Here's an interesting story from the NYT.

It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an
act of murder." Albert Einstein

During times of war, hatred becomes quite respectable, even though it has to
masquerade often under the guise of patriotism: Howard Thurman:

Collective fear stimulates herd instinct, and tends to produce ferocity
toward those who are not regarded as members of the herd. Bertrand Russell:

When will our consciences grow so tender that we will act to prevent human
misery rather than avenge it? : Eleanor Roosevelt
