A Quote by Charles Wesley on angels, birth, christ, death, desires, earth, glory, god, home, humility, jesus, life, love, men, mercy, nations, peace, sons, time, and women

Hark! the herald-angels sing, "Glory to the new-born King; Peace on earth, and mercy mild; God and sinners reconciled." Christ, by highest heav'n adored, Christ, the everlasting Lord, Late in time behold Him come, Offspring of a virgin's womb! Veiled in flesh the Godhead see; Hail th' incarnate Deity! Pleased as man with men to 'ppear, Jesus our Immanu'l here. Hail the heav'n-born Prince of peace! Hail the Sun of righteousness! Light and life to all He brings, Ris'n with healing in His wings. Mild He lays His glory by, Born that man no more may die; Born to raise the sons of earth, Born to give them second birth. Come, Desire of nations, come, Fix in us Thy humble home; Rise, the woman's conquering Seed Bruise in us the serpent's head. Adam's likeness now efface, Stamp Thine image in its place: Second Adam from above, Reinstate us in Thy love. Amen.

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)
