We must see that peace represents a sweeter music, a cosmic melody,
that is far superior to the discords of war. Somehow, we must transform
the dynamics of the world power struggle from the negative nuclear arms
race, which no one can win, to a positive contest to harness humanity’s
creative genius for the purpose of making peace and prosperity a
reality for all the nations of the world. In short, we must shift the
arms race into a peace race. If we have a will – and determination – to
mount such a peace offensive, we will unlock hitherto tightly sealed
doors of hope and transform our imminent cosmic elegy into a psalm of
creative fulfillment.

— Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968)
