If I ruled the world
I believe that to meet the challenges of our times, human beings will have to develop a greater sense of universal responsibility. Each of us must learn to work not just for oneself, one's own family or nation, but for the benefit of all humankind. Universal responsibility is the key to human survival. It is the best foundation for world peace.
H.H. The Dalai Lama
The real and lasting victories are those of peace, and not of war
Ralph Waldo Emerson
One is left with the horrible feeling now that war settles nothing; that to win a war is as disastrous as to lose one.
Nothing is more precious than peace. Peace is the most basic starting point for the advancement of humankind.
Peace is the marriage of the people and the planet, with all attendant vows.
Better than a thousand hollow words is one word that brings peace.
There is no time left for anything but to make peacework a dimension of our every waking activity.
If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.
One day we must come to see that peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but that it is a means by which we arrive at that goal. We must pursue peaceful ends through peaceful means.
Martin Luther King, Jr
We look forward to the time when the Power of Love will replace the Love of Power. Then will our world know the blessings of peace.
Human Beings, indeed all sentient beings, have the right to pursue happiness and live in peace and freedom.
XIVth Dalai Lama
Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding.
We need to decide that we will not go to war, whatever reason is conjured up by the politicians or the media, because war in our time is always indiscriminate, a war against innocents, a war against children.
