—  Тимоти Маквей, 1990s, Letter to the Union-Sun & Journal (1992)

„When we have such compassion we will not despoil the earth as we are doing now, and we will have no wars.“

—  Jiddu Krishnamurti Indian spiritual philosopher 1895 - 1986
1970s, Context: It is utterly and irrevocably possible to empty all hurts and, therefore, to love, to have compassion. To have compassion means to have passion for all things, not just between two people, but for all human beings, for all things of the earth, the animals, the trees, everything the earth contains. When we have such compassion we will not despoil the earth as we are doing now, and we will have no wars. Talks in Saanen (1974), p. 71

John Adams фото

„What do we mean by the Revolution? The war? That was no part of the revolution; it was only an effect and consequence of it. The revolution was in the minds of the people, and this was effected from 1760–1775, in the course of fifteen years, before a drop of blood was shed at Lexington.“

—  John Adams 2nd President of the United States 1735 - 1826
1810s, Context: As to the history of the revolution, my ideas may be peculiar, perhaps singular. What do we mean by the Revolution? The war? That was no part of the revolution; it was only an effect and consequence of it. The revolution was in the minds of the people, and this was effected from 1760–1775, in the course of fifteen years, before a drop of blood was shed at Lexington. Letter to Thomas Jefferson (24 August 1815), The Works of John Adams; he later expressed similar sentiments in a letter to Hezekiah Niles (13 February 1818)

„I do not repine. We have shared the incommunicable experience of war; we have felt, we still feel, the passion of life to its top.“

—  Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. United States Supreme Court justice 1841 - 1935
1890s, Context: As for us, our days of combat are over. Our swords are rust. Our guns will thunder no more. The vultures that once wheeled over our heads must be buried with their prey. Whatever of glory must be won in the council or the closet, never again in the field. I do not repine. We have shared the incommunicable experience of war; we have felt, we still feel, the passion of life to its top. "The Soldier's Faith" Memorial Day address at Harvard University (30 May 1895) http://people.virginia.edu/~mmd5f/holmesfa.htm.
