal peace. Or are we caught up on a treadmill of history, turning forever on the axle of mindless aggression and self-destruction? F. W. de Klerk
I did do a war movie, 'Windtalkers.' That was a lot of action. But once you've done one big action/war movie, you don't need to do another one. Noah Emmerich
Churchill knew the importance of peace, and he also knew the price of it. Churchill finally got his voice, of course. He stressed strategy, but it was his voice that armed England at last with the old-fashioned moral concepts of honor and duty, justice and mercy. Suzanne Fields
I never come back home with the same moral character I went out with; something or other becomes unsettled where I had achieved internal peace; some one or other of the things I had put to flight reappears on the scene. Lucius Annaeus Seneca
When you make your peace with authority, you become authority. Jim Morrison
That war has brought with it a truly incredible development of means of destruction and a terrifying prospect of rapid and almost limitless development in that direction. Cordell Hull
Don't tell me peace has broken out. Bertolt Brecht
If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other. Mother Teresa
There is need occasionally to leave the noise and the tumult of the world and step within the walls of a sacred house of God, there to feel His Spirit in an environment of holiness and peace. Gordon B. Hinckley
The skirmishes in the occupied land are part of the war of destiny. The outcome of hundreds of years of war will be defined in Palestinian land. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
In the 1990s, Islamists in Algeria won elections like the Brotherhood did in Egypt. The Algerian military refused to allow the Islamists to take power. A war erupted, killing between 100,000 to 200,000 people, depending on which estimates are to be believed. Richard Engel
I can bulk up very fast. I can lift heavy weights because, like most people, I started off with heavy workouts. That's stayed in my muscle memory. I feel horrible when I feel my jeans are getting tight. Workouts peace me out. Arjun Rampal
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
Playing a prisoner of war trapped in Pakistan for three years was a novelty for me. We made sure that we didn't talk about India versus Pakistan but about the emotions of people on both sides and how terrorism affects us all. Akshay Kumar
When terrorists blew up the Marine barracks in Lebanon, Reagan was frustrated and furious, as Bush was after 9/11. But he didn't stick us in a war in the Middle East with no exit. Douglas Brinkley
The life of inner peace, being harmonious and without stress, is the easiest type of existence. Norman Vincent Peale
With acting, you wanna see if you can get into trouble without knowing how you're gonna get out of it. It's like the exact opposite of war, where you need an exit strategy. When you're acting, you should get all the way into trouble with no exit strategy, and have the cameras rolling. John Cusack
War had always seemed to me to be a purely human behavior. Accounts of warlike behavior date back to the very first written records of human history; it seemed to be an almost universal characteristic of human groups. Jane Goodall
I am 73 years old. I've seen everything. I've met the kings, the queens, the presidents, I've been around the world. I have one thing that I would like to do: to try to reach peace. Ariel Sharon
CERN is a concrete example of worldwide, international co-operation - and a concrete example of peace. The place which makes, in my opinion, better scientists, but also better people. Fabiola Gianotti
We can best honor the memories of those who were killed on September 11 and those who have been killed fighting the war on terrorism, by dedicating ourselves to building a free and peaceful world safe from the threat of terrorism. Jack Reed
I'm finding myself really angry over spending and the deficit. I'm finding myself really angry over what's happening in the Middle East, the decision to stay in Afghanistan indefinitely. I'm angry about cap and trade. And I've been on record for a long time on the failed war on drugs. Gary Johnson
I preferred the weapons of dialectic to all the other teachings of philosophy, and armed with these, I chose the conflicts of disputation rather than the trophies of war. Peter Abelard
But it cannot follow that because weapons and troops are now being deployed we are bound to go to war. Douglas Hurd
A peace deal requires agreements, and you don't make agreements with your friends, you make agreements with your enemies. Richard Holbrooke
American power remains today what it was in the Second World War and the Cold War: the greatest force for freedom in the world. Elliott Abrams
You have to make peace with life. Cheryl Ladd
58% of the American public are with us. We're preaching to the choir, but the choir's not singing, if all of the 58% started singing, this war would end. Cindy Sheehan
I was disappointed, not because we had lost the war but because our people had allowed it to go on for so many years, instead of heeding the few voices of protest against all that mass insanity and slaughter. George Grosz
China has been committed to the independent foreign policy of peace and has developed friendship and cooperation with all countries on the basis of the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence. Hu Jintao
From a scientific perspective there is some indication that a nuclear war could deplete the earth's ozone layer or, less likely, could bring on a new Ice Age - but there is no suggestion that either the created order or mankind would be destroyed in the process. Herman Kahn
