Wouldn't it be nice to have a thread on quotes that we write ourselves. :)

The profound essence of peace is not the absence of crisis but the calm state of mind, founded by the strength in the faith, amidst the troubling storm.

The litany of prayers praising God in all his majesty and glory while knelt by the pew on Sundays do not make a man of faith. It simply takes heart-whole conversations with God, in your lonesome, that make you dwell in the best of everything and know his subtle presence at all times.

There is no justification to War. That is why being in it should not be a matter of choice.



Quote:
When going into war, foremost to consider is how it will end.

In times of war and conflict, good faith is most often the foundation of peace.

Accept the fact that truth is always evil, and lies are what make you happy

A mind cannot be measured with years

He’ll flip and flop and flutter till I pluck his plumage clean.
And he won’t mind a bit if I pull the feathers from his wings.

Perfection is testing all the limits of the human life and coming back from those boundaries, because then we know what all of human life is, all the boundaries of the human life learned, would be perfection, cause then we would know what not to do, and what to do.

Here's acctually a few of my own
"To believe something is perfect is imperfection in itself" (sorry jim)

And the next one is a poem that I hardly believe I wrote:

The Everlasting Tear

The worry inside me,
That feeling so dear,
The words of society,
That heart felt fear.
Let the powers that be
Have one single tear,
And let this ride for me
Show none of my fear.
No one shall ever be
With the worry I hear
No one but me
Shall know, this everlasting tear.

And for those of you who like poetry, look at this site: Poetry.Com: Free Poetry Contest, Poems, Publishing, Links and Chat. I'm published as Adam Chesi.
