Full text of "The Struggle For Peace"

with a very earnest appeal to those who hold responsible
positions both in this country and abroad—and I am including
the Press and the Members of this House—to weigh their
words very carefully before they utter them on this matter,
bearing in mind the consequences that might flow from some
rash or thoughtless phrase. I have read that in the high
mountains there are sometimes conditions to be found when
an incautious move or even a sudden loud exclamation may
start an avalanche. That is just the condition in which we
are finding ourselves to-day. I believe, although the snow
may be perilously poised, it has not yet begun to move, and
if we can all exercise caution, patience and self-restraint, we
may yet be able to save the peace of Europe."