Human-rights advocates, for example, claim that the mistreatment of Iraqi prisoners is of a piece with President Bush's 2002 decision to deny al Qaeda and Taliban fighters the legal status of prisoners of war under the Geneva Conventions. John Yoo
I know that war and mayhem run in our blood. I refuse to believe that they must dominate our lives. We humans are animals, too, but animals with amazing powers of rationality, morality, society. We can use our strength and courage not to savage each other, but to defend our highest purposes. Donella Meadows
Helplessness induces hopelessness, and history attests that loss of hope and not loss of lives is what decides the issue of war. B. H. Liddell Hart
After World War II great strides were made in modern Japanese architecture, not only in advanced technology, allowing earthquake resistant tall buildings, but expressing and infusing characteristics of traditional Japanese architecture in modern buildings. Harry Seidler
One is to ensure that the war fighters and the intelligence analysts get the information that they need when they need it, in a format that's useful to them. Stephen Cambone
Peace is not the absence of conflict but the presence of creative alternatives for responding to conflict - alternatives to passive or aggressive responses, alternatives to violence. Dorothy Thompson
My dear Excellency! I have not gone to war to collect cheese and eggs, but for another purpose. Manfred von Richthofen
In the early nineteenth century, with Enlightenment optimism soured by years of war and revolution, critics were skeptical of America's naive faith that it had reinvented politics. Simon Schama
The word 'success' - who's defining it? It's about whether or not it makes me feel good. Four billion people don't have to see or hear it. If I've enjoyed the process of creation and I'm at peace, then what happens next is just entertainment. If mass appeal were actually something, Marilyn Monroe wouldn't be dead. Grace Slick
Classical tragedy was the war between good and evil. We wanted evil to be defeated and good to be victorious. But the battle in modern tragedy is between good and good. And no matter which side wins, we'll still be heartbroken. Asghar Farhadi
As we have sought through the centuries to define ourselves as human beings and as nations through the prisms of history and literature, no small part of that effort has drawn us to the subject of war. We might even say that the humanities began with war and from war, and have remained entwined with it ever since. Drew Gilpin Faust
In war the heroes always outnumber the soldiers ten to one. H. L. Mencken
All war aims for impunity. Michael Ignatieff
Ultimately, we have just one moral duty: to reclaim large areas of peace in ourselves, more and more peace, and to reflect it towards others. And the more peace there is in us, the more peace there will be in our troubled world. Etty Hillesum
Although the troops have struck us, we throw it all behind and are glad to meet you in peace and friendship. Black Kettle
Some think the worst horrors of war might be avoided by an international agreement not to use atomic bombs. This is a vain hope. John Boyd Orr
When a decision is made to go to war based on intelligence, it is a fateful decision. It has ramifications and impacts way beyond the current months and years. Carl Levin
On the international political landscape, there is better understanding of Pakistan's political economic and strategic issues. We aspire to promote peace and harmony with the region. Asif Ali Zardari
With a book called 'Keeping Score,' I really did want to write a book about the Korean War, because I felt that it is the least understood war in the American cultural imagination. So I set out with the idea that Americans didn't know much about the Korean War and that I was going to try to fix a tiny bit of that. Linda Sue Park
And he said that he didn't want to have a war or anything like that again. Samantha Smith
What is our vision on this earth - war to the end of all generations and life by the sword? Moshe Sharett
When General Allenby conquered Jerusalem during World War I, he was hailed in the American press as Richard the Lion-Hearted, who had at last won the Crusades and driven the pagans out of the Holy Land. Noam Chomsky
No one has the right to ignite a war and lead an occupation and armies to conquer people, invading them and make them suffer all kinds of torture, murder, expulsion, displacement, bombing and terrorism by different lethal prohibited weapons and then come and speak as the savior of the people or a defender of their rights. Muqtada al Sadr
We had the courage to face the superpowers that wanted a military triumph for each side they supported in Central America. We told them, 'No,' and presented a peace plan. Oscar Arias
I wanted to fight in the Iraq war because I felt like I had an obligation as a human being to help free people from oppression. Edward Snowden
What is more immoral than war? Marquis de Sade
My latter schooldays and my university days were during the war, when science - physics, in particular - was a very important and glamorous subject. A lot of us felt that if we couldn't get into science, we might try engineering or medicine. John Henry Carver
Finally Germany's attack on Russia seemed to confirm that Russia was not shirking and was prepared to carry out a foreign policy with the risk of war with Germany. Klaus Fuchs
I can have peace of mind only when I forgive rather than judge. Gerald Jampolsky
During the run up to the Iraq War, Mike Farrell and I did get on television kind of frequently, but then they saw that that didn't work. They really couldn't bait us into being stupid, so they stopped. You know the mainstream media, corporate media, avoids ever giving anyone who has anything to say a platform, if they can possibly help it. James Cromwell
