Lord Salisbury and myself have brought you back peacebut a peace I hope with honour.
(Benjamin Disraeli (1804-1881), British statesman, author. Quoted in Times (London, July 17, 1878).
Remark on returning from the Berlin Congress convened to resolve the European crisis (the "Eastern Question"). The words "peace with honour" were used by Neville Chamberlain in 1938. See Chamberlain on "World War II.")
The name of peace is sweet, and the thing itself is beneficial, but there is a great difference between peace and servitude. Peace is freedom in tranquility, servitude is the worst of all evils, to be resisted not only by war, but even by death.
(Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 B.C.), Roman orator, philosopher, statesman. Philippica, II, 113.)
