Peace Quotations

Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.
Albert Einstein

To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.
Buddha

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

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

We make war that we may live in peace.