To the Parisians, and especially to the children, all Americans are now 'heros du cinema.' This is particularly disconcerting to sensitive war correspondents, if any, aware, as they are, that these innocent thanks belong to those American combat troops who won the beachhead and then made the breakthrough. There are few such men in Paris. A. J. Liebling
This was the period when I used all the influence I had to get the British to abandon their export trade, and as much as possible convert all of their manufacturing facilities to the immediate needs of the war, including civilian, as well as military requirements. W. Averell Harriman
Peace has to be created, in order to be maintained. It will never be achieved by passivity and quietism. Dorothy Thompson
My mom gets so upset at me when I say stuff in the press about anything political, and it drives me crazy because I say to my mom: 'I can't be on the side of any sort of war and I'm not going to be.' Jake Shears
During the early months of the war in 1914 there was a conflict of opinion between the War Office and the Foreign Office regarding news from the Front. Philip Gibbs
Men o' war were to be a part of the fabric of my life for the next half-century. Lord Mountbatten
Now here I am almost 52 years old, it's really easy. I'm way more at peace. But when you're a competitor, and you're as intent on becoming the best in the world as I was, it comes with consequences. Kirk Gibson
We never know who we are going to be until we are tested, but perhaps we can test ourselves without going to the extremes of war. Perhaps we can be kinder now, live with less now, reach out to others now - and build an inner reserve of a strong identity that will hold us up even when everything else falls away. Deborah Ellis
The game is my wife. It demands loyalty and responsibility, and it gives me back fulfillment and peace. Michael Jordan
In my judgment, the greatest risks are international terrorist groups like al Qaeda and Hezbollah. The war in Iraq has taken our attention off those priorities. Bob Graham
War is the science of destruction. John Abbott
In his final year in office, Clinton decided that his contribution to Middle East peace would lie not in the removal of Saddam Hussein but in a grand attempt to resolve the conflict between the Palestinians and Israel. With this, he missed his last chance to deal forcefully with the man he was publicly committed to overthrowing. Arthur L. Herman
In my view of the present aspect of affairs, there is no need of bloodshed and war. There is no necessity for it. I am not in favor of such a course, and I may say in advance, there will be no blood shed unless it be forced upon the government. The government will not use force unless force is used against it. Abraham Lincoln
It's often been observed that the first casualty of war is the truth. But that's a lie, too, in its way. The reality is that, for most wars to begin, the truth has to have been sacrificed a long time in advance. L. Neil Smith
I grew up during the Cold War, when everything seemed very tenuous. For many years, right up until the fall of the Berlin Wall, I had vivid nightmares of nuclear apocalypse. Justin Cronin
Americans, particularly after World War II, tended to romanticize war because in World War II our cause was the cause of humanity, and our soldiers brought home glory and victory, and thank God that they did. But it led us to romanticize it to some extent. Neil Sheehan
I think Muslims have become the new Negroes in America. They are being mistreated at airports, by the Immigration - everywhere. Islam is a religion of peace. They are wrong. Jermaine Jackson
China's reform and opening-up programme and Europe's integration process have both contributed significantly to global peace, development, and prosperity. China firmly supports the integration of Europe and regards the E.U. as a strategic partner that deserves our confidence. Li Keqiang
I think that the Cold War was an exceptional and unnecessary piece of cruelty. Jane Smiley
We believe democracy to be the only real guarantor of stability and we have sought to create a 'Jordanian model' that might also inspire others in our region. I wish democracy and peace to be my legacy to my people and the shield of generations to come. King Hussein I
Number one, that it is smart to communicate and negotiate with your enemy instead of just waging war with bombs and weapons of mass destruction. Theodore C. Sorensen
The Second World War simplified things like race, and people came down on very clear lines. Chiwetel Ejiofor
War, we are told, shapes character; it resolves the major questions of international politics, consolidates nations, and indeed, constitutes the principal factor in the progress of civilization through its successive stages. Elie Ducommun
No one can take Jesus away from me. There's no doubt there was a historical figure of tremendous importance, with enormous notions. Such as peace. Peter O'Toole
I worked night and day for twelve years to prevent the war, but I could not. The North was mad and blind, would not let us govern ourselves, and so the war came. Jefferson Davis
Two thousand people a day were being murdered in Vietnam in a terrorist war, an official terrorist war. Bill Ayers
Throughout the years following World War II and until the formation of the European Economic Community in 1958, I was very active as a national or international rapporteur at many of the international conferences aiming to establish an European community. Maurice Allais
A lasting order cannot be established by bayonets. Ludwig von Mises
Unless a nation's life faces peril, war is murder. Mustafa Kemal Ataturk
Bush may be a strong leader in the war on terrorism, but on budget deficits he is missing-in-action. Jim Cooper
History teaches that war begins when governments believe the price of aggression is cheap. Ronald Reagan

