Frank B Kellogg QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
Adequate defense has been the catchword of every militarist for centuries.
Quotation of Frank B Kellogg
But if statesmen will come to the conclusion that the business of the government is to govern wisely, the people themselves will in time, and I think in a very short time, remedy the present conditions.
Quotation of Frank B Kellogg
Certain it is that a great responsibility rests upon the statesmen of all nations, not only to fulfill the promises for reduction in armaments, but to maintain the confidence of the people of the world in the hope of an enduring peace.

Each one of these treaties is a step for the maintenance of peace, an additional guarantee against war. It is through such machinery that the disputes between nations will be settled and war prevented.

Have we so soon forgotten those four years of terrible carnage, the greatest war of all time; forgotten the millions of men who gave their lives, who made the supreme sacrifice and who today, beneath the soil of France and Belgium, sleep the eternal sleep?
Quotation of Frank B Kellogg
I believe that in the end the abolition of war, the maintenance of world peace, the adjustment of international questions by pacific means will come through the force of public opinion, which controls nations and peoples.
Quotation of Frank B Kellogg
I believe the next naval conference, which will certainly be held some time before 1936, will make further reduction in the navies, and I hope that a general disarmament conference will be called within a very short time and that it will fulfill the hope of millions of people.
Quotation of Frank B Kellogg
I do not consider that it should be surprising that, following the sacrifice and the destruction of property in the war, there should now be a dislocation of the ordinary economic laws.

I do not envisage another war. I am aware that the people of many nations, I might say of all the world, are struggling back from this great disaster and slowly again building their governmental and economic structures and laying the foundations for an orderly peace.

Quotation of Frank B Kellogg
It was inspired by the determination of peoples not to be again afflicted with the horrors of such an appalling catastrophe.
Quotation of Frank B Kellogg
It was inspired by the memory of devastated lands, ruined homes, and the millions of men and women sacrificed in that awful struggle.
