A Quote by Adyashanti on awakening, quiet, freedom, self, enlightenment, and emptiness

When you rest in quietness and your image of yourself fades, and your image of the world fades, and your ideas of others fade, what's left? A brightness, a radiant emptiness that is simply what you are.

A Quote by Anne Morrow Lindbergh on woman, time, peace, quiet, and longing

Traditionally we are taught, and instinctively we long, to give where it is needed - and immediately.  Eternally; woman spills herself away in driblets to the thirsty, seldom being allowed the time, the quiet, the peace, to let the pitcher fill up to the brim

A Quote by Baba Ram Dass on question, quiet, and action

The question we need to ask ourselves is whether there is any place we can stand in ourselves where we can look at all that's happening around us without freaking out, where we can be quiet enough to hear our predicament, and where we can begin to find ways of acting that are at least not contributing to further destabilization.

A Quote by Mamkhai Norbu Rinpoche on bee, flowers, teachings, deer, quiet, alone, seclusion, and teachers

From all kinds of flowers,
Seek teachings everywhere,
Like a deer that finds
A quiet place to graze,
Seek Seclusion to digest
All you have gathered. . .
