‘To Perpetual Peace’

“Whether this satirical inscription on a certain Dutch shopkeeper’s sign, on which a graveyard was painted, holds for men in general, or especially for heads of state who can never get enough of war, or perhaps only for philosophers who dream that sweet dream, is not for us to decide.”

—    Immanuel Kant

“We have to cease to think, if we refuse to do it in the prisonhouse of language; for we cannot reach further than the doubt which asks whether the limit we see is really a limit.”

—    Friedrich Nietzsche

(What’s so funny ’bout) Peace, Love and Understanding?

—    Nick Lowe/Elvis Costello
