I worship individuals for their highest possibilities as individuals and I loathe humanity for its failure to live up to these possibilities.
The ‘Third World’ is a term I don’t like very much because we’re all one world. I want people to know that the largest part of humanity is suffering.
People in these places don’t know Audrey Hepburn, but they recognize the name UNICEF. When they see UNICEF their faces light up, because they know that something is happening. In the Sudan, for example, they call a water pump UNICEF.
I can testify to what UNICEF means to children because I was among those who received food and medical relief right after World War II.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
Terrorism has become a festering wound. It is an enemy of humanity.
Ours is a multi-religious country, a multi-lingual country; we have many different modes of worship. We believe in peaceful and harmonious co-existence.
Our frequent initiatives to normalize relations with Pakistan are not a sign of our weakness; rather, they are an indication of our commitment to peace.
I believe that democracy is the best guarantor for peace and cooperation among nations.
We want peace to be permanent.
We believe in resolving all disputes peacefully.
As we talk with candour, we open the doors to new possibilities and new areas of cooperation in advance in democracy, in combating terrorism, in energy and environment, science and technology and international peacekeeping.
If it is necessary for us to do anything (in view of peace), direct us and architect.
Peace, above all things, is to be desired, but blood must sometimes be spilled to obtain it on equable and lasting terms.
My dynamite will sooner lead to peace than a thousand world conventions. As soon as men will find that in one instant, whole armies can be utterly destroyed, they surely will abide by golden peace.
I intend to leave after my death a large fund for the promotion of the peace idea, but I am skeptical as to its results.
Good wishes alone will not ensure peace.
To see with the eyes of another, to hear with the ears of another, to feel with the heart of another. For the time being, this seems to me an admissible definition of what we call social feeling.
The science of the mind can only have for its proper goal the understanding of human nature by every human being, and through its use, brings peace to every human soul.
Death is really a great blessing for humanity, without it there could be no real progress. People who lived for ever would not only hamper and discourage the young, but they would themselves lack sufficient stimulus to be creative.