I will work to bring peace to everyone - whatever economic level - as long as you are Haitian. Jean-Bertrand Aristide
Although Omaha is my birthplace and the place I grew up, I don't see myself spending extended amounts of time there. I feel almost more comfortable and more at peace in New York. Conor Oberst
I'm not massively fond of right-wing nutters or war criminals. Alastair Reynolds
And the young people in the 1960's identified with it immediately, because, I guess the young people had been having years of repression really. They felt that the, you know, after the war everything was very austere, particularly in Europe. George Martin
The time has come - and must come - for multilateral conversations about a secure peace in all of Europe. Gustav Heinemann
I challenge anybody to say that I wouldn't know how to approach foreign policy because, unlike some of the other people, I at least have a foreign policy philosophy, which is an extension of the Reagan philosophy. Peace through strength, and my philosophy is peace through strength and clarity. Herman Cain
Alliance does not mean love, any more than war means hate. Francis Parker Yockey
The Patriot Act is essential to our continued success in the war on terror here at home. Mike Pence
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 war against terror is every bit as important as our fight against fascism in World War II. Or our struggle against the spread of Communism during the Cold War. Jim Bunning
During the Vietnam era, more than 30,000 draft dodgers and deserters sought harbor in cities like Montreal and Toronto, where public opposition to the war was strong and most residents didn't question their motives. Wil S. Hylton
I often compare myself as a kid to my own grandchildren, who are around 11 and 14 now. That's the age kids usually read my book. And I remember myself; we'd gone through a world war. My father was an army officer so I was aware of what was going on. But I wasn't bombarded with images of catastrophe like many kids are today. Lois Lowry
Libya as a country is a relatively new concept. The period of Libya as a modern nation really starts after World War II. Elliott Abrams
The sense of war, the extraordinary bravery of the Allied armies, the numbers, the losses, the real suffering that disappears in time and commemorative oratory, are not marked out in any red guidebook of the emotions, but they are present if you look. John Vinocur
My parents were not born in Vienna, but they had spent much of their lives there, having each come to the city at the beginning of World War I when they were still very young. Eric Kandel
After that his Majesty was beheaded, the Parliament for some years effected nothing either for the publick peace or tranquillity of the nation, or settling religion as they had formerly promised. William Lilly
You should be careful what you wish for, as the reasons for war get confused. One person can be very clear in their motives, but others can have different agendas. Dougray Scott
I think each book sort of finds its own theme as it goes on. 'Warded Man' was fear. 'Desert Spear' was exploration of the other. 'Daylight War' was relationships. Some of this is intentional, and some of it evolves naturally. The series as a whole is obviously something I have given a lot of thought to, but each book is its own animal as well. Peter V. Brett
During the Cold War, America undertook serious military cuts only once: after the election of Richard Nixon, during the Vietnam War. The result: Vietnam fell to the Communists, the Russians moved into Afghanistan, and American influence around the globe waned dramatically. Ben Shapiro
What Ireland needs now above all else is peace. Albert Reynolds
Some of my earliest political feelings were based on the anti-Japanese bubblegum cards I got. There were also Spanish Civil War bubblegum cards. Awful. Ed Asner

