I believe the above quote attributed to Emerson is in fact an Albert Einstein quote – love the pic of Snoopy

Sincere aplogies – I was sent scrambling back to do a bit of research of my own – the Einstein quote is: Peace cannot be kept by force, it can only be achieved by understanding – very close but not quite. Emerson is your source, as you have maintained. You showed grace under fire – thanks.
