Sorry-I posted this under Quotes July 9, 2011 also

Peace in ourselves, peace in the world.
- Thich Nhat Hanh

Perhaps the most important thing we bring to another person is the silence in us, not the sort of silence that is filled with unspoken criticism or hard withdrawal. The sort of silence that is a place of refuge, of rest, of acceptance of someone as they are. We are all hungry for this other silence. It is hard to find. In its presence we can remember something beyond the moment, a strength on which to build a life. Silence is a place of great power and healing.

- Rachel Naomi Remen

We rely upon the poets, the philosophers, and the playwrights to articulate what most of us can only feel, in joy and sorrow. They illuminate the thoughts for which we only grope; they give us the strength and balm we cannot find in ourselves. Whenever I feel my courage wavering I rush to them. They will give me the wisdom of acceptance, the will and resilience to push on.

- Helen Hayes

I long, as does every human being, to be at home wherever I find myself.

- Maya Angelou

Husky, these are so wonderful! I am getting ready for bed and shall ruminate over these while settling my mind toward rest.
