Famous quotes containing the words peace, world and/or congress:
“Today we seek a moral basis for peace.... It cannot be a lasting peace if the fruit of it is oppression, or starvation, cruelty, or human life dominated by armed camps. It cannot be a sound peace if small nations must live in fear of powerful neighbors. It cannot be a moral peace if freedom from invasion is sold for tribute.”
—Franklin D. Roosevelt (18821945)
“Art is not necessary at all. All that is necessary to make this world a better place to live in is to loveto love as Christ loved, as Buddha loved.”
—Isadora Duncan (18781927)
“The profession I chose was politics; the profession I entered was the law. I entered the one because I thought it would lead to the other. It was once the same road; and Congress is [s]till full of lawyers.”
