Five enemies of peace inhabit with us--avarice, ambition, envy, anger, and pride if these were to be banished, we should infallibly enjoy perpetual peace.
- Francesco Petrarch
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace where there is hatred, let me sow love where there is injury, pardon where there is doubt, faith where there is despair, hope where there is darkness, light and where there is sadness, joy.
Everybody in this life has their challenges and difficulties. That is part of our mortal test.... Peace comes through hope.
- James E. Faust
Are these perilous times? They are. But we can have peace in our hearts and in our homes.
- Gordon B. Hinkley, Speech given in October 2001
Swiftly arose and spread around me the peace and knowledge that pass all the argument of the earth, And I know that the hand of God is the promise of my own, And I know that the spirit of God is the brother of my own, And that all the men ever born are also my brothers, and the women my sisters and lovers, And that a kelson of the creation is love.
- Walt Whitman
A peace that comes from fear and not from the heart is the opposite of peace.
The world must be made safe for democracy. Its peace must be planted upon the tested foundations of political liberty.
- Woodrow Wilson, Speech to Congress, Apr. 2, 1917
We merely want to live in peace with all the world, to trade with them, to commune with them, to learn from their culture as they may learn from ours, so that the products of our toil may be used for our schools and our roads and our churches and not for guns and planes and tanks and ships of war.
- Dwight D. Eisenhower
