Peace is not the product of a victory or a command. It has no finishing line, no final deadline, no fixed definition of achievement. Peace is a never-ending process, the work of many decisions.
Peace cannot be secured entirely by commercial interests, military alliances, general disarmement or mutual treaties, unless the spirit for peace is there in the minds and will of the people. This is a matter of education.
Nothing could be worse than the fear that one had given up too soon and left one unexpended effort which might have saved the world.

Peace starts with a smile.
Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained through understanding.
