„Thus I have hopes of being able to achieve something of value through my current studies or with any new ideas that come in the future.“

—  John Nash American mathematician and Nobel Prize laureate 1928 - 2015

Autobiographical essay (1994)
Kontext: Statistically, it would seem improbable that any mathematician or scientist, at the age of 66, would be able through continued research efforts, to add much to his or her previous achievements. However I am still making the effort and it is conceivable that with the gap period of about 25 years of partially deluded thinking providing a sort of vacation my situation may be atypical. Thus I have hopes of being able to achieve something of value through my current studies or with any new ideas that come in the future.

„Prosperity can come through peace alone.“

—  Paul von Hindenburg Prussian-German field marshal, statesman, and president of Germany 1847 - 1934

Kontext: Prosperity can come through peace alone. The German people are in favor of all possible means to make war impossible. I have seen three wars. A man who has seen three wars never will wish another war. He must be a friend of peace.
But I am not a pacifist. All my impressions of war are so bad that I could be for it only under the sternest necessity — the necessity of fighting Bolshevism or of defending one's country.

—  Garry Davis American actor turned peace activist (1921-2013) 1921 - 2013

As quoted in Garry Davis Cult, Life (Jan 24, 1949)

„There is no path to peace except as the will of peoples may open to it. The way of peace is through agreement, not through force.“

—  Charles Evans Hughes American judge 1862 - 1948

The Pathway of Peace (1923)
Kontext: There is no path to peace except as the will of peoples may open to it. The way of peace is through agreement, not through force. The question then is not of any ambitious scheme to prevent war, but simply of the constant effort, which is the highest task of statesmanship in relation to every possible cause of strife, to diminish a people's disposition to resort to force and to find a just and reasonable basis for accord. If the energy, ability, and sagacity equal to that now devoted to preparation for war could be concentrated upon such efforts aided by the urgent demands of an intelligent public opinion, addressed not to impossibilities but to the removal or adjustment of actual differences, we should make a sure approach to our goal.

„Discussions without end have been devoted to the subject of peace, and the efforts to obtain a general and lasting peace have been frequent through many years of world history.“

—  George Marshall US military leader, Army Chief of Staff 1880 - 1959

Essentials to Peace (1953)
Kontext: Discussions without end have been devoted to the subject of peace, and the efforts to obtain a general and lasting peace have been frequent through many years of world history. There has been success temporarily, but all have broken down, and with the most tragic consequences since 1914. What I would like to do is point our attention to some directions in which efforts to attain peace seem promising of success.
