Mahatma Gandhi

Bob Marley

Even today we raise our hand against our brother... We have perfected our weapons, our conscience has fallen asleep, and we have sharpened our ideas to justify ourselves as if it were normal we continue to sow destruction, pain, death. Violence and war lead only to death.
Pope Francis

The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only object of good government.
Thomas Jefferson

I went on national television - went on national television and said. 'I'm sick and tired of people saying that taking drugs is a sickness. When you put something of your own free will in your own body knowing that it's harmful against the body, it's against the law and all it will do is lead you down the path of destruction, that is a weakness.'
Tommy Lasorda
