Inspirational Quotes on Peace, Hatred, Violence and War

“Only together will we create a culture that supersedes the cycles of battle and retreat – not through our fear of war but through mastering a superior way to live. The seed of this culture is the determination within individuals, and then small groups and communities, to devote our lives to the greatest vision of all time: not wait for a savior one day to deliver us; not to wait for a government to pass truly just laws; not to wait for a revolution to right the wrongs of a cruel world; and not to mount a crusade to overpower some distant source of evil beyond ourselves. Each of us, singly and with all the others, is answerable for creating joy through the way our lives unfold, here and now. And once this purpose becomes primary, we can turn to the endless job of bringing wellbeing to others, justice and integrity to our government, and instituting constructive programs for change here and elsewhere. When inspired in this way, we don’t have to wait for the final outcome before we’re nourished. There is no finer way to live or die.” – Arthur Egendorf, Healing from the War

“Why, of course, the people don’t want war.. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship.. voice or not voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.” – Hermann Goering, Adolf Hitler’s designated successor, in Nuremberg Diary

“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense.” – Dwight Eisenhower
