war

A Quote by Richard Milhouse Nixon on war, america, and corruption

Never has so much military and economic and diplomatic power been used so ineffectively, and if after all of this time, and all of this sacrifice, and all of this support, there is still no end in sight, then I say the time has come for the American people to turn to new leadership not tied to the mistakes and policies of the past.

Richard Nixon (1913 - 1994)

What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of liberty or democracy?

A Quote by Mustafa Kemal Atatürk on war and peace

in

Heroes who shed their blood and lost their lives! You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and Mehmets to us where they lie side by side here in this country of ours. You, the mothers, who sent their sons from far away countries wipe away your tears; your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace. After having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well. (A tribute to those ANZACs who died in Gallipoli.)

A Quote by Claude Anshin Thomas on peace, politics, war, way of life, and inner peace

Peace is not an idea.  Peace is not a political movement, not a theory or a dogma.  Peace is a way of life: living mindfully in the present moment . . .  It is not a question of politics but of actions.  It is not a matter of improving a political system or even taking care of homeless people alone.  These are valuable but will not alone end war and suffering.  We must simply stop the endless wars that rage within . . .  Imagine, if everyone stopped the war in themselves -- there would be no seeds from which war could grow.

A Quote by Mr. on war, peace, declare peace, history, life, witness, and mr prophet

History has taught us, there is no way to win a war. No matter how badly you crush them, those you hate shall rise once more. Yet, we have witnessed this same scene being played time after time. Let us end this vicious cycle and take a positive step in the name of life. Declare Peace.
