The pacifist is as surely a traitor to his country and to humanity as is the most brutal wrongdoer.
— Theodore Roosevelt

The quietly pacifist peaceful always die to make room for men who shout.
Alice Walker pacifist quote

Pacifists are like sheep who believe that wolves are vegetarians.
— Yves Montand

All that a pacifist can undertake -- but it is a very great deal -- is to refuse to kill, injure or otherwise cause suffering to another human creature, and untiringly to order his life by the rule of love though others may be captured by hate.
— Vera Brittain

If the Nazis have really been guilty of the unspeakable crimes circumstantially imputed to them, then -- let us make no mistake -- pacifism is faced with a situation with which it cannot cope. The conventional pacifist conception of a reasonable or generous peace is irrelevant to this reality.
— pacifist quotation by John Middleton Murry