Mr. Reagan spent World War II, the global conflict fought and won by his generation, making training films in Hollywood. R. W. Apple, Jr.
Few Americans born after the Civil War know much about war. Real war. War that seeks you out. War that arrives on your doorstep - not once in a blue moon, but once a month or a week or a day. Nick Turse
The war was a mirror; it reflected man's every virtue and every vice, and if you looked closely, like an artist at his drawings, it showed up both with unusual clarity. George Grosz
When war comes, two things happen - profits go way, way up and all perishables go way, way down. There becomes a market for them. Steven Spielberg
This war differs from other wars, in this particular. We are not fighting armies but a hostile people, and must make old and young, rich and poor, feel the hard hand of war. William Tecumseh Sherman
In a war of ideas it is people who get killed. Stanislaw Jerzy Lec
Future peace, prosperity and confidence depend not just on ourselves but on the success of all nations. Hence, we are all partners, no matter what our backgrounds, cultures, faiths and histories. Hassanal Bolkiah
An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind. Mahatma Gandhi
Let Jammu and Kashmir lead the way in the building of a new future for India. Let it set an example to the rest of India and the world by showing how the entire region can be transformed into a zone of peace, stability and prosperity. Pranab Mukherjee
Well, you know, I was through the whole of the Second World War and saw all my friends killed. Patrick Macnee
A desire arises in the mind. It is satisfied immediately another comes. In the interval which separates two desires a perfect calm reigns in the mind. It is at this moment freed from all thought, love or hate. Complete peace equally reigns between two mental waves. Swami Sivananda
During the war, my mother used to take me to the local repertory theatre on a Monday night, and we used to get two seats for the price of one, for nine pence, in the gods. Geraldine McEwan
You know, people have actually changed the way they think about nuclear weapons now, post-Cold War, post-9/11. The threat of nuclear weapons is not so much Russia attacking the United States, China. It's not a state-to-state - it's obviously terrorism; it's proliferation. Lawrence Bender
If I took the 40 years of my dad talking to me about war and battles and taking me to battlefields and distilled it down into one question, it would probably be the idea of the necessary or unnecessary war. Suzanne Collins
I was never convinced that war was the best system to bring democracy to the country. Silvio Berlusconi
I want young people to be hesitant to glorify war and to demand of their leaders justification for the sacrifices they ask of our citizens. Walter Dean Myers
Baseball is only a game, a game of inches and a lot of luck. During a time of all-out war, sports are very insignificant. Bob Feller
The object of war is victory; that of victory is conquest; and that of conquest preservation. Charles de Secondat
A war between Europeans is a civil war. Victor Hugo
In Czechoslovakia in 1968, communist reformers appealed to democratic ideals that were deeply rooted in the country's pre-second world war past. Adam Michnik
The end of art is peace. Seamus Heaney
Who do you call a civilian in a guerilla war? I mean, it might be a farmer by day or a merchant, a housewife, and by night the housewife may be helping to make landmines and booby traps and who knows. Tim O'Brien
What Stieg Larsson was up to - it was the Swedish guilt over World War II. All of our neighbors had the most terrible experiences with the bad forces, but Sweden didn't. I think we use the thrillers in a different way. We never write a thriller like 'Who is the murderer?' The big question in most of our thrillers is... 'Why?' Michael Nyqvist
Until the last great war, a general expectation of material improvement was an idea peculiar to Western man. Now war and its aftermath have made economic and social progress a political imperative in every quarter of the globe. Lester B. Pearson
Finland had a civil war less than 100 years ago, just like in Ireland. If you look at the history of newly independent nations, civil war is almost every time present, even in the United States. Harri Holkeri
I don't only long for the thrill of being in the middle of a war, I must understand it; I must make other people understand. Amanda Lindhout
It is the conflicting interests of the man and the woman, the home and the shop, the Church and the State, which cause the economic struggle, the war and the strife with which mankind is cursed and which make all long and pray for the reign of peace. Max Heindel
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
If Americans knew how to deal with other people, they could bring peace to the world. Alas, they have not learned enough yet. The true American feels that he is 100 percent welcome anywhere he goes. Nguyen Cao Ky
More and more, I think about the role of the arts, and as an artist, I think that it's important that I share the love and peace. Yayoi Kusama
I'm an old guy. I don't hustle and I don't bustle. So sometimes you're behind, but that's okay. Your peace of mind is more important. I have seen the people who hustle and bustle, and they are already gone, at a young age. They could have enjoyed life. Kumar Pallana
Philadelphia reflected the national turmoil over race and the Vietnam War, often exploding on my watch. Andrea Mitchell
After every war someone has to tidy up. Wislawa Szymborska
I've read my grandmother's memoirs and she served as a nurse during World War II. What they had to do was incredible. Jessica Brown Findlay
There is no greater feeling than hanging out with my dogs, or just walking around the land with our horses. My rescue ranch is is where I feel the most at peace and where I'm reminded of the simple things in life and let the chaos of my crazy work life fade away. Kelly Clarkson
My generation had the best years. We missed the Second World War and caught the outburst of rock 'n' roll. Georgie Fame
Was Castro sincere when, during his guerrilla war, he swore that he was not a Communist? If so, when did he change, and why? Looking back, does he believe he might have chosen a better course? Stephen Kinzer
I hated the bangs in the war: I always felt a silent war would be more tolerable. Pamela Hansford Johnson
We knew shortly after the war that our troops were becoming ill. Christopher Shays
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 like to tell people that I have the best job in the media. All I do is hang around with heroes. I do that every week for my 'War Stories' documentary series - and when FOX News wants - I go off and cover the young Americans we send to places like Afghanistan or Iraq. Oliver North
9/11 was a deliberate, carefully planned evil act of the long-waged war on the West by Koran-inspired soldiers of Allah around the world. They hated us before George W. Bush was in office. They hated us before Israel existed. And the avengers of the religion of perpetual outrage will keep hating us. Michelle Malkin
I believe however that peace is attainable regardless of the Arabs mentality, society or government. Yitzhak Rabin
With no draft, the only people who went to war were those who wanted to, or at least those who wanted to join the military. Tim O'Brien
The thing about World War II is that everyone knows about the concentration camps in Europe - in Nazi Germany and Poland and Auschwitz and the other camps - but, no one really talks about the camps that were here in the United States. Lea Salonga
I'm not sure Americans are hesitant to do this again - to fight another war, because it looked to them like a courageous and terrific endeavor. Ashleigh Banfield
American POWs from the last Iraq war, who were held prisoner and tortured by Iraq, are now being prevented by our government from suing the Iraqis who tortured them. Dana Rohrabacher
