Quotes to remember

"The power of quiet is great. It generates the same feelings in everything one encounters.
It vibrates with the cosmic rhythm of oneness.
It is everywhere, available to anyone at any time. It is us, the force within that makes us stable, trusting, and loving. It is contemplation contemplating.
Peace is letting go – returning to the silence that cannot enter the realm of words because it is too pure to be contained in words.
This is why the tree, the stone, the river, and the mountain are quiet."~
~ Malidoma Patrice Somé

Hath been to me a more familiar face
Than that of man; and in her starry shade

–Nikola Tesla
“I ease into the idea of letting go of control and simply let life take the reins. And when I don't hold it so tightly, it doesn't thrash against me so wildly. It calms to a trot and allows me to take in the scenery, experience love, and learn what is important in this world: people, places, memories—not things or perceptions.”
― Sarah Reijonen, Country Girl: Letting Love & Wanderlust Take the Reins
“There's something nice about the silence of a car ride in the dark, going home. When you were tired of the radio and conversation, and it was okay to just be alone with your thoughts and the road ahead. If you're that comfortable with someone, you don't have to talk.”
― Sarah Dessen, What Happened to Goodbye

“The apocalypse is not something which is coming. The apocalypse has arrived in major portions of the planet and it’s only because we live within a bubble of incredible privilege and social insulation that we still have the luxury of anticipating the apocalypse.”
