A Quote by Allen E. Claxton, DD on brothers, civilization, cooperation, dependence, earth, god, justice, mercy, nature, peace, truth, world, and worship

God has a plan of justice, mercy, truth, cooperation and brotherhood which will bring peace upon this earth. As we worship God these qualities become part of our nature and we become fit inhabitants of the world God created. Human beings should worship God not alone to show their allegiance and dependence upon their Creator, but to absorb from Him the essential qualities of a permanent civilization.

A Quote by Alice Malsenior Walker on love, peace, praise, truth, and war

War will stop when we no longer praise it, or give it any attention at all. Peace will come wherever it is sincerely invited. Love will overflow every sanctuary given it. Truth will grow where the fertilizer that nourishes it is also truth.

A Quote by Alfred North Whitehead on authority, children, christ, christianity, despair, doubt, god, inconsistency, life, love, motherhood, nature, peace, suffering, sympathy, uncertainty, victory, words, and world

The essence of Christianity is the appeal to the life of Christ as a revelation of the nature of God and of God's agency in the world. The record is fragmentary, inconsistent, and uncertain. . . . But there can be no doubt as to what elements in the record have evoked a response from all that is best in human nature. The Mother, the Child, and the bare manger: the lowly man, homeless and self-forgetful, with his message of peace, love, and sympathy: the suffering, the agony, the tender words as life ebbed, the final despair: and the whole with the authority of supreme victory.
