From the Dhammapada

Food for thought on Memorial Day.

Na hi verena verani sammant' idha kudacanam, averena ca sammanti. Esa dhammo sanantano.

And, courtesy of the transliteration engine:

Rús Damapadwa-
Líz vé tónglipé tónglip tínghal húné,
wútónglipé tarth tínghal. Hí pot wuajhmes é.

And in English:

Not indeed by violence does violence ever cease in the here and now,
only by non-violence. This is a law eternal.