I do not want to convince Christians to work for the abolition of war, but rather I want us to live recognizing that in the cross of Christ, war has been abolished. Stanley Hauerwas
War makes strange giant creatures out of us little routine men who inhabit the earth. Ernie Pyle
There is no such thing as inner peace. There is only nervousness or death. Any attempt to prove otherwise constitutes unacceptable behavior. Fran Lebowitz
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
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
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
I have been hunted for twenty-one years. I have literally lived in the saddle. I have never known a day of perfect peace. Frank James
I've always been proud that my name stands for peace. Paloma Picasso
We sincerely hope that south Asian countries will respect and live in amity with each other, and achieve common development, and that south Asia will enjoy peace, stability and prosperity. Li Peng
I don't think I have accomplished what I still have to accomplish. There is one thing that I would like to do, and that's to bring security and peace to the Jewish people. Ariel Sharon
When you think of bike couriers, you think of hyper speed. They get paid by how fast they can drop stuff off. The faster you go, the more chances you take. And the more chances you take, the greater the war between cyclists and cars. Dan Hill
I think that Barack Obama faces a level of divisiveness, and I don't mean on a national level in terms of the North and the South and the Civil War; I really mean just politically. James Spader
As we get closer to the end of this Congress, we should be addressing the urgent needs of the American people - the war in Iraq, affordable health care, a sensible energy policy, quality education for our children, retirement security, and a sound and fair fiscal policy. Chris Van Hollen
Since World War II, inflation - the apparently inexorable rise in the prices of goods and services - has been the bane of central bankers. Ben Bernanke
Peace is purchased from strength. It's not purchased from weakness or unilateral retreats. Benjamin Netanyahu
I have no superhuman powers. If people don't want to make peace, there is nothing I can do. Martti Ahtisaari
Guerrilla war is a kind of war waged by the few but dependent on the support of many. B. H. Liddell Hart
When we analyze this war in a materialistic way and ask when is it going to end and who will be the winner and the loser, it means that we do not see the endgame. Bashir Assad
When your higher self is present, it always promotes peace. Wayne Dyer
As we leave the Moon at Taurus-Littrow, we leave as we came, and God willing, as we shall return, with peace and hope for all mankind. Eugene Cernan
With all the negativity going on in the world right now, people need an escape. When you give them a hit record or a great record, it allows them to escape for at least three to four minutes. They're not thinking bills or economy or immigration or war when you create that kind of ambiance. Pitbull
I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation. War is hell. William Tecumseh Sherman
An Atheist believes that a hospital should be built instead of a church. An atheist believes that deed must be done instead of prayer said. An atheist strives for involvement in life and not escape into death. He wants disease conquered, poverty vanished, war eliminated. Madalyn Murray O'Hair
War is cruelty. There is no use trying to reform it. The crueler it is, the sooner it will be over. William Tecumseh Sherman
The first time I experienced war, I thought the world was ending. Emmanuel Jal
Intervention only works when the people concerned seem to be keen for peace. Nelson Mandela
Where there is righteousness in the heart, there is beauty in the character. When there is beauty in the character, there is harmony in the home. When there is harmony in the home, there is order in the nation. When there is order in the nation, there is peace in the world. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Iraq and Afghanistan will, over time, become stable. But the War on Terror will continue long after Iraq and Afghanistan have had success in standing up their own governments. Peter Pace
Nobody looks perfect. We have to find peace with the way we look and get on with life. Roger Ebert
One little person, giving all of her time to peace, makes news. Many people, giving some of their time, can make history. Peace Pilgrim
The great thing about being a print journalist is that you are permitted to duck. Cameramen get killed while the writers are flat on the floor. A war correspondent for the BBC dedicated his memoir to 50 fallen colleagues, and I guarantee you they were all taking pictures. I am only alive because I am such a chicken. P. J. O'Rourke
As I spread my wings in politics, I discovered many Thatcher voters down south who were the same kind of people who loathed her in Scotland. They were puzzled by the Scots' antipathy, given the Falklands war and the strong militaristic history of the Highlands and elsewhere. Charles Kennedy
In our modern world of interdependent nations, hardly any state can wage war successfully without raising loans and buying war materials of every kind in the markets of other nations. Arthur Henderson
I always wanted to see people's lives transformed from depression and anxiety to joy and peace. David D. Burns
Moreover, war has become a thing potentially so terrible and destructive that it should have been the common aim of statesmen to put an end to it forever. Arthur Henderson
In the report made on behalf of the C.G.T. we affirmed that the Peace Treaty should, in accordance with the spirit of workers' organizations, lay the first foundations of the United States of Europe. Leon Jouhaux
World War II is the greatest drama in human history, the biggest war ever and a true battle of good and evil. I imagine writers will continue to get stories from it, and readers will continue to love them, for many more years. Ken Follett
I made the mistake of thinking that external accomplishments would bring me peace. I thought it was about the job or a book or making a name for myself. Maria Shriver
Of whatsoever number a fleet of ships of war is composed, it is usually divided into three squadrons; and these, if numerous, are again separated into divisions. William Falconer
One does not need buildings, money, power, or status to practice the Art of Peace. Heaven is right where you are standing, and that is the place to train. Morihei Ueshiba
We have to realize that science is a double-edged sword. One edge of the sword can cut against poverty, illness, disease and give us more democracies, and democracies never war with other democracies, but the other side of the sword could give us nuclear proliferation, biogerms and even forces of darkness. Michio Kaku
Nothing can justify war. Isaac Rosenberg
But I would make it unambiguously clear that we are going to withdraw, and if Iraq falls into civil war and if all these unhappy things occur, we're just going to have to accept them. William Odom
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
America has lost the moral high ground with the rest of the world, and we have fewer allies as a result. President Bush and his administration have undermined the war on terror by using tactics outlawed by international treaty and condemned by even our closest friends. John Olver
A photograph can make you feel so many different things. When you look at war photographs of Vietnam, or something similar, it makes you feel anguish and sadness and pain. Then in other moments, when you look at Jackie Kennedy walking down Fifth Avenue, that makes you feel glory and richness. Mario Testino
In war, you win or lose, live or die - and the difference is just an eyelash. Douglas MacArthur
I think the International Criminal Court could be a threat to American security interests, because the prosecutor of the court has enormous discretion in going after war crimes. And the way the Statute of Rome is written, responsibility for war crimes can be taken all the way up the chain of command. John Bolton

