We were preparing not Peace only, but Eternal Peace. There was about us the halo of some divine mission. We must be alert, stern, righteous and ascetic. We were bent on doing great, permanent noble things.

Harold Nicolson, British delegate to 1919 Paris peace conference

This is not a peace treaty, it is an armistice for 20 years.

Marshal Ferdinand Foch, at the signing of the Treaty of Versailles, 1919

In this week of remembrance, may we learn from war as we strive for peace … and freedom and democracy and equality and justice.
