"Therefore I feel that the aforementioned guiding principle must be modified to read: If you desire peace, cultivate justice, but at the same time cultivate the fields to produce more bread otherwise there will be no peace."
"When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace."Norman Borlaug on Jimi Hendrix
"An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind."Norman Borlaug on Mahatma Gandhi
"If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other."Norman Borlaug 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."Norman Borlaug 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."Norman Borlaug on John Lennon
"Civilization as it is known today could not have evolved, nor can it survive, without an adequate food supply."
"Without food, man can live at most but a few weeks without it, all other components of social justice are meaningless."
"Yet food is something that is taken for granted by most world leaders despite the fact that more than half of the population of the world is hungry."
"Almost certainly, however, the first essential component of social justice is adequate food for all mankind."
"Man's survival, from the time of Adam and Eve until the invention of agriculture, must have been precarious because of his inability to ensure his food supply."
