“Peace cannot be built on exclusivism, absolutism, and intolerance. But neither can it be built on vague liberal slogans and pious programs gestated in the smoke of confabulation. There can be no peace on earth without the kind of inner change that brings man back to his “right mind.” p. 31” ― Thomas Merton, On Non-Violence
“I believe much trouble and blood would be saved if we opened our hearts more.” ― Chief Joseph
“The non-violent resistor not only avoids external, physical violence, but he avoids internal violence of spirit. He not only refuses to shoot his opponent, but he refuses to hate him. And he stand with understanding, goodwill at all times.” ― Martin Luther King Jr.
