I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,

And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;

Nine bean rows will I have there, a hive for the honeybee,

And live alone in the bee-loud glade.

And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,

Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;

There midnight's all a-glimmer, and noon a purple glow,

And evening full of the linnet's wings.

I will arise and go now, for always night and day

I hear the water lapping with low sounds by the shore;

While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements gray,

I hear it in the deep heart's core.
William Butler Yeats, The Lake Isle of Innisfree
We do not seek peace in order to be at war, but we go to war that we may have peace. Be peaceful, therefore, in warring, so that you may vanquish those whom you war against, and bring them to the prosperity of peace.

Well, you took me in, you stole my heart,

I cannot roam no more.

Because love, it stays within you,

It does not wash up on a shore.

But a fighting man forgets each cut

Each knock, each bruise, each fall,

But a fighting man cannot forget

Why his love don't roam no more.
Love Don't Roam, Doctor Who
Worthy of the respect of the people are those content with a calm and frugal life.
To be happy at home is the ultimate result of all ambition, the end to which every enterprise and labour tends, and of which every desire prompts the prosecution.
He is happiest, be he king or peasant, who finds peace in his home.
There's no place like home. There's no place like home.
Dorothy, The Wizard of Oz
