International Day of Peace

Nations were destined to be co-operating parts in one grand whole. . . . Peace hath her victories much more renowned than those of war: the heroes of the past have been those who most successfully injured or slew; the heroes of the future are to be those who most wisely benefit or save their fellow-men.


— Andrew Carnegie, “A League of Peace” (speech to the students at the University of St. Andrews, Scotland, October 17, 1905)
