Peace to all!


The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place; from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.
Pablo Picasso 

Evening Calm - Gerald Coulson

To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.
Buddha

The Ninth Wave - Ivan Aivazovsky

Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.
Albert Einstein

Golding Constable's Flower Garden - John Constable

  4. I really like the quote you have at the top. I'd never heard that before, but I'd like to think, as a writer, I am open to all in that way.I think, though, it's always an ongoing process, the remembering to be so. Thank you for this.
