“‘Peace’ is a strong word. It has the same root as ‘pact’ and presupposes agreement confirmed by sworn faith and law. It has the same root as ‘pay’ (pacare means ‘to appease’) and so implies measured compensation. It is an act, an act that costs an effort. It belongs to the same family as ‘compact’ and implies solidity and coherence.”—Lanza del Vasto
