The only alternative to coexistence is codestruction.
First keep the peace within yourself, then you can also bring peace to others.
The peace of heaven is theirs that lift their swords, in such a just and charitable war.
Life is full of so much that you refuse to let yourself experience. The blanketing comfort of love, the fulfillment of contagious laughter, the peace of finding true joy, the butterflies of uncontainable excitement…these are all things that make up life. They should never be taken for granted.
—L.B. Simmons in The Resurrection of Aubrey Miller
