The real differences around the world today are not between Jews and Arabs; Protestants and Catholics; Muslims, Croats, and Serbs. The real differences are between those who embrace peace and those who would destroy it; between those who look to the future and those who cling to the past; between those who open their arms and those who are determined to clench their fists. --William J. Clinton, 1997

We look forward to the time when the Power of Love will replace the Love of Power. Then will our world know the blessings of peace. --William Ewart Gladstone

There is one armor that the world of men and women, as a world, has never yet put on. The churches have long bungled with its fastenings, but the world has gone unfended, and few have been those in whose hands the mystical sword of the spirit has shone with daily use. This armor, waiting to be worn, is the armor of brotherhood and sacrifice, the world of unselfishness, a conquering sword, with the power, where used, to unite the world in love. And there are none who may not put it on. --M.A. DeWolfe Howe

Let us love the world to peace. --Quoted in The Angels' Little Instruction Book by Eileen Elias Freeman, 1994
