Peace Quotes

“Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding. You cannot subjugate a nation forcibly unless you wipe out every man, woman, and child. Unless you wish to use such drastic measures, you must find a way of settling your disputes without resort to arms.” -Albert Einstein

“Peace is not solely a matter of military or technical problems– it is primarily a problem of politics and people. And unless man can match his strides in weaponry and technology with equal strides in social and political development, our great strength, like that of the dinosaur, will become incapable of proper control– and like the dinosaur vanish from the earth.” -John F. Kennedy

“If you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy. Then he becomes your partner.” -Nelson Mandela

“The day the power of love overrules the love of power, the world will know peace.” -Mahatma Ghandi

“Peace will not come out of a clash of arms but out of justice lived and done by unarmed nations in the face of odds.” -Mahatma Ghandi

“World peace must develop from inner peace. Peace is not just mere absence of violence. Peace is, I think, the manifestation of human compassion.” -Dalai Lama XIV

“Peace is not the absence of conflict but the presence of creative alternatives for responding to conflict — alternatives to passive or aggressive responses, alternatives to violence.”  -Dorothy Thompson
