More on Peace

"Peace begins with a smile" - Mother Teresa

"Peace is liberty in tranquillity" - Cicero

"A peace is of the nature of a conquest; for then both parties nobly are subdued, and neither party loser" - Shakespeare

"Peace and friendship with all mankind is our wisest policy, and I wish we may be permitted to pursue it" - Thomas Jefferson

"Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained through understanding" - Ralph Waldo Emerson

"The pursuit of peace and progress cannot end in a few years in either victory or defeat. The pursuit of peace and progress, with its trials and its errors, its successes and its setbacks, can never be relaxed and never abandoned" - Dag Hammarskjold

Peace with its connotations of smiles, tranquility, friendship is worth a fight, a worthy pursuit, but not at the cost of dignity and country, so peace to all except those waging an economic war on America with weapons of globalization - those must perish so lasting peace may return to these Great United States of America.

And those opposed to this need a reminder that Mahatma Gandhi beat the British by leading Indians to boycotting Made in UK. He peacefully defeated India's colonizers, we can too - by doing the same, boycotting foreign made goods and companies that send jobs abroad.
