Fredrik Bajer QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
A sign that a peace association is going adrift is its exclusion of other political parties, with whom it could collaborate effectively on most of the problems besetting the cause of peace.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
Always we must bear in mind that law has to be substituted for power, that care must be taken to serve the interests of law.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
An advantage that the Hague Conferences lack, in contrast to the peace associations and the Interparliamentary Union, is a bureau.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
As a result of my study, I came to the conclusion that a common supreme authority was undesirable.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
But I feel convinced, and I venture even to prophesy in this regard, that the time will come when there will also be a minister of peace in the cabinet, seated beside the ministers of war.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
By a great man, however, we mean a man who, because of his spiritual gifts, his character, and other qualities, deserves to be called great and who as a result earns the power to influence others.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
By the same token it must follow that the state we now call a small state is in reality a power if it plays such a role in the development of civilization that it marches in the front ranks and wins victories in the fight for law which surpass those of the so-called great powers.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
I would have thought it possible to choose delegates for these larger conferences who, even if they could not speak the principal languages, could at least understand them or could have friends seated beside them who could keep them informed on essential points.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
I would rather propose a bureau somewhat similar to that which we have in the Universal Postal Union.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
In the Danish Parliament, all members of the Lower House, without exception, are members of the interparliamentary group, and so are all but eleven members of the Upper House.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
Indeed, whenever a new idea is developed, as for example ballooning, warfare immediately takes possession.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
Indeed; peace literature is almost exclusively read, though to good effect, by pacifists, while what is needed is the canvassing of those who have not so far been won to the cause.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
It has since been agreed that speeches given in English will be translated into French and vice versa, and even into German and Italian when necessary. No doubt translations into Esperanto will also soon be in demand.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
Naturally, business and pleasure can be readily combined, but a certain balance should exist, and the latter should not predominate over the former.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
Nevertheless, this type of propaganda has a special value, for it serves to convince those who sign the appeal, of the necessity for carrying on propaganda; so a corps of propagandists, if I may use the term, is thus trained.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
On the other hand, the waging of peace as a science, as an art, is in its infancy. But we can trace its growth, its steady progress, and the time will come when there will be particular individuals designated to assume responsibility for and leadership of this movement.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
One serious obstacle to the smooth working of congresses is the language barrier.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
Peace congresses often start by dealing with some of the less important questions in excessive detail, so at the end there is no time to discuss the most important problems.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
Propaganda is a topic of particular concern to peace associations. This is a matter of educating the population in general, and not least the voters.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
The aspect of congresses and such meetings generally to which I attach the greatest importance is the discussion. That is why people assemble: to hear different opinions, rather than to pass resolutions.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
The interparliamentary conference should, in my opinion, direct its particular attention to the preparation of the next Hague Conference, the diplomatic conference, the conference of governments.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
The last Hague Conference has in the meantime expressed its opinion that a body should be established which could prepare for the work involved more effectively than has hitherto proved possible.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
There are in most states one or two ministers of war, one of whom is the minister of naval affairs.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
There are many members of parliament present here who know as well as I do that, if a man has not already been converted, it will require a great deal more than a letter of appeal to achieve conversion.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
There are those who believe we have need of more literature, of a large international publishing house, of a great peace newspaper, or the like. I am rather skeptical about this idea.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
There is one criticism which cannot be leveled at interparliamentary conferences but which is applicable to a great extent to peace congresses: the meetings waste time.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
This is the task, I think, of a letter movement. But it should be set up only in states where a significant response can be achieved, for a letter movement necessarily presupposes a strong organization.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
To read the report of a discussion in which arguments for and against are presented, in which a subject has been covered from different points of view, with new ideas advanced - this is far more instructive than to read a brief account of the resolution passed on the matter.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
Today's date, the eighteenth of May, should sometime become an occasion of great international celebration, for on this day ten years ago the first Peace Conference opened at The Hague.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
Waging war we understand, but not waging peace, or at any rate less consciously so.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
Warfare has been marvelously developed. It will soon be impossible to raise it to further heights.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
We have had such a letter movement on two occasions in Denmark when more than a quarter of the adult Danish population participated. Such an achievement, however, demands a really great effort and also a great deal of money.
Quotation of Fredrik Bajer
We have long possessed the art of war and the science of war, which have been evolved in the minutest detail.
