Peace

A Quote by Charles Wesley on anticipation, belief, charm, christ, death, earth, fear, god, grace, health, heaven, humility, jesus, life, listening, love, music, peace, power, and praise

Oh for a thousand tongues to sing my great Redeemer's praise, the glories of my God and King, the triumphs of his grace! My gracious Master and my God, assist me to proclaim, to spread through all the earth abroad the honors of thy name. Jesus! the name that charms our fears, that bids our sorrows cease; 'tis music in the sinner's ears, 'tis life, and health, and peace. He breaks the power of canceled sin, he sets the prisoner free; his blood can make the foulest clean; his blood availed for me. He speaks, and listening to his voice, new life the dead receive; the mournful, broken hearts rejoice, the humble poor believe. In Christ, your head, you then shall know, shall feel your sins forgiven, anticipate your heaven below, and own that love in heaven.

Charles Wesley (1707 - 1788)

A Quote by Charles F. Banning on character, clarity, conscience, eternity, friendship, gold, mind, peace, possessions, world, and worth

If all the gold in the world were melted down into a solid cube it would be about the size of an eight-room house. If a man got possession of all that gold - billions of dollars worth, he could not buy a friend, character, peace of mind, clear conscience, or a sense of eternity.

A Quote by Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr. on consequences, country, danger, government, history, influence, judaism, lies, majorities, peace, people, strength, survival, tolerance, virtue, and war

Instead of agitating for war, the Jewish groups in this country should be opposing it in every possible way, for they will be among the first to feel its consequences. Tolerance is a virtue that depends upon peace and strength. History shows that it cannot survive war and devastation. A few very far-sighted Jewish people realize this and stand opposed to intervention. But the majority still do not. Their greatest danger to this country lies in their ownership and influence in our motion pictures, our press, our radio, and our government.

A Quote by Carolyn Leigh on children, dignity, home, joy, justice, learning, peace, preparation, promises, schools, and seriousness

I won't grow up I don't want to go to school Just to learn to be a parrot and recite a silly rule. If growing up means it would be beneath my dignity to climb a tree I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow uuuuuuup, not me. I won't grow up I don't want to wear a tie and a serious expression in the middle of July. And if it means I must prepare to shoulder burdens with a worried air I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow uuuuuuup, so there. Never gonna be a man, I won't Like to see somebody try and make me Anyone who wants to try and make me turn into a man, catch me if you can! I won't grow up not a peny will I pinch I will never grow a mustache or a fraction of an inch Cause growing up is awfuller than all the awful things that ever were I'll never grow up, never, grow up, never grow uuuuuuup, no sir! I won't grow up I will never even try I will do what Peter tells me and I'll never ask him why I won't grow up no, I promise that I won't I will stay a kid forever and be banished if I don't And Neverland will always be the home of peace and joy and librety I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow uuuuuuuup, not me!

A Quote by Carol L. Banks on children, fatherhood, fear, feeling, heart, justice, peace, prayer, quiet, spirit, and trust

She crept up to her father's knee to sit there quite contentedly. No word needing to be said, Laying his hand upon her head, and looking down, he gently smiled upon his treasured trusting child. 'tis thus with me approaching prayer, feeling father's spirit there. In quiet peace all fears are fled, heart so warmed, so fully fed, That, oh, it's just as though he'd smiled on me, his blessed, joyous child.

A Quote by Carl Sandburg on earth, heart, mankind, mind, paradox, and peace

Not often in the story of mankind does a man arrive on earth who is both steel and velvet, who is as hard as a rock and soft as drifting fog, who holds in his heart and mind the paradox of terrible storm and peace unspeakable and perfect.

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on life, peace, sleep, wishes, serpent, afflictions, viper, hook, precepts, remove, and rest

The poisonous serpent of afflictions is sleeping in your mind; just as if a black viper were asleep in your room.

You must use the hook of precepts to quickly remove it.

When the sleeping snake is gone, then you can rest at ease.

Buddha (563 - 483 BC)
