Peace Toasts

May we love peace enough to fight for it.

May we love peace enough not to fight for it.

May our leaders be wise, and our commerce increase,
And may we experience the blessings of peace.

To peace! In the words of a great general, Dwight David Eisenhower, "We know that there is no true and lasting cure for world tensions in guns and bombs. We know that only the spirit and mind of men, dedicated to justice and right, can, in the long term, enable us to live in the confident tranquility that should be every man's heritage."

Here's to health, peace, and prosperity-may the flower of love never be nipped by the frost of disappointment, nor the shadow of grief fall among a member of this circle.
