Nobody can bring you peace but yourself.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson~
I think that the ideal space must contain elements of magic,
serenity, sorcery and mystery.
After a storm comes a calm.
Night, the beloved, Night, when words fade and things come alive.
When the destructive analysis of day is done, and all that is truly important
becomes whole and sound again. When man reassembles his fragmentary self
and grows with the calm of a tree.
~Antoine de Saint-Exupery~
French is a language that makes those who speak it both calm and dynamic.
Be like a duck. Calm on the surface, but always paddling like the dickens underneath.
Sometimes I sits and thinks, and sometimes I just sits.
What I dream of is an art of balance, of purity and serenity devoid of troubling
or depressing subject matter - a soothing, calming influence on the mind,
rather like a good armchair which provides relaxation from physical fatigue.
Slow down and everything you are chasing will come around and catch you.
~John De Paola~
The love of learning, the sequestered nooks, And all the sweet serenity of books.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow~
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.
If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.
