War is not inherent in human beings. We learn war and we learn peace. The culture of peace is something which is learned, just as violence is learned and war culture is learned.
-- Elise Boulding
Today the choice is no longer between violence and nonviolence. It is either nonviolence or nonexistence.
MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. (1929-1968), Stride Toward Freedom, 1958
