George Soros has been the center of controversy over the years. Yet, this controversy has not obstructed him from raking in mind-blowing sums of money — Forbes values him as being worth $24.2 billion.

Regardless of controversy surrounding George Soros, he has donated large sums of money to better the lives of people in need. For example, in 1979, Soros funded scholarships to South Africans who were adversely affected by apartheid.

Below are three quotes from Soros regarding his thoughts on peace, and subjects associated with peace.

1. “It may be shocking to say, but I believe that the current unilateralist posture of the United States constitutes a serious threat to the peace and prosperity of the world.”
George Soros, in his 2000 book "Open Society: Reforming Global Capitalism," according to The Blaze

2.  “The question is: Do you need some structure to preserve peace or will the interests of the global economy be enough to achieve it? I don’t think they are. I agree that today you have less military conflict between states, but you have more of it inside states, as in Bosnia or Rwanda.
George Soros, in conversation with former Israel Prime Minister Shimon Peres

3. “How can we eradicate global poverty and deliver sustainable development for all? That is the question that governments are now considering at the United Nations in the process that will determine the world’s post-2015 development priorities. As head of a global network of foundations that provides almost $1 billion of funding every year to civil society groups around the world, I care about development very much. And I welcome the UN’s stated commitment that this process 'should also promote peace and security, democratic governance, the rule of law, gender equality, and human rights for all.' These are issues that are at the heart of our work at the Open Society Foundations, and they are vital to peace and development. ”
George Soros, writing on behalf of Open Society Foundations
