Stephen King
“Fighting for peace, is like f***ing for chastity”
Stephen King, Hearts in Atlantis

Thomas Jefferson
“The equal rights of man, and the happiness of every individual, are now acknowledged to be the only legitimate objects of government.”
Thomas Jefferson, Letters of Thomas Jefferson

“There are perhaps many causes worth dying for, but to me, certainly, there are none worth killing for.”
Albert Dietrich, Army GI, Pacifist CO: The World War II Letters of Frank and Albert Dietrich

Gautama Buddha
“Those who attempt to conquer hatred by hatred are like warriors who take weapons to overcome others who bear arms. This does not end hatred, but gives it room to grow. But, ancient wisdom has advocated a different timeless strategy to overcome hatred. This eternal wisdom is to meet hatred with non-hatred. The method of trying to conquer hatred through hatred never succeeds in overcoming hatred. But, the method of overcoming hatred through non-hatred is eternally effective. That is why that method is described as eternal wisdom. ”
Gautama Buddha

George Orwell
“Pacifism is objectively pro-fascist. This is elementary common sense. If you hamper the war effort of one side, you automatically help out that of the other. Nor is there any real way of remaining outside such a war as the present one. In practice, 'he that is not with me is against me'.”
George Orwell
