harmony

A Quote by Folliott S. Pierpont on beauty, birth, brothers, children, church, day, earth, friendship, glory, harmony, heart, joy, lies, love, mind, parenthood, praise, purity, sacrifice, sister, and wonder

1. For the beauty of the earth, For the glory of the skies; For the love which from our birth, Over and around us lies; Lord of all, to Thee we raise This, our hymn of grateful praise. 2. For the wonder of each hour, Of the day and of the night; Hill and vale and tree and flow'r, Sun and moon, and stars of light; Lord of all, to Thee we raise This, our hymn of grateful praise. 3. For the joy of ear and eye, For the heart and mind's delight; For the mystic harmony, Linking sense to sound and sight; Lord of all, to Thee we raise This, our hymn of grateful praise. 4. For the joy of human love, Brother, sister, parent, child; Friends on Earth and friends above, For all gentle thoughts and mild; Lord of all, to Thee we raise This, our hymn of grateful praise. 5. For Thy church that evermore, Lifteth holy hands above; Off'ring up on ev'ry shore, Her pure sacrifice of love; Lord of all, to Thee we raise This, our hymn of grateful praise. Amen.

One must marry one's feelings to one's beliefs and ideas. That is probably the only way to achieve a measure of harmony in one's life.

A Quote by Elizabeth Cady Stanton on anger, balance, beauty, extremism, harmony, motherhood, mountains, nature, peace, and trying

Nature, like a loving mother, is ever trying to keep land and sea, mountain and valley, each in its place, to hush the angry winds and waves, balance the extremes of heat and cold, of rain and drought, that peace, harmony and beauty may reign supreme.

A Quote by Edward O. Sisson on character, cooperation, desires, direction, education, eternity, experience, harmony, impulses, individuality, life, principles, progress, purpose, soul, and strength

NATIVE vigor of impulses and desires conserved by education and experience, the establishment of inner harmony and cooperation among the powers and capacities of the soul, the formation of a life purpose, and the direction of the individual life in accordance with the eternal principles of right that underlie human progress, - these are the elements of both strength and righteousness in human character.

You had that action and counteraction which, in the natural and in the political world, from the reciprocal struggle of discordant powers draws out the harmony of the universe.

A Quote by Edith Armstrong on anxiety, doubt, fear, harmony, health, love, mind, and peace

I keep the telephone of my mind open to peace, harmony, health, love and abundance. Then, whenever doubt, anxiety or fear try to call me, they keep getting a busy signal - and they'll soon forget my number.

A Quote by David Oman McKay on benevolence, character, charity, communication, control, deed, dignity, divinity, fatherhood, harmony, justice, laws, life, love, power, self-control, thought, truth, and wisdom

The virtues that combined to make this perfect character are truth, justice, wisdom, benevolence, and self control. His every thought, word, and deed was in harmony with divine law and therefore true. The channel of communication between him and the Father was constantly open so that truth which 'rests upon revelation' was always known to him. . . . His short though eventful life was one of benevolence which comprehends charity and love. His self-control, whether exemplified in his power over his appetites and passions or his dignity and poise when before his persecutors, was perfect-was divine.

A Quote by Charles Dudley Warner on family, happiness, harmony, separation, time, and world

Happy is said to be the family which can eat onions together. They are, for the time being, separate, from the world, and have a harmony of aspiration.
