Peace Quotes

A Twitter @PeaceQuotes account was developed to share 140 character or less Peace Quotes on about an hourly basis, because we thought it would be a good idea to stimulate thoughts of peace! The Peace Quotes Twitter initiative was conceived and established Jan 2010 while we were developing a web site for the 40th anniversary of the May 4 1970 Kent State Shootings for Alan Canfora and the Kent May 4 Center 501(c)3 non-profit. Their site has since been re-developed, but we were pleased to have spent three months full-time preparing it for the 40th anniversary!

The Global Peace Internet Foundation currently maintains 153 twitter-able famous peace quotes in our collection. We also welcome submissions.

The Peace Quotes collection is also now integrated and synchronized with a Facebook page at URL: so now you can have a famous peace quote within your Facebook news feed about on an hourly basis!
