A Quote by Edgar Allan Poe on life, misery, quiet, rest, soul, time, and tragedy

Finally on Sunday morning, October 7, 1849, "He became quiet and seemed to rest for a short time. Then, gently, moving his head, he said, "Lord help my poor soul." As he had lived so he died-in great misery and tragedy.

A Quote by E. F. Weisslitz on day and quiet


These bursting yellow pears I hold, In burning hands so lately cold, My quiet autumn day confound; I feel my fingers pressing round In quick delight - old thoughts renew . . . Ah, who's to say when summer's through?

A Quote by Dr. Deepak Chopra on day, meditation, mind, and quiet

Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It's a way of entering into the quiet that's already there-buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average person thinks every day.

A Quote by Donald C. Peattie on generations, happiness, love, and quiet

There are always some of us, not a few, in every generation, who go over wholly to the green flag. It is such a passionless fealty, so reticent a love, that neither do trumpets sound for it nor quarrels arise from it. Only, you will find that those who have pledged allegiance are happy about it in quiet.

A Quote by Chuang Chou, a.k.a. Chuang Tzu, Chuang Tse Chuang on action, concern, emptiness, inaction, joy, quiet, sage, silence, stillness, and study

The non-action of the wise man is not inaction. It is not studied. It is not shaken by anything. The sage is quiet because he is not moved, not because he wills to be quiet. . . . Joy does all things without concern. For emptiness, stillness, tranquillity, tastelessness, silence, and non-action are the root of all things.

Chuang Tzu (c.360 BC - c. 275 BC)

I need not shout my faith. Thrice eloquent Are quiet trees and the green listening sod; Hushed are the stars, whose power is never spent; The hills are mute: yet how they speak of God!
