War may sometimes be a necessary evil. But no matter how necessary, it is always an evil, never a good. We will not learn how to live together in peace by killing each other's children.
- Jimmy Carter
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

- Howard Zinn
The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.
- G.K. Chesterton
What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or in the holy name of liberty or democracy?
- Mahatma Gandhi
The nation having the strongest war footing can easily find an excuse for going to war.
- Lewis F. Korns
