The United Nations is our one great hope for a peaceful and free world.
The primary, the fundamental, the essential purpose of the United Nations is to keep peace.
By strengthening the three pillars of the United Nations - security, development and human rights - we can build a more peaceful, more prosperous and more just world for our succeeding generations.
The historic adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals underscores a long-standing truth: there will be no peace without development, no development without peace, and neither without respect for human rights.
Ours can be the first generation to end poverty – and the last generation to address climate change before it is too late.
Reflecting on the [Millennium Development Goals] and looking ahead to the next 15 years, there is no question that we can deliver on our shared responsibility to put an end to poverty, leave no one behind, and create a world of dignity for all.
Be a global citizen. Act with passion and compassion. Help us make this world safer and more sustainable today and for the generations that will follow us. That is our moral responsibility.
More than ever before in human history, we share a common destiny. We can master it only if we face it together. And that is why we have the United Nations.
What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.
Peace cannot be kept by force it can only be achieved by understanding.
