Famous quotes containing the word peaceful:

    Beat! beat! drums!—blow! bugles! blow!
    Through the windows—through doors—burst like a ruthless force,
    Into the solemn church, and scatter the congregation;
    Into the school where the scholar is studying;
    Leave not the bridegroom quiet—no happiness must he have now with his bride;
    Nor the peaceful farmer any peace, plough his field or gathering his
    So fierce you whirr and pound, you drums—so shrill you bugles blow.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    This habit of free speaking at ladies’ lunches has impaired society; it has doubtless led to many of the tragedies of divorce and marital unhappiness. Could society be deaf and dumb and Congress abolished for a season, what a happy and peaceful life one could lead!
    M. E. W. Sherwood (1826–1903)

    The respect for human rights is one of the most significant advantages of a free and democratic nation in the peaceful struggle for influence, and we should use this good weapon as effectively as possible.
    Jimmy Carter (James Earl Carter, Jr.)