I think there's something very dark in the South African psyche. I think we live a lot of the time in a state of a very low-grade civil war; the levels of violence in South Africa are extremely high. In a way, the civil war that never happened is being played out in a covert way, so we live with a lot of very ugly things. Damon Galgut
The Industry's at war. I think it's about control. You can make all of the financial arguments that the industry has been shooting itself in the foot, but it is an industry built on a foundation of ownership and exploitation of intellectual property rights. Don Rose

World War I broke out largely because of an arms race, and World War II because of the lack of an arms race. Herman Kahn

The war in Iraq has been extremely divisive here at home, and has also divided the world community. Adam Schiff

We all want a world without war, without conflict, without human suffering. Jeremy Gilley

We're fighting an enemy that is far different than any we have got before. It's a nontraditional kind of war, and I think we need to step back, recalibrate how we go about protecting our borders and protecting our people, and resetting our position in the world. Jon Huntsman, Jr.

I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones. Albert Einstein
There seems to be a sense in the British media that prime ministers enjoy going to war. They do not.

War on the other hand is such a terrible thing, that no man, especially a Christian man, has the right to assume the responsibility of starting it. Leo Tolstoy

A new tower rises above the New York skyline, al Qaeda is on the path to defeat, and Osama bin Laden is dead. Barack Obama

'Life's That Way' was an extraordinarily difficult book to write, because it wasn't written as a book. It was written as a journal of events that were happening as I wrote it, without the space or time either to digest or analyze those events and without the hindsight and peace that writing in the aftermath would have provided. Jim Beaver
Because Ernest Lawrence's award came in the war years, I had the unusual opportunity of attending his Nobel Prize presentation ceremony. Luis Walter Alvarez

Democracies are poor breeding grounds for terrorism and war. Adam Schiff

My father belongs to the generation that fought the war in the 1940s. When I was a kid my father told me stories - not so many, but it meant a lot to me. I wanted to know what happened then, to my father's generation. It's a kind of inheritance, the memory of it. Haruki Murakami
I am against all war. Sophia Loren
In a war everybody always knows all about Switzerland, in peace times it is just Switzerland but in war time it is the only country that everybody has confidence in, everybody. Gertrude Stein

And we broadcast tapes sent to us from Americans against the war. These were most effective I believe. Hanoi Hannah

Sri Lanka is an island off the coast of India. There's two ethnicities there; one the Sinhalese, which is the majority and the government, and the minority, who are the Tamils. That's where I'm from. And my lifetime sort of began there; I spent 10 years, and I was there during when the war started and fled as a refugee to England. M.I.A.
The law of the survival of the fittest led inevitably to the survival and predominance of the men who were effective in war and who loved it because they were effective. Elihu Root
All War Departments are now Defense Departments. This is all part of the doubletalk of our time. The aggressor is always on the other side. George Wald
The '50s in general are written off as a boring decade following the turmoil of the Second World War and its immediate aftermath - the postwar Labour government, the cold war, the arrival of the New Look in fashion, etc. But I remember it as a very exciting time - a pioneering, rule-breaking time, especially for the young. Lynne Reid Banks
Social peace requires reciprocity. Ralph Peters
Moviewise, I would love to make the story of princess Erendira. She was a 16 year old princess/warrior who led her tribe in war against the Spanish around 1513. She almost defeated them, and the Tarascans were the only tribe the Aztecs couldn't defeat. Tamara Feldman
It is not only that Germany has been defeated in the war, Kaiser Wilhelm's Germany was defeated. C. L. R. James

And so, the youngsters you have today, even though there are far fewer of them - in World War II 16.5 million men and women in uniform, today roughly a million in uniform in spite of the fact that the country is almost twice as large a population as we had in World War II. Oliver North
We have started something called the Corporate Services Corps. Now, it was modeled after the Peace Corps from long ago, the 1960s. And the idea was in this modern day and age, how do you get IBM'ers around the world to be global citizens? You know, globally aware, contribute, understand how to work in that environment, but do it on scale. Ginni Rometty
An asteroid or a supervolcano could certainly destroy us, but we also face risks the dinosaurs never saw: An engineered virus, nuclear war, inadvertent creation of a micro black hole, or some as-yet-unknown technology could spell the end of us. Elon Musk

The first two Prime Ministers whom I served, Ted Heath and Margaret Thatcher drew strikingly different lessons from the Second World War. Douglas Hurd
To most people in the U.K., indeed throughout Western Europe, space exploration is primarily perceived as 'what NASA does'. This perception is - in many respects - a valid one. Superpower rivalry during the Cold War ramped up U.S. and Soviet space efforts to a scale that Western Europe had no motive to match. Martin Rees
Peace comes when you talk to the guy you most hate. And that's where the courage of a leader comes, because when you sit down with your enemy, you as a leader must already have very considerable confidence from your own constituency. Desmond Tutu
As peacemakers, we must resist all the powers of war and destruction and proclaim that peace is the divine gift offered to all who affirm life. Resistance means saying 'No' to all the forces of death, wherever they may be. Henri Nouwen

