“They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore.” — Isaiah 2:4 & Micah 4:3.
A truly free society must not include a “peace” which oppresses us. We must learn on our own terms what peace and freedom mean together. There can be no peace if there is social injustice and suppression of human rights, because external and internal peace are inseparable. Peace.is not just the absence of mass destruction, but a positive internal and external condition in which people are free so that they can grow to their full potential.
Petra Karin Kelly
If everyone demanded peace, instead of another television set, then there’d be peace. John Lennon
If you want to make peace, you don’t talk to your friends. You talk to your enemies.

There is no time left for anything but to make peacework a dimension of our every waking activity.
There is no trust more sacred than the one the world holds with children. There is no duty more important than ensuring that their rights are respected, that their welfare is protected, that their lives are free from fear and want and that they grow up in peace. Kofi Annan
Peace is the only battle worth waging.
We know how to organize warfare, but do we know how to act when confronted with peace?Jacques-Yves Cousteau
Peace comes from being able to contribute the best that we have, and all that we are, toward creating a world that supports everyone. But it is also securing the space for others to contribute the best that they have and all that they are.
