What did you wear to the ball...a backless gown?

Some thoughts for a day like today...

Not until the creation and maintenance of decent conditions of life for all people are recognized and accepted as a common obligation of all people and all countries - not until then shall we, with a certain degree of justification, be able to speak of humankind as civilized.
--Albert Einstein

It isn't enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn't enough to believe in it. One must work at it.
--Eleanor Roosevelt

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
--Albert Einstein

The sole advantage of power is that you can do more good.
--Baltasar Gracian, The Art of Worldly Wisdom, 1647

Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.
--Albert Einstein

You cannot simultaneously prevent and prepare for war.
--Albert Einstein

Mankind must put an end to war before war puts an end to mankind.
--John F. Kennedy

A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both.
--Dwight D. Eisenhower

War will exist until that distant day when the conscientious objector enjoys the same reputation and prestige that the warrior does today.
--John F. Kennedy

Problems cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them.
--Albert Einstein

Are bombs the only way of setting fire to the spirit of a people? Is the human will as inert as the past two world-wide wars would indicate?
--Gregory Clark

Never do anything against conscience even if the state demands it.
--Albert Einstein

I have always held firmly to the thought that each one of us can do a little to bring some portion of misery to an end.
--Albert Schweitzer

The awareness that we are all human beings together has become lost in war and through politics. We have reached the point of regarding each other only as members of a people either allied with us or against us and our approach; prejudice, sympathy, or antipathy are all conditioned by that. Now we must rediscover the fact that we--all together--are human beings, and that we must strive to concede to each other what moral capacity we must have.
--Albert Schweitzer

It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.
--Jiddu Krishnamurti

Man can hardly even recognize the devils of his own creation.
--Albert Schweitzer
