I hope you find great value in these Quotes by Fredrik Bajer from my large collection of motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings.

Indeed, whenever a new idea is developed,
as for example ballooning, warfare immediately takes possession.
- Fredrik Bajer

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

Naturally, business and pleasure can be readily combined,
but a certain balance should exist, and the latter

that which we have in the Universal Postal Union.

Peace congresses often start by dealing with some of
the less important questions in excessive detail,
so at the end there is no time to discuss the most important problems.
- Fredrik Bajer

the meetings waste time.

which have been evolved in the minutest detail.

There are many members of parliament present here who
know as well as I do that,
if a man has not already been converted,
it will require a great deal more than a letter of
appeal to achieve conversion.
- Fredrik Bajer

Nevertheless, this type of propaganda has a special value,
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

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

On the other hand, the waging of peace as a science,

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

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.
- Fredrik Bajer

By a great man, however, we mean a man who,
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

Today's date, the eighteenth of May,
should sometime become an occasion of great international celebration,
for on this day ten years ago the first Peace Conference opened at The Hague.
- 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

seated beside the ministers of war.
- 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 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

A friend in need is a friend indeed.
- Latin Proverb

AN INSPIRED LIFE: I HAVE A CHOICE
My key to living an inspired life involves
Embracing my history,
Understanding the function of expectations
and gently learning to have none;
Recognizing the power of attentive and conscious choices.
In all circumstances I acknowledge this,
IN ALL THINGS AND ALL WAYS, I HAVE CHOICE.
My choice resides in my perspective.
While I certainly do not control climate
and markets and roadways and others,
I do control myself and my response
to all those circumstances. I do indeed.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

the consequences of your actions,

Most of us believe that we have
been betrayed by someone outside of us -
in other words someone has done something to hurt us,
been dishonest or broken a promise made:
some trust in some concept was broken.
Indeed someone may have taken an action
that took only their needs into consideration,
they may have not followed through on a promise made,
and they may have not told you the truth.
But their actions have nothing to do with you
and have everything to do with them.
That's why no one can do anything TO you.
They can take actions that involve you that you may not like -
according to your point of view.
But you are not a victim, no way, no how.
- Sheri Rosenthal

Let children walk with Nature,
let them see the beautiful blendings

their joyous inseparable unity,
as taught in woods and meadows,
plains and mountains and streams
of our blessed star,
and they will learn that death
is stingless indeed,
and as beautiful as life.
- John Muir

If people are good only because they
fear punishment, and hope for reward,
then we are a sorry lot indeed.

what a terrible picture!
Is there indeed anything more terrible,
more criminal, than our glorified sacred function of motherhood?
- Emma Goldman

The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to
enter the house of his wisdom but rather leads you
to the threshold of your mind.
- Khalil Gibran

God Almighty first planted a garden.
And indeed, it is the purest of human pleasures.
- Francis Bacon

The fastest way to break the cycle of perfectionism
and become a fearless is mother is to give up the idea of doing it perfectly -
indeed to embrace uncertainty and imperfection.
- Arianna Huffington

Lovers may be and indeed generally are enemies,
but they never can be friends, because there must always
be a spice of jealousy and a something of Self in all their speculations.
- George Byron

Faith indeed tells what the senses do not tell,
but not the contrary of what they see.
It is above them and not contrary to them.

follies, and misfortunes of mankind.
