Excuse me, Could I have a Word......

"Mankind must put an end to war or war will put an end to mankind" John F. Kennedy "The first peace,which is most important, is that which comes within the souls of men when they realize their relationship,their oneness,with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize that at the centre of the universe dwells Wakan-Tanka, and that this centre is really everywhere, it is within each of us. This is the real Peace, and the others are but reflections of this. The second peace is that which is made between two individuals, and the third is that which is made between two nations. But above all you should understand that there can be peace between nations until there is first known that true peace which, as I have often said, is within the souls of men." Black Elk "It is good humans need peace, but the earth needs peace too. There are 5 billion beings on earth, and I am just one of those many millions. But, as my name means something to other people and it is well known, may my words carry some weight for other people to listen. Since I was sixteen I have been fighting for freedom. But I keep fighting with determination, will and determination is what we need, and non-violence is the key. I talk about this, but you put it into action. Active non-violence is what you do." The Dalai Lama "We are told that, drunk with its own power, mankind is rushing to self-destruction, that it will be consumed in the fire it has so rashly lit. To me it seems that (thanks to the atom bomb) it is war, not mankind, that is destined to be eliminated, and for two reasons. The first, which we all know and long for, is that the very excess of destructive placed in our hands must render all armed conflict impossible. But what is even more important, although we have thought less about it, is that war will be eliminated at its source in our hearts because, compared with the vast field for conquest which science has disclosed to us, its triumphs will soon appear trivial and outmoded." Teilhard de Chardin Lovers of the World unite, you alone know what is right. Song Lyrics. David & Jonathan July 1966.      The ancients, when they wished to exemplify illustrious virtue throughout the empire, first brought peace and order to their states. Desiring to bring peace and order to their states, they first brought the same to their families. Wishing to bring peace to their families, they first cultivated themselves. Wishing to cultivate themselves, they first purified their purpose. Wishing to purify their purposes, they first sought to think sincerely. Wishing to think sincerely, they first extended their knowledge as widely as possible. They did this by the investigation of all things.
     By investigation of all things, their knowledge became extensive; their knowledge being extensive, their thoughts became sincere; their thoughts being sincere, their purposes were rectified; their purposes being rectified, they cultivated themselves; having cultivated themselves, their families were regulated; their families having been regulated, their states were governed rightly; their states being rightly governed, the empire was thereby brought to peace and prosperity. Confucius We are citizens of the world and the tragedy of our times is that we do not know this. Woodrow Wilson The best way to convince man that war is not an exciting adventure is to kill half his friends, drop a bomb on his family's house, and relieve him of a limb or two. A less drastic but quite effective form of education is to show events like these on colour television. Nick Downie (Sunday Times) There is no way to Peace. Peace is the way Abraham Muste The arms race is a race with no finishing post. Solly Zuckerman Only the winners decide what were war crimes. Gary Wills
