Some famous Peace Quotes

To achieve global peace, we must not only stop fighting each other but also stop destroying the natural world.~Dr. Jane Goodall

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. ~William Ewart Gladstone

If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other. ~Mother Teresa

Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained through understanding. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

We make war that we may live in peace. ~Aristotle

Let us love the world to peace. ~Quoted in The Angels' Little Instruction Book by Eileen Elias Freeman, 1994

I take it that what all men are really after is some form of, perhaps only some formula of, peace. ~James Conrad

The real differences around the world today are not between Jews and Arabs; Protestants and Catholics; Muslims, Croats, and Serbs. The real differences are between those who embrace peace and those who would destroy it; between those who look to the future and those who cling to the past; between those who open their arms and those who are determined to clench their fists. ~William J. Clinton, 1997

You cannot shake hands with a clenched fist. ~Attributed to both Golda Meir and Indira Gandhi

Five great enemies to peace inhabit with us: avarice, ambition, envy, anger, and pride. If those enemies were to be banished, we should infallibly enjoy perpetual peace. ~Francesco Petrarch!

Yes, we love peace, but we are not willing to take wounds for it, as we are for war. ~John Andrew Holmes, Wisdom in Small Doses

An eye for eye only ends up making the whole world blind. ~Mahatma Gandhi

There never was a good war, or a bad peace.~Benjamin Franklin

He is happiest, be he king or peasant who finds peace in his home.~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Lord, bid war's trumpet cease;
Fold the whole earth in peace.
~Oliver Wendell Holmes

We have all taken risks in the making of war. Isn't it time that we should take risks to secure peace? ~J. Ramsay MacDonald

In the name of peace
They waged the wars
Ain't they got no shame
~Nikki Giovanni

Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon. A happiness weapon. A beauty bomb. And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one. It would explode high in the air - explode softly - and send thousands, millions, of little parachutes into the air. Floating down to earth - boxes of Crayolas. And we wouldn't go cheap, either - not little boxes of eight. Boxes of sixty-four, with the sharpener built right in. With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest. And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with imagination. ~Robert Fulghum

A warless world will come as men develop warless hearts. ~Charles Wesley Burns

Peace and friendship with all mankind is our wisest policy, and I wish we may be permitted to pursue it.~ William Shakespeare

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace; where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.~ St Francis of Assisi

what is your favourite PEACE quote ?

One of mine is "Peace begins with a smile." ~Mother Teresa
I'll leave with this

Hello again,
I have just tried to install Mr. Linky into my peace post.

Please if you get a chance I would be honored to share the link love from me to you.

Jientje said...

What a great post you made for this subject! I love the quotes.

You asked me about Haloscan, well Haloscan is still there because I'm afraid to upload anything else anymore. The day I installed Haloscan I lost all of my Blogger comments! Lucky for me I still had the e-mails, and I was able to copy paste most of them back, but still.I'm afraid if I change again, that might happen again, and I'm very fond of my comments, so ...
Besides, there will be 200 posts on my blog soon, that's a hell of a lot more comments than when my blog was one week old!
I would have liked Comment Luv' much more, but I'm afraid to install it!

I love the lyric on your Peace Globe … in fact it’s at the top of my sidebar at Sacred Ruminations all the time! Looks like you and I are on similar wave-lengths. I used your 2nd & 3rd on my Peace Globes and shared a variety of quotes in my Blog Blast for Peace at Small Reflections but went with different globe and info at Sacred Ruminations this morning. I hope you’ll find time to visit both.
Hugs and blessings,
