Advertising Peace

"Henry Ford sold his cars with advertising. I'm selling peace. Yoko and I are just a big advertising campaign. That might make people laugh, but it also might make them think." -John Lennon

"Anyone can love peace, but Jesus didn't say, 'Blessed are the peace-lovers.' He says peacemakers. He is referring to a life vocation, not a hobby on the sidelines of life." -Jim Wallis

"We have grasped the mystery of the atom and rejected the Sermon on the Mount. Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants. We know more about war than we know about peace, more about killing that we know about living." -General Omar Bradley

"One little person, giving all of her time to peace, makes news. Many people, giving some of their time, can make history." -Mildred Lisette Norman

"We look forward to the time when the Power of Love will replace the Love of Power. Then will our world know the blessings of peace." -William Gladstone

I love the Jim Wallis quote so much that I have a post-it on that page of his book, God's Politics.
