Voice of Hope

“For my grandchildren . . . and all children—this book is written with hopes of the time to come, when no child shall lie down in terror or waken to hunger, but shall know himself as a being of unique value in a safer and kindlier world.”

~ I Walked with Heroes, dedication

A Means to Peace

“Peace is impossible without freedom; freedom in turn is impossible without economic security.”

~ speech before the Philippine Chamber of Commerce, 1948

Quest for Peace

“Words and ideas are more powerful than guns in the defense of human dignity. Treaties are stronger than armamented boundaries. The only impregnable line is that of human understanding.”

~ speech delivered at the opening session of the United Nations, San Francisco, 1945
