A Quote by Nancy Byrd Turner on death, garden, heart, lies, quiet, and trouble

Death is only an old door Set in a garden wall; On quiet hinges it gives, at dusk When the thrushes call. Along the lintel are green leaves, Beyond, the light lies still; Very weary and willing feet Go over that sill. There is nothing to trouble any heart; Nothing to hurt at all. Death is only an old door In a garden wall.

A Quote by Meister Eckhart on awareness, church, god, lies, prayer, quiet, and present

A man may go into the field and say his prayer and be aware of God, or he may be in Church and be aware of God; but if he is more aware of Him because he is in a quiet place, that is his own deficiency and not due to God, Who is alike present in all things and places, and is willing to give Himself everywhere so far as lies in Him... He knows God rightly who knows Him everywhere.

Meister Eckhart (c.1260 - c.1327)

A Quote by Max Ehrmann on brevity, challenge, day, freedom, lies, life, men, motherhood, music, peace, quiet, silence, sleep, soul, speech, spirit, struggle, uncertainty, universe, world, and path

Ere you lie down to sleep in the night, sit still awhile, and nurse again to life your gentler self. Forget the restless, noisy spirit of the day, and encourage to speech the soft voices within you that timidly whisper of the peace of the quiet night; and occasionally look out at the quiet stars. The night will soothe you like a tender mother, folding you against her soft bosom, and hiding you from the harm of the world. Though denied and rejected by men in the light of day, the night will not reject you and in the still of her soft shadows you are free. After the day's struggle there is no freedom like unfettered thoughts, no sound like the music of silence. And though behind you lies a road of dust and heat and discouragement, and before you the challenge and uncertainty of untried paths, in this brief hour you are master of all highways, and the universe nestles in your soul.

Max Ehrmann (1872 - 1945)

A Quote by Matthew Arnold on quiet


Strew on her roses, roses, And never a spray of yew! In quiet she reposes; Ah, would that I did too!

Courage doesn't always roar. sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, 'I will try again tomorrow.'

A Quote by Martin Luther on anxiety, belief, commitment, god, heart, labor, quiet, serenity, sleep, tranquility, and work

He who believes in God is not careful for the morrow, but labors joyfully and with a great heart. "For He giveth His beloved, as in sleep." They must work and watch, yet never be careful or anxious, but commit all to Him, and live in serene tranquility; with a quiet heart, as one who sleeps safely and quietly.

Martin Luther (1483 - 1546)

A Quote by Marie Luise Gothein on beauty, desires, happiness, hope, nature, quiet, and struggle

Rhythm, symmetry, and a happy combination of elegance and utility - a blend often desired in later days of hope and struggle - these have been fully attained, and with them a delight in quiet communion with Nature, expressing as she does the sense of beauty in orderliness.

A Quote by Margery Allingham on intuition, logic, and quiet

He did not arrive at this conclusion by the decent process of quiet, logical deduction, nor yet by the blinding flash of glorious intuition, but by the shoddy, untidy process halfway between the two by which one usually gets to know things.
