Famous quotes containing the word peaceful:

    If all would lead their lives in love like me,
    Then bloody swords and armor should not be;
    No drum nor trumpet peaceful sleeps should move,
    Unless alarm came from the camp of love.
    Thomas Campion (1567–1620)

    See how peaceful it is here. The sea is everything. An immense reservoir of nature where I roam at will.... Think of it. On the surface there is hunger and fear. Men still exercise unjust laws. They fight, tear one another to pieces. A mere few feet beneath the waves their reign ceases, their evil drowns. Here on the ocean floor is the only independence. Here I am free.
    Earl Felton, and Richard Fleischer. Captain Nemo (James Mason)

    To give the victory to the right, not bloody bullets, but peaceful ballots only, are necessary.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)
