Q is for Quietness

Have you ever heard the wonderful silence just before the dawn or the quiet and calm just as a storm ends? Or perhaps you know the silence when you haven't the answer to a question you've been asked, or the hush of a country road at night, or the expectant pause of a room full of people when someone is just about to speak, or, most beautiful of all, the moment after the door closes and you're alone in the whole house? Each one is different, you know, and all very beautiful if you listen carefully.” Norton Juster, The Phantom Tollbooth

Only in quietness do we possess our own minds and discover the resources of the Inner Life.”

Helen Keller

We need quiet time to examine our lives openly and honestly – spending quiet time alone gives your mind an opportunity to renew itself and create order.” Susan L Taylor

In quietness the soul expands.” Rockwell Kent
