Well, well, well. The mighty Uthman-ul-Dosht comes with mercy, and offers peace. These are strange times we live in, eh, Tulkis? Have the Gurkish learned to love their enemies? Or simply fear them?'
'One need not love one's enemy, or even fear him, to desire peace. One need only love oneself.'
'Is that so?'
'It is. I lost two sons in the wars between our peoples. One at Ulrioch in the last war. He was a priest, and burned in the temple there. The other died not long ago, at the siege of Dagoska. He led the charge when the first breach was made.'
Glokta frowned and stretched out his neck. A hail of flatbow bolts. Tiny figures, falling in the rubble. 'That was a brave charge.'
'War is harshest on the brave. ~ Joe Abercrombie
Desire Peace quotes by Joe Abercrombie
My colleagues and I have gone in the footsteps of our predecessors since the very first day we were called by our people to care for their future. We went any place, we looked for any avenue, we made any effort to bring about negotiations between Israel and its neighbors, negotiations without which peace remains an abstract desire. ~ Menachem Begin
Desire Peace quotes by Menachem Begin
Nine-nine of every hundred among you probably desire peace, while the balance may hold war a condition to be preferred; but what can be the mental norm of statesmanship where such a minority conquer the peace-lovers? ~ Eden Phillpotts
Desire Peace quotes by Eden Phillpotts
War forgets peace. Peace forgives war. War is the death of the life human. Peace is the birth of the Life Divine. Our vital passions want war. Our psychic emotions desire peace. ~ Sri Chinmoy
Desire Peace quotes by Sri Chinmoy
It is ironic enough to see sentiments of the most sublime self-denial invoked in support of spoliation itself. See to what this boasted disinterestedness tends! These men who are so fantastically delicate as not to desire peace itself, if it is founded on the vile interest of mankind, put their hand into the pockets of others, and especially of the poor. ~ Frederic Bastiat
Desire Peace quotes by Frederic Bastiat
We always desire peace yet we prepare to go to war. ~ Debasish Mridha
Desire Peace quotes by Debasish Mridha
Who would desire peace should be prepared for war. ~ Publius Flavius Vegetius Renatus
Desire Peace quotes by Publius Flavius Vegetius Renatus
Only to the extent that men desire peace and brotherhood can the world be made better. No peace even though temporarily obtained, will be permanent, whether to individuals or nations, unless it is built upon the solid foundation of eternal principles. ~ David O. McKay
Desire Peace quotes by David O. McKay
If you desire peace, begin to pray. ~ Lailah Gifty Akita
Desire Peace quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
We often see people every day searching in the wrong places for the things they desire. Too many of our fellow humans try to find peace and happiness in drugs, alcohol, and sensual excitement. And it doesn't work. If we desire peace, the first place to look is within ourselves. Peace isn't an external condition as much as an internal context. ~ John Templeton
Desire Peace quotes by John Templeton
We desire peace. However, if imperialism insists on fighting a war, we will have no alternative but to take the firm resolution to fight to the finish before going ahead with our construction. If you are afraid of war day in day out, what will you do if war eventually comes? First, I said that the East Wind is prevailing over the West Wind and war will not break out, and now I have added these explanations about the situation in case war should break out. Both possibilities have thus been taken into account. ~ Mao Zedong
Desire Peace quotes by Mao Zedong
The nonchalance irritated her more because it was not assumed. ~ Margaret Landon
Desire Peace quotes by Margaret Landon
War is the greatest plague that can afflict humanity, it destroys religion, it destroys states, it destroys families. Any scourge is preferable to it. ~ Martin Luther
Desire Peace quotes by Martin Luther
there are worse things than death or murder." "Like what?" I asked. "Though it's hard to comprehend," he said, "the worst thing is to say to God that you don't need him. Why? Because a dead person can be restored to life by God; a bereaved person can find peace from God; a person who has been violated can find God's sustenance and strength and even see God conquer through the dark mystery of evil. In other words, there is recourse through these atrocities and tragedies. But to a person who says he or she doesn't need God, what is the recourse? There is none. ~ Lee Strobel
