There is one criticism which cannot be leveled at interparliamentary
by Fredrik Bajer

There is one criticism which cannot be leveled at interparliamentary
conferences but which is applicable to a great extent to peace congresses:
the meetings waste time.
- Fredrik Bajer

Naturally, business and pleasure can be readily combined,
but a certain balance should exist, and the latter
should not predominate over the former.

of a large international publishing house,
of a great peace newspaper, or the like.
I am rather skeptical about this idea.
- Fredrik Bajer

There are in most states one or two ministers of war,
one of whom is the minister of naval affairs.

Indeed; peace literature is almost exclusively read,
though to good effect, by pacifists,
while what is needed is the canvassing of those who
have not so far been won to the cause.
- Fredrik Bajer

Warfare has been marvelously developed.
It will soon be impossible to raise it to further heights.
- Fredrik Bajer

The aspect of congresses and such meetings generally
to which I attach the greatest importance is the discussion.
That is why people assemble: to hear different opinions,
rather than to pass resolutions.
- Fredrik Bajer

This is the task, I think, of a letter movement.
But it should be set up only in states where a significant
response can be achieved,
for a letter movement necessarily presupposes a strong organization.
- Fredrik Bajer

The interparliamentary conference should,
in my opinion, direct its particular attention to the
preparation of the next Hague Conference,
the diplomatic conference, the conference of governments.

if a man has not already been converted,
it will require a great deal more than a letter of
appeal to achieve conversion.

I would have thought it possible to choose delegates
for these larger conferences who,
even if they could not speak the principal languages,
could at least understand them or could have friends
seated beside them who could keep them informed on essential points.
- Fredrik Bajer

The last Hague Conference has in the meantime expressed
its opinion that a body should be established which
could prepare for the work involved more effectively
than has hitherto proved possible.
- Fredrik Bajer

for it serves to convince those who sign the appeal,
of the necessity for carrying on propaganda;
so a corps of propagandists,
if I may use the term, is thus trained.
- Fredrik Bajer

On the other hand, the waging of peace as a science,
as an art, is in its infancy.
But we can trace its growth, its steady progress,
and the time will come when there will be particular
individuals designated to assume responsibility for
and leadership of this movement.
- Fredrik Bajer

To read the report of a discussion in which arguments
for and against are presented,
in which a subject has been covered from different points of view,
with new ideas advanced - this is far more instructive
than to read a brief account of the resolution passed on the matter.
- Fredrik Bajer

A sign that a peace association is going adrift is
its exclusion of other political parties,
with whom it could collaborate effectively on most
of the problems besetting the cause of peace.
- Fredrik Bajer

But I feel convinced, and I venture even to prophesy in this regard,
that the time will come when there will also be a minister of peace in the cabinet,
seated beside the ministers of war.
- Fredrik Bajer

Today's date, the eighteenth of May,
should sometime become an occasion of great international celebration,

effort and also a great deal of money.
- Fredrik Bajer

because of his spiritual gifts, his character,
and other qualities, deserves to be called great and
who as a result earns the power to influence others.
- Fredrik Bajer

will be translated into French and vice versa,
and even into German and Italian when necessary.
No doubt translations into Esperanto will also soon be in demand.
- Fredrik Bajer

because you have lived,
this is to have succeeded.

One does not discover new lands without consenting
to lose sight of the shore for a very long time.

I believe that everything happens for a reason.
People change so that you can learn to let go,
things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right,
you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself,

considering individual rights,
because you can't have five wolves and one sheep
voting on what to have for dinner.

is composed of two characters.
One represents danger and the other represents opportunity.

to choose one's own way.
