Happy the heart that keeps its twilight hour,
And, in the depths of heavenly peace reclined,
Loves to commune with thoughts of tender power,–
Thoughts that ascend, like angels beautiful,
A shining Jacob’s-ladder of the mind!
-Paul H. Hayne, Sonnet IX
Hearing John Lennon
All we are saying
Is give peace a chance
We should be all
taking him up
for ice cream
“Establishing lasting peace is the work of education;
all politics can do is keep us out of war.”
“Where ignorance is our master, there is no possibility of real peace.”

“You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you mad.” –

A life of peace, purity, and refinement
leads to a calm and untroubled old age.
The human being is constantly is torn from calm and peace of simple existence by two things; wanting what you don’t have, or disliking what you have. — Paul Fleischman
I am poor and naked, but I am the chief of the nation. We do not want riches but we do want to train our children right. Riches would do us no good. We could not take them with us to the other world. We do not want riches. We want peace and love.
Do not let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace.
If we are to reach real peace in the world,
we shall have to begin with children.
The world will never have lasting peace so long as people reserve for war the finest human qualities. Peace, no less than war, requires idealism and self-sacrifice and a righteous and dynamic faith.
John Foster Dulles
