The line, borrowed from the author Goethe, became the title of this  final lithograph of German artist, K√§the Kollwitz (1867-1945), and shows clearly her belief in the futility of war and the waste of the sacrifice of the young to violence.

198 Methods of Nonviolent Action compiled by Dr. Gene Sharp and first published in his 1973 book, The Politics of Nonviolent Action, Vol. 2: The Methods of Nonviolent Action. (Boston: Porter Sargent Publishers, 1973). The book outlines each method and gives information about its historical use. You may also download this list of methods.
