A Quote by Pope Pius XII on achievement, destruction, difficulty, evolution, experience, justice, men, revolution, salvation, and violence

Salvation and justice are not to be found in revolution, but in evolution through concord. Violence has ever achieved only destruction, not construction; the kindling of passions, not their pacification; the accumulation of hate and destruction, not the reconciliation of the contending parties; and it has reduced men and parties to the difficult task of building slowly after sad experience on the ruins of discord.

Pope Pius XII (1876 - 1958)
