Laurence Sterne
From Follow Peace

The prophet Isaiah styles Our Saviour the Prince of Peace, long before he came into the world; and to answer the title, he chose to enter into it when all nations were at peace with each other; which was in the days of Augustus, – when the temple of Janus was shut, and all the alarms of war were hushed and silenced throughout the world. At his birth, the host of heaven descended, and proclaimed peace on earth, as the best state and temper the world could be in to receive and welcome the Author of it.
