Even peace may be purchased at too high a price.
      - Benjamin Franklin

Breathe soft, ye winds! ye waves, in silence sleep!
      - John Gay, To a Lady (ep. I, l. 17)

I have never advocated war, except as a means of peace.
      - Ulysses Simpson Grant

I never advocated war except as a means of peace.
      - Ulysses Simpson Grant

Let us have peace.
      - Ulysses Simpson Grant,
        on accepting the U.S. presidential nomination

I accept your nomination in the confident trust that the masses of our countrymen, North and South, are eager to clasp hands across the bloody chasm which has so long divided them.
      - Horace Greeley,
        on accepting the Liberal Republican nomination for U.S. president

But--a stirring thrills the air
  Like to sounds of joyance there,
    That the rages
      Of the ages
        Shall be cancelled, and deliverance offered from the darts that were,
          Consciousness the Will informing, till it fashion all things fair.
      - Thomas Hardy,
        Dynasts--Semichorus I of the Years

So peaceful shalt thou end thy blissful days,
  And steal thyself from life by slow decays.
      - Homer ("Smyrns of Chios"), The Odyssey
         (bk. XI, l. 164), (Pope's translation)

Like as a wise man in time of peace prepares for war.
  [Lat., In pace ut sapiens aptarit idonea bello.]
      - Horace (Quintus Horatius Flaccus), Satires
         (II, 2, 111)

Peace, above all things, is to be desired, but blood must sometimes be spilled to obtain it on equable and lasting terms.
      - Andrew Jackson

It is unfortunate for our peace, that unmerited abuse wounds, while unmerited praise has not the power to heal.
      - Thomas Jefferson

Peace is our passion.
      - Thomas Jefferson

Peace with all nations, and the rights which that gives us with respect to all nations, are our object.
      - Thomas Jefferson

We love peace, as we abhor pusillanimity; but not peace at any price. There is a peace more destructive of the manhood of living man than war is destructive of his material body. Chains are worse than bayonets.
      - Douglas William Jerrold

We have peace as we abhor pusillanimity; but not peace at any price. There is a peace more destructive of the manhood of living man than war is destructive of his material body. Chains are worse than bayonets.
      - Douglas William Jerrold,
        Jerrold's Wit--Peace

If we are to live together in peace, we must come to know each other better.
      - Lyndon Baines Johnson

As peace is the end of war, so to be idle is the ultimate purpose of the busy.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

It is thus that mutual cowardice keeps us in peace. Were one-half of mankind brave and one-half cowards, the brave would be always being the cowards. Were all brave, they would lead a very uneasy life; all would be continually fighting; but being all cowards, we go on very well.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature"),
        Boswell's Life of Johnson

The days of peace and slumberous calm are fled.
      - Juvenal (Decimus Junius Juvenal), Satires
         (bk. II)

Savage bears keep at peace with one another.
  [Lat., Saevis inter se convenit ursis.]
      - Juvenal (Decimus Junius Juvenal), Satires
         (XV, 164)

Thy peace shall be in much patience.
      - Thomas a Kempis

We should have much more peace if we would not busy ourselves with the sayings and doings of others.
      - Thomas a Kempis

It is an unfortunate fact that we can secure peace only by preparing for war.
      - John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Mankind must put an end to war or war will put an end to mankind.
      - John Fitzgerald Kennedy,
        in a speech to the United Nations General Assembly, September 25, 1961

I am a man of peace. God knows how I love peace; but I hope I shall never be such a coward as to mistake oppression for peace.
      - Louis Kossuth