My hope is that gays will be running the world, because then there would be no war. Just a greater emphasis on military apparel. Roseanne Barr
Whether one believes in evolution, intelligent design, or Divine Creation, one thing is certain. Since the beginning of history, human beings have been at war with each other, under the pretext of religion, ideology, ethnicity and other reasons. And no civilization has ever willingly given up its most powerful weapons. Mohamed ElBaradei
Morality binds people into groups. It gives us tribalism, it gives us genocide, war, and politics. But it also gives us heroism, altruism, and sainthood. Jonathan Haidt
That's Anil's path. She grows up in Sri Lanka, goes and gets educated abroad, and through fate or chance gets brought back by the Human Rights Commission to investigate war crimes. Michael Ondaatje

'Does the Sixth Commandment prohibit war?' Rodney Stark
The forces that are driving mankind toward unity and peace are deep-seated and powerful. They are material and natural, as well as moral and intellectual. Arthur Henderson

If we are lucky, and George W. Bush is right, we are about to witness the War of the Happy Iraqis. Howard Fineman
I go into Daunt Books in Marylebone every couple of weeks. My wife Sara demolishes books, but I only buy stuff occasionally. I like boys' things, spies and the Cold War. Noel Gallagher
There's a basis for the war, historically, in the 'Hunger Games,' which would be the third servile war, which was Spartacus' war, where you have a man who is a slave who is then turned into a gladiator who broke out of the gladiator school and led a rebellion and then became the face of the war.

I'm a warrior at heart; I'm an ex-Navy Seal. I'm too old to wage war anymore, and so now I wage it mentally. And so I find politics very stimulating; it's war without guns. Jesse Ventura
Our platform calls for a balanced deficit reduction plan where the wealthy pay their fair share. And when your country is in a costly war, with our soldiers sacrificing abroad and our nation facing a debt crisis at home, being asked to pay your fair share isn't class warfare - it's patriotism. Cory Booker
In a war, no matter the outcome of a certain skirmish or battle, the winner is the party whose attitudes, behaviors and preoccupations come to dominate the postwar landscape. By this measure, the outcome of the gender wars, if wars they were, is clear: women won. Marcus Buckingham
WikiLeaks published the Afghan War Logs and U.S. diplomatic cables stolen from a classified network by an Army private. Rebecca MacKinnon

Bayard Taylor
If I could cause world peace by taking someone out to lunch, I'd go, 'Well, war isn't that terrible.' Gilbert Gottfried

I would say that the war correspondent gets more drinks, more girls, better pay, and greater freedom than the soldier, but at this stage of the game, having the freedom to choose his spot and being allowed to be a coward and not be executed for it is his torture. Robert Capa
When the young Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret were growing up, that was at it's height and the War cemented that with photographs of the Royal Family having breakfast together and so on, by pinning their reputation so firmly on that particular issue. Anthony Holden
The next war... may well bury Western civilization forever. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Total war is no longer war waged by all members of one national community against all those of another. It is total... because it may well involve the whole world. Jean-Paul Sartre
For some reason, lots of terrible things start here and then spread. The Cold War was one. It didn't start in Berlin - it started in Athens in December 1944; the contagion in the eurozone started here in 2010. We are perfectly capable as Europeans of messing things up unnecessarily. Yanis Varoufakis
Diplomacy in general does not resolve conflicts. Wars end not due to peace processes, but due to one side giving up. Daniel Pipes

When I arrived in America, I experienced serious culture shock. For someone with a religious upbringing, the 1960s were an extremely difficult time.

Israel was seen as having demonstrated unmistakably it wanted peace, and the reason it wasn't available, achievable was because Arafat wouldn't accept it. Dennis Ross

Let me just say: Peace to you, if you're willing to fight for it. Fred Hampton
We've been in a war and a recession. That's why acccent colors with yellow and purple are popular. They're optimistic and flirty and happy colors. David Bromstad
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. John Stuart Mill
The debate analysis in the media is rampant with contest analogies of war, baseball, boxing, football; you name it. Any testosterone contest imaginable is fair game. Jonathan Raymond

A man who's never seen war is like a woman who's never given birth - soft in the head. Andrei Platonov

War zones are dangerous, protests can be violent, also, natural disasters are difficult to cover, so there are going to be risks. Kate Adie

Communism is a religion that is inspired, directed and motivated by the Devil himself who has declared war against Almighty God. Billy Graham

Dad could talk about peace and love out loud to the world, but he could never show it to the people who supposedly meant the most to him: his wife and son.

The fact is that war films, by their very nature, are pitched at a high dramatic range. Mark Boal
Hurtling the Pentagon into an unprecedented budgetary meltdown is horrifically irresponsible. Obama doesn't care. This is war - not against the Taliban, but war against the GOP.

The outbreak of the war found my wife and me in Switzerland, where we were taking a cure. Fritz Kreisler
