While the meanings of war and peace
Have been turned upside-down
And the public is being lied to
By treacherous suited clowns…
Lets hold our hands together
And refresh our memories
Of what our beloved heroes
Once said about war and peace:
1. Mahatma Gandhi
The cry for peace will be a cry in the wilderness, so long as the spirit of non-violence does not dominate millions of men and women.
2. Eleanor Roosevelt
We have to face the fact that either all of us are going to die together or we are going to learn to live together and if we are to live together we have to talk.
3. Issac Asimov
Violence is the first refuge of the incompetent.
4. Herbert Hoover
Older men declare war. But it’s the youth who must fight and die!
5. Jeannette Rankin, First Woman Member of Congress
You can no more win a war than you can win an earthquake.
6. General Omar Bradley
In war there is no prize for the runner-up.
7. Mahatma Gandhi
Victory attained by violence is tantamount to a defeat, for it is momentary.
8. Albert Einstein
The pioneers of a warless world are the youth that refuse military service.
9. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Our only hope today lies in our ability to recapture the revolutionary spirit and go into a sometimes hostile world declaring eternal hostility to poverty, racism, and militarism.
10. Ernest Hemingway
They wrote in the old days that it is sweet and fitting to die for one’s country. But in modern war, there is nothing sweet nor fitting in your dying. You will die like a dog for no good reason.
