To be enduring, a peace must be endurable.
      - Unattributed Author

This hand, to tyrants ever sworn the foe,
  For freedom only deals the deadly blow;
    Then sheathes in calm repose the vengeful blade,
      For gentle peace in freedom's hallowed shade.
      - John Quincy Adams, written in an album

A time will come when the science of destruction shall bend before the arts of peace; when the genius which multiplies our powers, which creates new products, which diffuses comfort and happiness among the great mass of the people, shall occupy in the general estimation of mankind that rank which reason and common sense now assign to it.
      - Francois Arago

All things that speak of heaven speak of peace.
      - Philip James Bailey

The goodness of the heart is shown in deeds
  Of peacefulness and kindness. Hand and heart
    Are one thing with the good, as thou should'st be.
      Do my words trouble thee? then treasure them,
        Pain overgot gives peace, as death doth Heaven.
          All things that speak of Heaven speak of peace.
      - Philip James Bailey

And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house.

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
      - Bible, Matthew (ch. V, v. 9)

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
      - Bible, Philippians (ch. IV, v. 7)

Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.
  For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.
    She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.
      Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honor.
        Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.
          She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.

The fiercest agonies have shortest reign;
  And after dreams of horror, comes again
    The welcome morning with its rays of peace.

The Pilgrim they laid in a large upper chamber, whose window opened toward the sun-rising; the name of the chamber was Peace, where he slept till break of day, and then he awoke and sang.
      - John Bunyan

The trenchant blade Toledo trusty.
  For want of fighting was grown rusty,

With union grounded on falsehood and ordering us to speak and act lies, we will not have anything to do. Peace? A brutal lethargy is peaceable; the noisome is peaceable. We hope for a living peace, not a dead one!
