Many people in this world speak of peace from different angles. Some speak of peace as a result of good socio-economic policies, or as a result of a sound distribution of wealth. Prem speaks of peace from a perspective that is both original and intriguing. Rather than to look only to institutions or to policies for creating peace, he speaks of a peace that, he says, each person is personally responsible for finding. Despite ever-growing audiences, his message remains directed at each individual who comes to hear him and the people who enjoy his message come from all walks of life.

Maharaji (Prem Rawat)

Peace ought to be the result of a system well considered, founded on the true interests of the different countries, honorable to each, and ought not to be either a capitulation or the result of a threat.

Napoleon Bonaparte

They say that the Soviet delegates smile. That smile is genuine. It is not artificial. We wish to live in peace, tranquility. But if anyone believes that our smiles involve abandonment of the teaching of Marx, Engels and Lenin he deceives himself poorly. Those who wait for that must wait until a shrimp learns to whistle.

Nikita Khrushchev

If your officer's dead and the sergeants look white,
Remember it's ruin to run from a fight:
So take open order, lie down, and sit tight,
And wait for supports like a soldier.
Wait, wait, wait like a soldier...

Rudyard Kipling

There has never been upon the earth a generation of free men and women. It is not yet time to write a creed. Wait until the chains are broken until dungeons are not regarded as temples. Wait until solemnity is not mistaken for wisdom until mental cowardice ceases to be known as reverence. Wait until the living are considered the equals of the dead until the cradle takes precedence of the coffin. Wait until what we know can be spoken without regard to what others may believe. Wait until teachers take the place of preachers until followers become investigators. Wait until the world is free before you write a creed.
In this creed there will be but one word Liberty.

Robert G. Ingersoll
