Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace.Author: Buddha, Source: unknown
it will not be by sword or gun that this kingdom will roll onAuthor: Joseph Smith Jr, Source: Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith
I wish to impress them with the necessity of treating the Indians with kindness, and to refrain from harboring that revengeful, vindictive feeling that many indulge in. I am convinced that as long as we harbor in us feelings towards them, so long they will be our enemies, and the Lord will suffer them to afflict us. But now their game has gone, and they are left to starve. It is our duty to feed them. The Lord has given us ability to cultivate the ground and reap bountiful harvests. We have an abundance of food for ourselves and for the stranger. It is our duty to feed these poor ignorant Indians; we are living on their possessions and at their homes. Do we wish to do right? You answer, yes. Then let the Lamanites come back to their homes, where they were born and brought up. This is the land that they and their fathers have walked over and called their own; and they have just as good a right to call it theirs to-day as any people have to call any land their own. The Indians are far oftener, if not always, when differences of education and habits are included, more sinned against than sinners.Author: Brigham Young, Source: Journal of Discourses 11:26364
Therefore, renounce war and proclaim peace, and seek diligently to turn the hearts of the children to their fathers, and the hearts of the fathers to the children; and again, the hearts of the Jews unto the prophets, and the prophets unto the Jews; lest I come and smite the whole earth with a curse, and all flesh be consumed before meAuthor: God, Source: D&C 98:1617
When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, "Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!Author: Martin Luther King, Jr, Source: I have a dream 1963
Let us not wallow in the valley of despair. I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal." I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slaveowners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood. I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state, sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice. I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today.Author: Martin Luther King, Jr, Source: "I Have a Dream" 1963
If you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy. Then he becomes your partner.Author: Nelson Mandela, Source: unknown

Can we recommend unconditional pacifism or unilateral disarmament for any people who are not otherwise righteous and therefore are unable to rely on the Lord to bless them? Would the citizens of Sodom have been spared if they had been pacifists but otherwise unrighteous?Author: Neal A. Maxwell, Source: Sermons not Spoken
When Mother Teresa was asked to join in a march against war, will you be there? She said no. But if you will have a march for peace I will be there. A war on terrorism is feeding the very monster, terrorism, that we are trying to ameliorate. What we have got to do is flip it over. Ernest Holmes had a wonderful saying - "Wouldn't it be wonderful if a group of people arrived on earth that were for something and against nothing." Be for peace, not against war.Author: Dr. Michael Bechwith - author of "The Secret", Source: http://www.backyardprofessor.com/the_backyard_professor/2007/0...
