Fields of Peace - Who Said it Game
Our webmaster got confused and put the wrong names next to words they said. Can you help to make them right? All answers can be found in the book soft as water.
Come, be human. Sit down and let's talk.
People are like newspaper, they'll put up with anything you put on them.
Voice or no voice, people can always be brought to do the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. all you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peace makers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.
from "Without Love" by Shulamith Hareven
"...ole Dink's a coward...I got scared and ran. You think it's cause I was afraid of dyin'? Cause I wished I was dead plenty of times...It ain't the dyin' that's scary boy. It's the killin'."
What is hateful to you, do not do to your fellow man.That is the whole of the Torah. The rest is commentary. Go study.
It's terrible for me to live in a time where I have nothing to say to human beings except, "Stop killing." There are other beautiful things I would love to be saying to people. But I cannot. Because everything is endangered. Everything is up for grabs.
from My Dog Skip by Willie Morris
There is nothing surprising in a Muslim or Pathan like me subscribing to the creed of nonviolence. It is not a new creed...But we had so forgotten it that when Ghandiji placed it before us, we though he was sponsoring a novel creed.
There is no way to peace along the way to safety. For peace must be dared, it is itself the great venture and can never be safe.
War is a racket. It always has been.It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one where profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives.

A cab driver advises, "Lady you take it from me: What we gotta do is grab those Arabs, and get a big stick and hit them over the head but good--hit 'em and hit 'em until they quit hating us."
