NUMBER: 1321
AUTHOR: Dwight David Eisenhower (1890–1969)
QUOTATION: I like to believe that people, in the long run, are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it.
