"The gospel of Jesus Christ is the only element that will destroy the hatred that exists among people. If they will bring this gospel into their lives and recognize the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man and the effects of the atonement of Christ, there will be a far greater measure of peace in the world. We will not have peace until that happens more generally. That is why we are here, brothers and sisters, you and I. That is the objective of our work — to teach the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and touch the hearts of people so that they can look upon one another as brothers and sisters, as children of our Father in Heaven. "

Gordon B. Hinckley - Solihull, England, Aug. 30, 1995

"I would that the healing power of Christ might spread over the earth and be diffused through our society and into our homes, that it might cure men's hearts of the evil and adverse elements of greed and hate and conflict.

Gordon B. Hinckley, CR Oct. 1988

"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