Desire Peace quotes by Lee Strobel
Mere negation, mere Epicurean infidelity, as Lord Bacon most justly observes, has never disturbed the peace of the world. It furnishes no motive for action; it inspires no enthusiasm; it has no missionaries, no crusades, no martyrs. ~ Thomas B. Macaulay
Desire Peace quotes by Thomas B. Macaulay
Activism pays the rent on being alive and being here on the planet. ~ Alice Walker
Desire Peace quotes by Alice Walker
And rivaling the Democratic Peace theory as a categorical factoid about modern conflict prevention is the Golden Arches theory: no two countries with a McDonald's have ever fought in a war. The only unambiguous Big Mac Attack took place in 1999, when NATO briefly bombed Yugoslavia.234 ~ Steven Pinker
Desire Peace quotes by Steven Pinker
We will try to create conditions where persons could come together in a spirit of teamwork, and exercise to their heart's desire their technological capacity. ~ Akio Morita
Desire Peace quotes by Akio Morita
A few months apart and an ocean in between us couldn't keep our thoughts about each other from surfacing. - Taylor First ~ Kailin Gow
Desire Peace quotes by Kailin Gow
We fall into states of illusion - we forget all this. We get caught up in desires, frustrations, political movements, philosophies, religions, the getting of a living, the pain of a body, the pleasure of a body. ~ Frederick Lenz
Desire Peace quotes by Frederick Lenz
Until mankind realizes that there is, in truth, no good, and there is, in truth, no evil-there will be no peace. ~ Shirley Maclaine
Desire Peace quotes by Shirley Maclaine
My idea for peace in the Middle East is to go back to the 1966 line, but to build even more houses for the Palestinians, who are a poor people. ~ Frank Carson
Desire Peace quotes by Frank Carson
Conquer self before you desire to defeat others. ~ Aditya Ajmera
Desire Peace quotes by Aditya Ajmera
I want people to feel good about listening to this record, to get some kind of peace. It's just got something magical about it. ~ Martin Gore
Desire Peace quotes by Martin Gore
Instead of building the peace by attacking injustices like starvation, disease, illiteracy, political and economic servitude, we spend a trillion dollars on war since 1946, until hatred and conflict have become the international preoccupation. ~ Daniel Berrigan
Desire Peace quotes by Daniel Berrigan
We talked about desire and being jealous,
Our conversation a loose single gown
Or a white picnic tablecloth spread out
Like a book of manners in the wilderness. ~ Seamus Heaney
Desire Peace quotes by Seamus Heaney
Peace, peace! he is not dead, he doth not sleep - He hath awakened from the dream of life ~ Percy Bysshe Shelley
Desire Peace quotes by Percy Bysshe Shelley
Coexistence and personal peace are at the heart of global peace and harmony. ~ Widad Akreyi
Desire Peace quotes by Widad Akreyi
You will have to multiply many times your two-fold being and complicate your complexities still further. Instead of narrowing your world and simplifying your soul, you will have to absorb more and more of the world and at last take all of it up in your painfully expanded soul, if you are ever to find peace. ~ Hermann Hesse
Desire Peace quotes by Hermann Hesse
I desire to go through life knowing as little of evil in it as possible. To this end, I sometimes avoid looking too closely into the nature of things, studying them only so far as they seem to be good, and abandoning interest in them as soon as their darker feature begin to appear. The good only deserves a hearty interest. ~ Christian Nestell Bovee
Desire Peace quotes by Christian Nestell Bovee
A person whose desires and impulses are his own - are the expression of his own nature, as it has been developed and modified by his own culture - is said to have a character. One whose desires and impulses are not his own, has no character, no more than a steam-engine has character ... ~ John Stuart Mill
Desire Peace quotes by John Stuart Mill
It's quite fun to fight them, you know. It's a hell of a hoot. It's fun to shoot some people. I'll be right up front with you, I like brawling. ~ James Mattis
Desire Peace quotes by James Mattis
I see this as the central issue of our time: how to find a substitute for war in human ingenuity, imagination, courage, sacrifice, patience ...
