Blues For Peace

Martin Luther King Picture, Martin Luther King Jr Picture

Peace Quotes

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, "We must build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear... That old law about "an eye for an eye" leaves everybody blind... The time is always right to do the right thing... Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal. (Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.)

- John and Yoko

There is no way to peace. Peace is the way.
- A. J. Muste

Since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that the defenses of peace must be constructed.

Peace is more precious than a piece of land.
- Anwar Sadat

The peace makers shall be called the children of God.

How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good tidings, who publishes peace.

If you want to make peace, you don't talk to your friends. You talk to your enemies.
- Moshe Dayan

Every kind of peaceful cooperation among men is primarily based on mutual trust and only secondarily on institutions such as courts of justice and police.
- Albert Einstein

Think not forever of yourselves, O Chiefs, nor of your own generation. Think of continuing generations of our families, think of our grandchildren and of those yet unborn, whose faces are coming from beneath the ground.
- T. S. Eliot

Nothing can bring you peace but yourself; nothing, but the triumph of principles.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

There never was a good war or a bad peace.
- Benjamin Franklin

It is easier to lead men to combat, stirring up their passion, than to restrain them and direct them toward the patient labors of peace.
- Andre Gide

Social advance depends as much upon the process through which it is secured as upon the result itself..
-Jane Addams

Peace and friendship with all mankind is our wisest policy, and I wish we may be permitted to pursue it.
- Thomas Jefferson

Yes, we are all different. Different customs, different foods, different mannerisms, different languages, but not so different that we cannot get along with one another. If we will disagree without being disagreeable.
- J. Martin Kohe

Nonviolence is the supreme law of life.
- Indian Proverb

Peace with a club in hand is war.
- Portugese Proverb

We must build a new world, a far better world -- one in which the eternal dignity of man is respected.
- Harry S. Truman

Non-violence leads to the highest ethics,which is the goal of all evolution.Until we stop harming all other living beings , we are still savages.
- Thomas A. Edison

They are not following dharma who resort to violence to achieve their purpose. But those who lead others through nonviolent means, knowing right and wrong, may be called guardians of the dharma.
- Buddha

Violence does, in truth, recoil upon the violent, and the schemer falls into the pit which he digs for another.
- Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.
- Salvor Hardin


A man is the sum of his actions, of what he has done, of what he can do, Nothing else.

We must become the change we want to see.

To believe in something, and not to live it, is dishonest.

When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible but in the end, they always fall -- think of it, ALWAYS.

Non-violence is the article of faith.

It is easy enough to be friendly to one's friends. But to befriend the one who regards himself as your enemy is the quintessence of true religion. The other is mere business.

Hatred can be overcome only by love.

I first learned the concepts of non-violence in my marriage.

Poverty is the worst form of violence.

An eye for eye only ends up making the whole world blind.

Unity to be real must stand the severest strain without breaking.

Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.


There has to be evil so that good can prove its purity above it.

When one has the feeling of dislike for evil, when one feels tranquil, one finds pleasure in listening to good teachings; when one has these feelings and appreciates them, one is free of fear.

Hatred does not cease by hatred, but only by love; this is the eternal rule.

We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, We make our world.


I have three precious things which I hold fast and prize. The first is gentleness; the second is frugality; the third is humility, which keeps me from putting myself before others. Be gentle and you can be bold; be frugal and you can be liberal; avoid putting yourself before others and you can become a leader among men.

Nothing in the world is more flexible and yielding than water. Yet when it attacks the firm and the strong, none can withstand it, because they have no way to change it. So the flexible overcome the adamant, the yielding overcome the forceful. Everyone knows this, but no one can do it.

The softest things in the world overcome the hardest things in the world.

"Wheresoever the sun shines, the wind blows, there is an ear to hear, and a mind to conceive, there let the precepts of life be made known, let the maxims of truth be honoured and obeyed, let there be music, and let there be Peace". Dave Johnston, guitar player
