I am not referring to the absolute, infinite concepts of universal peace and goodwill of which some fantasies and fanatics dream. Let us focus instead on a more practical, more attainable peace.

So let us not be blind to our differences, but let us also direct attention to our common interests, our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this small planet. We all breathe the same air.

And we are all mortal. – John Fitzgerald Kennedy – Abstract from the Primary Resources: American University Speech, 10th June 1963: JFK describes his vision for world peace in an age of nuclear threats.
