"We have assumed the name of peacemaker, but we have been, by and large, unwilling to pay any significant price. And because we want peace with half a heart and half a life and will, the war, of course, continues, because the waging of war, by its nature, is total, but the waging of peace, by our own cowardice, is partial..... We cry peace and cry peace and there is not peace. There is no peace because the making of peace is at least as costly as the making of war, at least as exigent, at least as disruptive, at least as liable to bring disgrace, prison and death in its wake."
Daniel Berrigan, No Bars to Manhood, 1970
"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. I will not stand idly by when I see an unjust war taking place."
Martin Luther King, Jr.
