George Washington: "While we are contending for our own liberty, we should be very cautious not to violate the rights of conscience in others, ever considering that God alone is the judge of the hearts of men, and to him only in this case they are answerable."
Thomas Jefferson: “We took the liberty to make some enquiries concerning the ground of their pretensions to make war upon nations who had done them no injury, and observed that we considered all mankind as our friends who had done us no wrong, nor had given us any provocation."

Woodrow Wilson: “Our object now, as then, is to vindicate the principles of peace and justice in the life of the world as against selfish and autocratic power."
Franklin D. Roosevelt: "More than an end to war, we want an end to the beginnings of all wars."
Barack Obama: "So, yes, the instruments of war do have a role to play in preserving the peace. And yet, this truth must coexist with another: that no matter how justified, war promises human tragedy. "
