“No more war! Never again war! If you wish to be brothers, drop your weapons.”
“We must not believe the Evil One when he tells us that there is nothing we can do in the face of violence, injustice and sin.”
“We have never preached violence, except the violence of love, which left Christ nailed to a cross, the violence that we must each do to ourselves to overcome our selfishness and such cruel inequalities among us. The violence we preach is not the violence of the sword, the violence of hatred. It is the violence of love, of brotherhood,the violence that wills to beat weapons into sickles for work.”
“Moderate strength is shown in violence, supreme strength is shown in levity.”
“Violence is a force which can be used for good or evil, and among other things taken by it is the kingdom of heaven.”
“Words are as strong and powerful as bombs, as napalm.”
“In some cases non-violence requires more militancy than violence.”
“Peace is not the product of terror or fear. Peace is not the silence of cemeteries. Peace is not the silent result of violent repression. Peace is the generous, tranquil contribution of all to the good of all. Peace is dynamism. Peace is generosity. It is right and it is duty.”
Be regular and orderly in your life, so that you may be violent and original in your work.
