There is no beautifier of complexion, or form, or behavior, like the wish to scatter joy and not pain around us.

Peace and quiet

Action and excitement and activity are all great. So are peace and quiet.

If you spend all your time having entertainment and information fed to you, there’s no time left to find meaning in it all. On a regular basis, disconnect from the constant feed and reconnect with the beautiful reality of who you are.

You don’t have to see and hear and know everything the instant it happens. Much of the value of knowledge comes from taking the time to process what you know.

Your power to imagine is one of the most useful and valuable abilities you have. Yet if you are constantly overloaded with intense incoming sensations, your amazing imagination will begin to wither.

There’s exquisite music of your own making to be found in moments of peaceful silence. For a little while, let go of what they are saying and rediscover who you are.

Delight in the sights, sounds, thrills and excitement of life. And find profound treasure in the peace and quiet.

— Ralph Marston
