Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of humans as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is not safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.
- Helen Keller
If you want to make peace, you don't talk to your friends. You talk to your enemies.
- Moshe Dayan
I destroy my enemies when I make them my friends.

Peace is the work of justice indirectly, in so far as justice removes the obstacles to peace; but it is the work of charity (love) directly, since charity, according to its very notion, causes peace.
- Thomas Aquinas
The price of greatness is responsibility.
- Winston Churchill
Out of clutter, find simplicity. From discord, find harmony. In the middle of difficulty, lies opportunity.
- Albert Einstein
The people who burned witches at the stake never...thought of their act as violence...[but rather] as an act of divinely mandated righteousness. The same can be said of most of the violence we humans have ever committed.

We have a common oppressor, a common exploiter and a common discriminator. But once we realize that we have a common enemy, then we can unite--on the basis of what we have in common.
- Malcolm X
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.
Murder and capital punishment are not opposites that cancel one another, but similars that breed their kind. It is the deed that teaches not the name we give it.
- George Bernard Shaw
The...human race is characterized by efforts to get along much more than by violent disputes, although it's the latter that make the history books. Violence is actually exceptional. The human race has survived because of cooperation.
- Gerard Vanderhaar
Public sentiment is everything. With public sentiment, nothing can fail; without it nothing can succeed.
- Abraham Lincoln
The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who, in times of great moral crisis, maintain their neutrality.
Mankind must put an end to war, or war will put an end to mankind.
