Nativity, woodblock print, c. 1920.

Wisdom on Wednesdays—Peace cannot be the principal aim

“Peace, like Beauty, cannot be the principal aim—cannot be directly striven for.  Such neutralities are the result of safeguarding activities, beauty being a by-product of life.  Peace is a secondary result of active justice (not legality) and active charity (not philanthropy).”  (1931)
