"When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace."Ludwig Quidde on Jimi Hendrix
"An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind."Ludwig Quidde on Mahatma Gandhi
"If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other."Ludwig Quidde on Mother Teresa
"I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word."Ludwig Quidde on Martin Luther King, Jr.
"Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will be as one."Ludwig Quidde on John Lennon
