In your statement you assert that our , even though peaceful, must be condemned because they precipitate . But is this a logical assertion? Isn't this like condemning a robbed man because his possession ofprecipitated theact of robbery? Isn't this like condemningbecause his unswerving commitment toand his philosophical inquiries precipitated the act by the misguided populace in which they made him drink hemlock? Isn't this like condemningbecause his unique -consciousness and never-ceasing devotion to 's will precipitated the evil act of crucifixion? We must come to see that, as the federal courts have consistently affirmed, it isto urge an individual to cease his efforts to gain his basic constitutionalbecause the quest may precipitate violence. Society must protect the robbed and punish the robber. .

#4890 Saddam Hussein

Throughout the past glorious ten months you have been fighting as though you were at a wedding. You are obviously not for evil but for good, fraternity and peace. You are the sons of a nation that has offered the values of justice to humanity and fought evil and corruption. .

Dwight D. Eisenhower Quotes about peace
#5183 Mark Twain

The citizen who thinks he sees that the commonwealth's political clothes are worn out, and yet holds his peace and does not agitate for a new suit, is disloyal, he is a traitor. That he may be the only one who thinks he sees this decay, does not excuse him: it is his duty to agitate anyway, and it is the duty of others to vote him down if they do not see the matter as he does. .

Mark Twain Quotes about peace
#5196 Mark Twain

The Jew is not a disturber of the peace of any country. Even his enemies will concede that. He is not a loafer, he is not a sot, he is not noisy, he is not a brawler nor a rioter, he is not quarrelsome. In the statistics of crime his presence is conspicuously rare — in all countries. With murder and other crimes of violence he has but little to do: he is a stranger to the hangman. In the police court's daily long roll of "assaults" and "drunk and disorderlies" his name seldom appears ... .

Mark Twain Quotes about peace

Pierre Trudeau Quotes about peace
#6228 E. B. White

I believe television is going to be the test of the modern world, and that in this new opportunity to see beyond the range of our vision we shall discover either a new and unbearable disturbance of the general peace or a saving radiance in the sky. We shall stand or fall by television — of that I am quite sure. .

E. B. White Quotes about peace
#6314 Henry David Thoreau

If a thousand [citizens] were not to pay their tax-bills this year, that would not be a violent and bloody measure, as it would be to pay them, and enable the State to commit violence and shed innocent blood. This is, in fact, the definition of a peaceable revolution, if any such is possible. .

Henry David Thoreau Quotes about peace
#6403 Henry David Thoreau

I do not wish to kill nor to be killed, but I can foresee circumstances in which both these things would be by me unavoidable. We preserve the so-called peace of our community by deeds of petty violence every day. Look at the policeman's billy and handcuffs! Look at the jail! Look at the gallows! Look at the chaplain of the regiment! We are hoping only to live safely on the outskirts of this provisional army. So we defend ourselves and our hen-roosts, and maintain slavery. I know that the mass of my countrymen think that the only righteous use that can be made of Sharp's rifles and revolvers is to fight duels with them, when we are insulted by other nations, or to hunt Indians, or shoot fugitive slaves with them, or the like. I think that for once the Sharp's rifles and the revolvers were employed in a righteous cause. The tools were in the hands of one who could use them. .

Henry David Thoreau Quotes about peace
#6623 William Ellery Channing

A genuine, enlightened patriot discerns, that the welfare of his own country is involved in the general progress of society; and, in the character of a patriot, as well as of a Christian, he rejoices in the liberty and prosperity of other communities, and is anxious to maintain with them the relations of peace and amity. .

William Ellery Channing Quotes about peace
#6821 Adlai Stevenson

The early years of the United Nations have been difficult ones, but what did we expect? That peace would drift down from the skies like soft snow? That there would be no ordeal, no anguish, no testing, in this greatest of all human undertakings? .

Adlai Stevenson Quotes about peace
#6895 Adlai Stevenson

The journey of a thousand leagues begins with a single step. So we must never neglect any work of peace within our reach, however small. .

Adlai Stevenson Quotes about peace
#7146 Adolf Hitler

Sporting chivalrous contest helps knit the bonds of peace between nations. Therefore may the Olympic flame never expire. .

Adolf Hitler Quotes about peace

#8224 H. L. Mencken

The New Deal began, like the Salvation Army, by promising to save humanity. It ended, again like the Salvation Army, by running flop-houses and disturbing the peace. .

H. L. Mencken Quotes about peace
#8322 Richard Nixon

Any nation that decides the only way to achieve peace is through peaceful means is a nation that will soon be a piece of another nation. .

Richard Nixon Quotes about peace
#8362 Richard Nixon

Let us build a structure of peace in the world in which the weak are as safe as the strong — in which each respects the right of the other to live by a different system — in which those who would influence others will do so by the strength of their ideas, and not by the force of their arms. Let us accept that high responsibility not as a burden, but gladly — gladly because the chance to build such a peace is the noblest endeavor in which a nation can engage; gladly, also, because only if we act greatly in meeting our responsibilities abroad will we remain a great Nation, and only if we remain a great Nation will we act greatly in meeting our challenges at home. .

Richard Nixon Quotes about peace

If I must choose between righteousness and peace I choose righteousness. .

Theodore Roosevelt Quotes about peace
#10775 Romeo LeBlanc

"We send our [peacekeepers] off to some disputed zone, full of local intrigue and power blocs and uncertainty and danger, and they are supposed to save lives not with their weapons, but through their competence and their character. And they do it." .
