Peace without justice is tyranny.
William Allen White

Peace is our gift to each other.
Elie Wiesel

The wolf shall also dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.

Thich Nhat Hanh

Peace is more important than all justice; and was not made for the sake of justice, but justice for the sake of peace.
