        Eclogue II--Hassan (l. 68)

Like the rainbow, peace rests upon the earth, but its arch is lost in heaven. Heaven bathes it in hues of light--it springs up amid tears and clouds--it is a reflection of the eternal sun--it is an assurance of calm--it is the sign of a great covenant between God and man--it is an emanation from the distant orb of immortal light.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

Peace is the evening star of the soul, as virtue is its sun, and the two are never far apart.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

O for a lodge in some vast wilderness,
  Some boundless contiguity of shade;
    Where rumor of oppression and deceit,
      Of unsuccessful or successful war,
        Might never reach me more.
      - William Cowper, Task (bk. II, l. 1)

Though peace be made, yet it's interest that keep peace.

Such subtle covenants shall be made,
  Till peace itself is war in masquerade.

         (pt. I, l. 752; pt. II, l. 268)

At home the hateful names of parties cease,
  And factious souls are wearied into peace.
      - John Dryden, Astroea Redux (l. 312)

All of us who are concerned for peace and triumph of reason and justice must be keenly aware how small an influence reason and honest good will exert upon events in the political field.
      - Albert Einstein

The pioneers of a warless world are the [youth] who refuse military service.
      - Albert Einstein

Peace and justice are two sides of the same coin.
      - Dwight David Eisenhower

Lord, make me an Instrument of Thy Peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love. Where there is injury, pardon. . . .
