Quotes by Fredrik Bajer

Let these Fredrik Bajer quotes help you to appreciate all aspects of life, and to cope with whatever comes along.

the less important questions in excessive detail,
so at the end there is no time to discuss the most important problems.

It will soon be impossible to raise it to further heights.
- Fredrik Bajer

of a large international publishing house,
of a great peace newspaper, or the like.

while what is needed is the canvassing of those who

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.
- Fredrik Bajer

I would rather propose a bureau somewhat similar to
that which we have in the Universal Postal Union.
- Fredrik Bajer

Waging war we understand, but not waging peace,
or at any rate less consciously so.
- 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.

Indeed, whenever a new idea is developed,
as for example ballooning, warfare immediately takes possession.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.

for on this day ten years ago the first Peace Conference opened at The Hague.

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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Fredrik Bajer

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.
- Fredrik Bajer

so a corps of propagandists,
if I may use the term, is thus trained.
- Fredrik Bajer

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.

seated beside the ministers of war.
