A love without desire is legislative committment, that turns to bitter servitude. -Larussa

Adversity is the trial of principle. Without it a man hardly knows whether he is honest or not. - Feilding
Adversity is the diamond dust  Heaven polishes it's jewels with.  - Leighton
Who hath not known ill fortune, never knew himself, or his own virtue. - Mallet
He who has no cross will have no crown. - Quarles
Genuine morality is preserved only in the school of adversity; a state of continuous prosperity may easily prove a quicksand to virtue. - Schiller
Adversity has the effect of eliciting talents which in prosperous circumstances would have laid dormant. - Horace
These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation; but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. - Jesus Christ   Jn. 16:33

How calmly may we commit ourselves to the hands of Him who bears up the world. - Richter 
Trust in God does not supersede the employment of prudent means on our part. To expect God's protection while we do nothing is not to honor but to tempt providence. - Quesnel
Trust him little who praises all, him less who censures all, and him least who is indifferent about all. - Lavater
Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the Lord; and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit the way unto the Lord; trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass. - King David  Ps.37:3-5

We love peace, but not at any price. There is a peace more destructive of the manhood of living man, than war is destructive of his body. Chains are worse than bayonets. - Jerrold
Peace is such a precious jewel that I would give anything for it but truth. - M. Henry
To be prepared for war is one of the most effectual means of preserving peace. - Washington
'Tis death to me, to be at enmity; I hate it, and desire all good men's love. - Shakespeare
There are interests by the sacrifice of which peace is too dearly purchased. One should never be at peace to the shame of his own soul, to the voilation of his integrity or of his allegiance to God. - E.H. Chapin
For He is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us. Having abolished in His flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in Himself of twain one new man, so making peace; and that He might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby; and He came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. For through Him we both have access by one spirit unto the Father. Now therefore, Ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God. - Paul the Apostle Eph. 2:14-19
