PEACE, WE OFTEN HEARD IT SAID, is not the absence of war. It’s the presence of something. Nor is love the absence of hatred.

A man come home from a very tough day at office, and he said to his wife, “I’ve had a bad day. Please, if you ‘ve any bad news tonight, keep it to yourself!” To which she replied, “O.K. No bad news. Now for the good news. Remember our four children? Well, three of them didn’t break an arm today!”
