Waging war we understand, but not waging peace  (Fredrik Bajer Quotes) We have had such a letter movement on two occasions in Denmark when more than a quarter of the adult Danish population participated. Such an achievement, however, demands a really great effort and also a great deal of money  (Fredrik Bajer Quotes) The last Hague Conference has in the meantime expressed its opinion that a body should be established which could prepare for the work involved more effectively than has hitherto proved possible  (Fredrik Bajer Quotes) The interparliamentary conference should, in my opinion, direct its particular attention to the preparation of the next Hague Conference, the diplomatic conference, the conference of governments  (Fredrik Bajer Quotes) I would rather propose a bureau somewhat similar to that which we have in the Universal Postal Union  (Fredrik Bajer Quotes) Today’s date, the eighteenth of May, should sometime become an occasion of great international celebration, for on this day ten years ago the first Peace Conference opened at The Hague  (Fredrik Bajer Quotes) To read the report of a discussion in which arguments for and against are presented, in which a subject has been covered from different points of view, with new ideas advanced - this is far more instructive than to read a brief account of the resolution passed on the matter  (Fredrik Bajer Quotes) Indeed, whenever a new idea is developed, as for example ballooning, warfare immediately takes possession  (Fredrik Bajer Quotes) We have long possessed the art of war and the science of war, which have been evolved in the minutest detail  (Fredrik Bajer Quotes) Always we must bear in mind that law has to be substituted for power, that care must be taken to serve the interests of law  (Fredrik Bajer Quotes) Propaganda is a topic of particular concern to peace associations. This is a matter of educating the population in general, and not least the voters  (Fredrik Bajer Quotes) Pacifists should stress more and more that it is the rule of law for which they are fighting  (Fredrik Bajer Quotes) There are those who believe we have need of more literature, of a large international publishing house, of a great peace newspaper, or the like. I am rather skeptical about this idea  (Fredrik Bajer Quotes) Peace congresses often start by dealing with some of the less important questions in excessive detail, so at the end there is no time to discuss the most important problems  (Fredrik Bajer Quotes) Indeed; peace literature is almost exclusively read, though to good effect, by pacifists, while what is needed is the canvassing of those who have not so far been won to the cause  (Fredrik Bajer Quotes) But I feel convinced, and I venture even to prophesy in this regard, that the time will come when there will also be a minister of peace in the cabinet, seated beside the ministers of war  (Fredrik Bajer Quotes) A sign that a peace association is going adrift is its exclusion of other political parties, with whom it could collaborate effectively on most of the problems besetting the cause of peace  (Fredrik Bajer Quotes) Warfare has been marvelously developed. It will soon be impossible to raise it to further heights  (Fredrik Bajer Quotes) This is the task, I think, of a letter movement. But it should be set up only in states where a significant response can be achieved, for a letter movement necessarily presupposes a strong organization  (Fredrik Bajer Quotes) There are many members of parliament present here who know as well as I do that, if a man has not already been converted, it will require a great deal more than a letter of appeal to achieve conversion  (Fredrik Bajer Quotes) As a result of my study, I came to the conclusion that a common supreme authority was undesirable  (Fredrik Bajer Quotes) By a great man, however, we mean a man who, because of his spiritual gifts, his character, and other qualities, deserves to be called great and who as a result earns the power to influence others  (Fredrik Bajer Quotes) I would have thought it possible to choose delegates for these larger conferences who, even if they could not speak the principal languages, could at least understand them or could have friends seated beside them who could keep them informed on essential points  (Fredrik Bajer Quotes) Naturally, business and pleasure can be readily combined, but a certain balance should exist, and the latter should not predominate over the former  (Fredrik Bajer Quotes) Nevertheless, this type of propaganda has a special value, for it serves to convince those who sign the appeal, of the necessity for carrying on propaganda; so a corps of propagandists, if I may use the term, is thus trained  (Fredrik Bajer Quotes) There is one criticism which cannot be leveled at interparliamentary conferences but which is applicable to a great extent to peace congresses: the meetings waste time  (Fredrik Bajer Quotes) The aspect of congresses and such meetings generally to which I attach the greatest importance is the discussion. That is why people assemble: to hear different opinions, rather than to pass resolutions  (Fredrik Bajer Quotes) There are in most states one or two ministers of war, one of whom is the minister of naval affairs  (Fredrik Bajer Quotes) On the other hand, the waging of peace as a science, as an art, is in its infancy. But we can trace its growth, its steady progress, and the time will come when there will be particular individuals designated to assume responsibility for and leadership of this movement  (Fredrik Bajer Quotes)
