Respectfully Quoted: A Dictionary of Quotations. 1989.

NUMBER: 1961
AUTHOR: John Foster Dulles (1888–1959)
QUOTATION: Peace will never be won if men reserve for war their greatest efforts, Peace, too, requires well-directed and sustained sacrificial endeavor. Given that, we can, I believe, achieve the great goal of our foreign policy, that of enabling our people to enjoy in peace the blessings of liberty.
