Ludwig Quidde Quotes

Let these quotes by Ludwig Quidde help you to have a positive attitude toward life, and to think positively.

The following year, after I had prepared my draft,
the Conference of the Interparliamentary Union at The
Hague decided to set up a special commission to study the problem seriously.
- Ludwig Quidde

It will be sufficient to point to the enormous burdens
which armaments place on the economic,

The popular, and one may say naive, idea is that peace
can be secured by disarmament and that disarmament
must therefore precede the attainment of absolute security and lasting peace.
- Ludwig Quidde

The relationship of the two problems is rather the reverse.
To a great extent disarmament is dependent on guarantees of peace.
Security comes first and disarmament second.
- Ludwig Quidde

Even a total and universal disarmament does not guarantee
the maintenance of peace.
- Ludwig Quidde

 

We pacifists have not ceased to point to the grave
danger of armaments and to insist on their curtailment.
- Ludwig Quidde

Armaments are necessary - or are maintained on the pretext of necessity -
because of a real or an imagined danger of war.
- Ludwig Quidde

Thus, if armaments were curtailed without a secure
peace and all countries disarmed proportionately,
military security would have been in no way affected.
- Ludwig Quidde

Pacifist propaganda and the resolutions of the parliamentarians
encouraged such treaties,
and toward the end of the nineteenth century their
number had increased considerably.
- Ludwig Quidde

The security of which we speak is to be attained by
the development of international law through an international
organization based on the principles of law and justice.
- Ludwig Quidde

Limitation of armaments in itself is economically and
financially important quite apart from security.
- Ludwig Quidde

Disarmament or limitation of armaments,
which depends on the progress made on security,
also contributes to the maintenance of peace.
- Ludwig Quidde

Every success in limiting armaments is a sign that
the will to achieve mutual understanding exists,
and every such success thus supports the fight for
international law and order.
- Ludwig Quidde

Great progress was made when arbitration treaties were
concluded in which the contracting powers pledge in
advance to submit all conflicts to an arbitration court,
treaties which not only specify the composition of the court,
but also its procedure.
- Ludwig Quidde

The present level of armaments could be taken as the starting point.
It could be stipulated in an international treaty that
these armaments should be simultaneously and uniformly
reduced by a certain proportion in all countries.
- Ludwig Quidde

Let us assume that the ideal were reached;
let us imagine a state of international life in which
the danger of war no longer exists.
Then no one would dare to demand a penny for obviously
completely superfluous armaments.
- Ludwig Quidde

I am convinced that when the history of international
law comes to be written centuries hence,
it will be divided into two periods:
the first being from the earliest times to the end
of the nineteenth century,
and the second beginning with the Hague Conference.
- Ludwig Quidde

When distrust exists between governments,
when there is a danger of war, they will not be willing
to disarm even when logic indicates that disarmament
would not affect military security at all.
- Ludwig Quidde

Some pacifists have carried the sound idea of the prime
importance of security too far,
to the point of declaring that any consideration of
disarmament is superfluous and pointless as long as
eternal peace has not been attained.
- Ludwig Quidde

Among pacifists it was above all the English who always
insisted on the importance of disarmament.
They said that the man in the street would not understand
the kind of pacifism that neglected to demand immediate
restriction of armaments.
- Ludwig Quidde

So long as peace is not attained by law (so argue the
advocates of armaments) the military protection of
a country must not be undermined,
and until such is the case disarmament is impossible.
- Ludwig Quidde

No one was ever named "Hero" for following the crowd.
Heroes set their own course.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie PHOTO

Happiness isn't at the end of the rainbow.
Happiness is at the beginning of the rainbow.
Following the rainbow is happiness,
not getting to the end of it.
- Werner Erhard

Balance activity with serenity,
wealth with simplicity,
persistence with innovation,
community with solitude,
familiarity with adventure,
constancy with change,
leading with following.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

From the way most people live,
one would never guess that humans are beings of free will.
Repetition can be a choice, but often it isn't.
The athlete or pianist who practices the same routine
day after day, year after year, has their eye on a goal.
The unending repetition is a conscious choice
in the pursuit of a life dream.
But what about the sameness of most lives?
Observe the morning commute, the after-work drink,
the Sunday football game or religious service -
how many of those people are consciously following their dream,
training their mind, body, and spirit through that daily repetition?
And how many are mindlessly slogging through each day
out of habit and boredom?
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I do not want to foresee the future.
I am concerned with taking care of the present.
God has given me no control over the moment following.

Do more than is required.
What is the distance between someone who achieves their
goals consistently and those who spend their lives
and careers merely following? The extra mile.
- Gary Ryan Blair

The claim "I was only following orders" has been used
to justify too many tragedies in our history.
- Captain Picard of the television series

The end of life is to be like God,
and the soul following God will be like Him.
