Love in a Peaceful World

One of the songs I love so much...oldie but goodie he he he..."Love in a Peaceful World" by Level 24. Boring clip, but just enjoy the song!!!

Some quotations to read while listening to the song:

Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.
~ Robert Louis Stevenson

What great thing would you attempt if you knew you could not fail?
~ Robert H. Schuller

By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.
~ Confucius

You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.
~ Mohandas K. Gandhi

I'm sure we've all read this poem before, but it's just so good that I have to share it again:

People are unreasonable, illogical and self-centered.
Love them anyway.
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.
If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.
The biggest person with the biggest ideas can be
shot down by the smallest person with the smallest mind.
Think big anyway.
What you spend years building may
be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.
People really need help but may attack if you help them.
Help people anyway.
Give the world the best you have
and you might get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you've got anyway.

- Mother Teresa
