We sleep safe in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.

Those who 'abjure' violence can do so only because others are committing violence on their behalf.

The badge of the violent is his weapon, spear, sword or rifle. God is the shield of the non-violent.

It is better to be violent, if there is violence in our hearts, than to put on the cloak of nonviolence to cover impotence.
