Violence Quotes

If Buddhism preaches nonviolence,why is there so much political violence in Sri Lanka today?

Stanley Jeyaraja Tambiah

If we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people to not kill each other? Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want.

Mother Teresa

Poverty is the worst form of violence.

Mahatma Gandhi

How a society channels male aggression is one of the greatest questions as to whether that society will survive. That's why I am not against violence in the media, I am against the glorification of immoral violence

Dennis Prager

All violence is the result of people tricking themselves into believing that their pain derives from other people and that consequently those people deserve to be punished.

Marshall Rosenberg

An unjust law is itself a species of violence. Arrest for its breach is more so.

Mohandas K. Gandhi

Over the last decade or so 'wars' have been proclaimed, in turn, on teen pregnancy, dropping out, drugs, and most recently violence. The trouble with such campaigns, though, is that they come too late, after the targeted problem has reached epidemic proportions and taken firm root in the lives of the young. They are crisis intervention, the equivalent of solving a problem by sending an ambulance to the rescue rather than giving an inoculation that would ward off the disease in the first place. Instead of more such 'wars,' what we need is to follow the logic of prevention, offering our children the skills for facing life that will increase their chances of avoiding any and all of these fates

Daniel Goldman

A majority of Americans oppose partial-birth abortion, and Judge Hamilton's decision flies in the face of Congress passing and President Bush signing legislation banning such horrible acts of violence.

Marc Racicot

The violence done us by others is often less painful than that which we do to ourselves

FranÁois de la Rochefoucauld

It is better to be violent, if there is violence in our hearts, than to put on the cloak of nonviolence to cover impotence.

Mahatma Gandhi

Victory attained by violence is tantamount to a defeat, for it is momentary.

Mahatma Gandhi

There is a violence that liberates, and a violence that enslaves; there is a violence that is moral and a violence that is immoral.

Benito Mussolini

Power and violence are opposites; where the one rules absolutely, the other is absent. Violence appears where power is in jeopardy, but left to its own course it ends in power's disappearance.

Hannah Arendt

If the anti-abortion movement took a tenth of the energy they put into noisy theatrics and devoted it to improving the lives of children who have been born into lives of poverty, violence, and neglect, they could make a world shine.

Michael Jay Tucker

Liberty is to be free from restraint and violence from others
