Quote 9 - 24 - 11

don_socalSeptember 24, 2011

Silence is the absolute poise or balance of body, mind and spirit. The man who preserves his selfhood is ever calm and unshaken by the storms of existence ... What are the fruits of silence? They are self-control, true courage or endurance, patience, dignity and reverence. Silence is the cornerstone of character.

Ohiyesa, Wahpeton Santee Sioux

It is good to try to reach a "balance" but sometimes "stuff" happens, and it can be difficult to deal with.
On a personal note, I've been known to have all kinds of "hizzy fits" before I can get to the inner quiet.
