„There is a price which is too great to pay for peace, and that price can be put in one word. One cannot pay the price of self-respect.“

—  Woodrow Wilson American politician, 28th president of the United States (in office from 1913 to 1921) 1856 - 1924

„We must be prepared to pay the price for peace, or assuredly we shall pay the price of war.“

—  Harry Truman American politician, 33rd president of the United States (in office from 1945 to 1953) 1884 - 1972
Context: The recommendations I have made represent the most urgent steps toward securing the peace and preventing war. We must be ready to take every wise and necessary step to carry out this great purpose. This will require assistance to other nations. It will require an adequate and balanced military strength. We must be prepared to pay the price for peace, or assuredly we shall pay the price of war. We in the United States remain determined to seek peace by every possible means, a just and honorable basis for the settlement of international issues.

„Inner peace is the key: if you have inner peace, the external problems do not affect your deep sense of peace and tranquility.“

—  Далай-лама XIV spiritual leader of Tibet 1935
Context: Inner peace is the key: if you have inner peace, the external problems do not affect your deep sense of peace and tranquility. In that state of mind you can deal with situations with calmness and reason, while keeping your inner happiness. That is very important. Without this inner peace, no matter how comfortable your life is materially, you may still be worried, disturbed or unhappy because of circumstances.

„There is an imperialism that deserves all honor and respect — an imperialism of service in the discharge of great duties. But with too many it is the sense of domination and aggrandisement, the glorification of power. The price of peace is eternal vigilance.“

—  Leonard H. Courtney British politician 1832 - 1918
As quoted in The Life Of Lord Courtney (1920) by G. P. Gooch<!-- p. 514 --> The statement "The price of peace is eternal vigilance" has been widely attributed to others, including George Marshall, however even Courtney's use of it is probably derived from an earlier statement with several variants: The price of freedom is eternal vigilance. The price of liberty is eternal vigilance. Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.

„The price of peace is eternal vigilance.“

—  George Marshall US military leader, Army Chief of Staff 1880 - 1959
This has been attributed to Marshall, and he might have used the phrase, but earlier uses exist: There is an imperialism that deserves all honor and respect — an imperialism of service in the discharge of great duties. But with too many it is the sense of domination and aggrandisement, the glorification of power. The price of peace is eternal vigilance. Leonard H. Courtney as quoted in The Life Of Lord Courtney (I920) by G. P. Gooch<!-- p. 514 --> Courtney's statement however is probably derived from an earlier statement with several variants: The price of freedom is eternal vigilance. The price of liberty is eternal vigilance. Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty. These have often been attributed to Thomas Jefferson, but also Thomas Paine, Abraham Lincoln, and many others; Alfred Denning in The Road to Justice (1988) states that the phrase originated in a statement of Irish orator John Philpot Curran in 1790: "It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance."
