No More War!

10268721_867404906619829_2810534546168773922_nVerily, due to sensuous craving,

kings fight with kings, princes with princes,

priests with priests, citizens with citizens,

the mother quarrels with the son,

the son quarrels with the father,

brother with brother, brother with sister,

sister with brother, friend with friend.

—Buddha Shakyamuni, Majjhima Nikaya

If everyone were to follow the advice of the Buddha, there would be no reason for war to take place in this world. It is the duty of every cultured man to find all possible ways and means to settle disputes in a peaceful manner, without declaring war to kill his fellow men. —Venerable K. Sri Dhammananda Maha Thera
