I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent.
~Gandhi    
 

It's not the bullet with my name on it that worries me.  It's the one that says "To whom it may concern." 
~Anonymous Belfast resident, quoted in London Guardian, 1991   

Violence is not merely killing another. It is violence when we use a sharp word, when we make a gesture to brush away a person, when we obey because there is fear. So violence isn't merely organized butchery in the name of God, in the name of society or country. Violence is much more subtle, much deeper, and we are inquiring into the very depths of violence.
~Jiddu Krishnamurti      

One hates what one fears.
~Marilyn Manson

You can discover what your enemy fears most by observing the means he uses to frighten you.

    When force is used to change a mind, peaceful ways are left behind. When peaceful ways are not used, the path is open to be abused.