War is not inevitable, however persistent it is, however long a history it has in human affairs. It does not come out of some instinctive human need. It is manufactured by political leaders, who then must make a tremendous effort
by enticement, by propaganda, by coercion
to mobilize a normally reluctant population to go to war. ~ Howard Zinn
Desire Peace quotes by Howard Zinn
Have you noticed how much lying we do in our relationships? We tell ourselves that it's not lying or it is excusable for purposes of self-defense. How little we realise that every lie digs us deeper into a painful delusion and we end up building war zones, not love boats. ~ Donna Goddard
Desire Peace quotes by Donna Goddard
He tasted like white wine and pine needles. He tasted like two years of waiting. I wanted to breathe for him, I wanted to swallow him whole. I ached with a sudden, pulsing need, an overwhelming desire I'd never felt before. ~ Viv Daniels
Desire Peace quotes by Viv Daniels
We dared to hope we had invented something that would bring lasting peace to the earth. But we were wrong. . . ~ David McCullough
Desire Peace quotes by David McCullough
Well, yes,when you no longer have any desire, you are dead. Even desire for a product, a consumer item, is better than no desire at all. Desire for a camera, for instance, even a cheap one, a tawdry one, is enough to keep death at bay." a wicked smile, an inhale of the cigarette with those lips. "If the desire is real, of course. ~ David Cronenberg
Desire Peace quotes by David Cronenberg
Will restrained a desire to leap in at this point and tell her that an inability to hold down a relationship was indicative of an undervalued kind of moral courage, that only cool people screwed up. ~ Nick Hornby
Desire Peace quotes by Nick Hornby
The perfect world for me is to find some sort of inner peace. I believe that a man that walks with God can walk anywhere. ~ Immortal Technique
Desire Peace quotes by Immortal Technique
Come here, Amanda." His voice was a low scrape of sound.
"Oh, I can't," she said unsteadily. "I-I think you should go now."
Jack leaned forward and caught her wrist gently in his fingers. "I won't hurt you," he whispered. "I won't do anything that you don't like. But before I leave you this evening, I'm going to hold you in my arms."
Confusion and desire swirled inside her, making her feel unanchored, helpless. She let him pull her forward until her short limbs rested stiffly against his much longer ones. He ran a large palm down her back, and she could feel a trail of sensation in its wake. His skin was hot, as if a fire burned right beneath the smooth golden surface.
Her breath shortened, and she closed her eyes, shivering, luxuriating in the feeling of being warm all the way down to her bones. For the first time in her life, she let her head fall into the waiting crook of a man's arm, and stared up at his shadowed face.
As he felt the trembling of her limbs, he made a crooning sound and cuddled her closer. "Don't be afraid, mhuirnin. I won't hurt you."
"What did you call me?" she asked in bewilderment.
He smiled down at her. "A small endearment. Did I neglect to mention that I'm half Irish?"
That explained his accent, the neat cultured tones tempered with a sort of musical softness that must be Celtic in origin. ~ Lisa Kleypas
Desire Peace quotes by Lisa Kleypas
I personally would go further and say that, if your morality is based, as mine is, on a desire to increase the sum of happiness and reduce suffering, the decision to deliberately give birth to a Down baby, when you have the choice to abort it early in the pregnancy, might actually be immoral from the point of view of the child's own welfare. ~ Richard Dawkins
Desire Peace quotes by Richard Dawkins
Through baseball we channel boys desire for exercise and let off their explosive violence without letting them get into the police court. ~ Herbert Hoover
Desire Peace quotes by Herbert Hoover
Education today, in this particular social period, is assuming truly unlimited importance. And the increased emphasis on its practical value can be summed up in one sentence: education is the best weapon for peace. ~ Maria Montessori
Desire Peace quotes by Maria Montessori
Desire activates the potential that was coined within you. You cannot unleash your potential without stepping up your desire to succeed... ~ Assegid Habtewold
Desire Peace quotes by Assegid Habtewold
I came into the world imbued with the will to find a meaning in things, my spirit filled with the desire to attain to the source of the world, and then I found that I was an object in the midst of other objects. ~ Frantz Fanon
Desire Peace quotes by Frantz Fanon
For the sentimentalism and emotionalism which have infested our country, we should substitute hard common sense. Pacific habits do not insure peace or immunity from national insult and aggression. ~ Douglas MacArthur
Desire Peace quotes by Douglas MacArthur
