The way of peace is a seamless garment that must cover the whole of life and must be applied in all its relationshipsA.J. Muste (found here)
A common observation about A.J. Muste I’ve seen many places now goes like this:
Once a reporter asked him, “Do you really think you are going to change the policies of this country by standing out here alone at night in front of the White House with a candle?” A.J. Muste replied softly: “Oh I don’t do this to change the country. I do this so the country won’t change me.”facebook
I haven’t found a reliable source for the quote or the observation yet. He died on this date back in 1967. There is a foundation that was established in his name located at this URL: ajmuste.org
I am not a pacifist. On the other hand, I’m beginning to think that I probably should have always been one.
