Quote of the Week

“And in despair, I bowed my head;
“There is no peace on earth,” I said;
“For hate is strong,
And mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!”

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
“God is not dead, nor doth he sleep!
The Wrong shall fail,
the Right prevail,
With peace on earth, good-will to men!”

~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

 

I like this verse because it reminds us that when all seems hopeless and like there is no love left in the world, there is always hope and that we are part of making the world better.  If we just try to bring about peace in our own part of the world and if we offer good-will to all, perhaps that hope can spread.  Plus I really enjoy singing “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day”.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Peace and Good Will to all of you.

Without nations, there would be no border disputes.

~ Jasper Fforde, Something Rotten

 

This seemed appropriate.  There are a lot of words of wisdom like these to be found in Jasper Fforde’s brilliantly absurd Thursday Next series.
