an end to war
before war puts
an end to mankind."

John F. Kennedy

Karen, nice site!

Love this quote too.

It's from:
Address Before the General Assembly of the United Nations
President John F. Kennedy
New York City
September 25, 1961

(upon the occasion of the death of Dag Hammarskjold)

For in the development of this organization (UN) rests the only true alternative to war--and war appeals no longer as a rational alternative. Unconditional war can no longer lead to unconditional victory. It can no longer serve to settle disputes. It can no longer concern the great powers alone. For a nuclear disaster, spread by wind and water and fear, could well engulf the great and the small, the rich and the poor, the committed and the uncommitted alike. Mankind must put an end to war--or war will put an end to mankind.

Good quote!

I always liked this quote by Albert Einstein, too.

"I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones."
