When One Gets Quiet



When one gets quiet, then something wakes up inside one, something happy and quiet like the stars.

  3. I read and re-read... pondered and pondered... winter's pretty quiet over here... except of course, for the foraging boars...

  5. What a wonderful quote. So often in these times of electronics, we don't hear quiet anymore. It is a wonderful sound. Thanks for the reminder for us to cherish it.

  6. I am having moments....and things are getting more clear! I'm quiet and still....I look around, and suddenly everything comes into focus and I remember that I am alive, breathing and that the world around me is filled with wonders!

  8. This is a very nice quote and apropos of the dormant winter season. I just came out of a quiet spell myself. It's important to take time and recharge on occasion.

  11. Interesting quote. Usually when it gets really quiet in my house, I can hear dogs farting. They think I don't know, but I do.

Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind.
"Pooh!" he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw. "I just wanted to be sure of you."
~A.A. Milne
