Peace Quote Quotes

Peace is not only better than war, but infinitely more arduous.

George Bernard Shaw

Never has there been a good war or a bad peace

Benjamin Franklin

I was a peaceful sedentary man, a lover of a quiet life, with no appetite for perils and commotions. But I was beginning to realise that I was very obstinate.

John Buchan, 1st Baron Tweedsmuir

I ask no more from mortals Than your beautiful face implies, The beauty the artist beholding Interprets and sanctifies. Who says that men have fallen, That life is wretched and rough? I say, the world is lovely, And that loveliness is enough. So my doubting days are ended, And the labour of life seems clear; And life hums deeply around me, Just like the murmur here, And quickens the sense of living, And shapes me for peace and storm, And dims my eyes with gladness When it glides into colour and form!

Robert Williams Buchanan

Patrick Henry

War is not its own end, except in some catastrophic slide into absolute damnation. It's peace that's wanted. Some better peace than the one you started with.

Phillip Emmons Isaac Bonewits

You can't build a peaceful world on empty stomachs and human misery.

A sane being wished for peace and serenity, not to be the mortar in which the ingredients of destiny are finely ground.

But first a hush of peace, a soundless calm descends; The struggle of distress and fierce impatience ends Mute music sooths my breast unuttered harmony That I could never dream till earth was lost to me.

Emily Jane Bront

A single face turned upward toward all Time One flesh, one ecstasy, one peace.

Ray Douglas Bradbury
