Stop wars in the world

The pioneers of a warless world are the young men (and women) who refuse military service.
Albert Einstein

I dream of giving birth to a child who will ask: "Mother, what was war?"
Eve Merriam

Mankind must put an end to war before war puts an end to mankind.
John F. Kennedy

Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.

Imagine all the people living life in peace.
John Lennon

Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.
Isaac Asimov

Human Beings, indeed all sentient beings, have the right to pursue happiness and live in peace and freedom.
The XIVth Dalai Lama

Establishing lasting peace is the work of education; all politics can do is keep us out of war.
Maria Montessori

I hate those men who would send into war youth to fight and die for them; the pride and cowardice of those old men, making their wars that boys must die.
Mary Roberts Rinehart

There is but one evil, war. All the other proclaimed evils such as hate, greed, descrimination, and jealousy are only sub-categories of it.
José Barreiro

You are a master with the language of images. Very strong use of shape and colour. We can point out where it hurts but we can not fix the disaster.

That is wonderful, Pietro. The graffiti style gets to the heart of this passionate statement. I love the layers of color and the urgency of this piece.

Your work is always so vibrant and poignant. Beautiful.

ciao pietro

This is done very well! Impressive! I like your work!
I hope one day... wars in the world can indeed stop!

Pietro, this is a great painting! & your post is a beautiful ode to Peace.
thank you for your important message.

I agree with you wholeheartedly!

Everyone voices the same sentiments,, i guess!

Good one,, Pietro

Pietro: Oh, to have peace in the world. If only that was possible. Man's nature is to fight and this is shown throughout the world. May we have peace my friend.

I see in your colorful painting and your choice of quotations a wonderful tribute to PEACE.
I'm seing it from an optimistic vision. As the XIVth Dakai Lama do.
May many others share your point of view !

Ciao Pietro, ora ho capito chi sei, vedendo qui da te i commenti di Pierangela.

Beh anche il tuo blog è bello ed è anche internazionale, io conosco un pò di inglese ma proprio a livello scolastico e poi ormai da allora sono passati tanti di quegli anni che quasi quasi non ricordo più nulla.

Allora vedo dal tuo blog che sei pittore e fotografo insomma ti piace il bello.

Niente male.

Un saluto e piacere di averti conosciuto un pochino più da vicino.

I agree with Joy the image is very powerful and some great words!

We should put all politicians together in a boxingring and there they can beat each other to dead, and we watch the fight.
The painting is beautiful ! I love these colors !

Pietro the painting is a masterpiece and the quotes are great also.
very strong post.

A very thoughtful one! Very timing too...I agree with Einstein, and there's a group of them who do that! Enjoy your week!

Artistic way to convey a message. I support that message.

Wonderful post!
"Mother, what was war?" - what a beautiful thought.

ciao Pietro, come va la tua influenza?... è ritornata la neve e io non ne posso più .....
ti auguro buona giornata

i like how you chose the colors from this art.

thanks also for sharing those quotes or phrases. war has never been good. but there's a battle worth fighting for.

Very impressive picture, Pietro!This post is just great. And the quotes are great as well! But, unfortunately, there is no use of it when those who create the wars don’t care of nothing else but of their own power. I can never forget the fear that I saw in the eyes of my younger son, who was only 6 yrso, when the war started in my country. There are no words that can describe the feeling of a human being who live under the siege for almost four years. That’s why my heart bleeding for all those innocent people who are suffering the same or even worse way.

Pietro mi hai stupita .... mentre savo allestendo il blag ho trovato il tuo commento primo visitatore, se passi questa sera ci sarà
l'inaugurazione ciao

It's funny.. I didn't even notice the skull at first.. the colors are so stunning and pretty that it took me a bit to actually see the whole painting! Good choice Pietro! Bravo!

critical expressive colorful image!!

Very compelling art work and very appropriate quotes. Yes, "Stop Wars in the World." NOW!


Hello Pietro!
Sorry, I missed this article!
I wish every war finished.
If everyone use money to eat good food and to build good houses instead of wars, how wonderful.....
for world peace what can I do?
For now the only thing that I can do is just being nice to people....
