Spring is Coming !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Silence is so under-rated.
1. God’s poet is silence! His song is unspoken
And yet so profound, and so loud, and so far,
That it thrills you and fills you in measures unbroken—
The unceasing song of the first morning star….
~Joaquin Miller, from “The True Poet,” In Classic Shades, And Other Poems, 1890
2. True silence is the rest of the mind; it is to the spirit what sleep is to the body, nourishment and refreshment. ~William Penn
3. We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass – grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence…. We need silence to be able to touch souls. ~Mother Teresa
The cure for anything is salt water – sweat, tears, or the sea. ~Isak Dinesen
After a certain number of years, our faces become our biographies. ~Cynthia Ozick, The Paris Review
Sunset and Seagulls
When I admire the wonder of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in worship of the Creator. ~Mahatma Gandhi
