Quiet Quotes

Government does not quiet destructive human behavior - it amplifies it

Mark D. Valenti

All men's miseries derive from not being able to sit in a quiet room alone.

Blaise Pascal

Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved

Helen Adams Keller

There is always music amongst the trees in the garden, but our hearts must be very quiet to hear it.

Minnie Aumonier

You'll never have a quiet world till you knock the patriotism out of the human race.

George Bernard Shaw

It is light that reveals, light that obscures, light that communicates. It is light I "listen" to. The light late in the day has a distinct quality, as it fades toward the darkness of evening. After sunset there is a gentle leaving of the light, the air begins to still, and a quiet descends. I see magic in the quiet light of dusk. I feel quiet, yet intense energy in the natural elements of our habitat. A sense of magic prevails. A sense of mystery. It is a time for contemplation, for listening - a time for making photographs.

John Sexton

With an eye made quiet by the power of harmony, and the deep power of joy, we see into the life of things.

William Wordsworth

Let it all go and enjoy the profound gifts found in your quiet places.

Bryant McGill

The quiet conscience is an invention of the devil.

Albert Schweitzer

In encouraging other young men to come out as missionaries, do use a word of caution. One wrong-headed, conscientiously-obstinate fellow would ruin us. Humble, quiet, persevering men; men of sound, sterling talents (though, perhaps, not brilliant), of decent accomplishments, and some natural aptitude to acquire a language; men of an amiable temper, willing to take the lowest place, to be the least of all and the servants of all; men who enjoy closet religion, who live near to God, and are willing to suffer all things for Christ's sake, without being proud of it, these are the men.

Adoniram Judson

Melanctha Herbert was always losing what she had in all the things she saw. Melanctha was always being left when she was not leaving others. Melanctha Herbert always loved too hard and much too often. She was always full with mystery and subtle movements and denials and vague distrusts and complicated disillusions. Then Melanctha would be sudden and impulsive and unbounded in some faith, and then she would suffer and be strong in her repression. Melanctha Herbert was always seeking rest and quiet and always she could only find new ways to be in trouble.

Gertrude Stein

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

Mary Anne Radmacher

The trees taunt you; the sand mocks you; the water calls your name... and they say golf is a quiet game

Anonymous

When you meditate you have to try to quiet and calm the mind. There should be no thought within the mind. Right now you feel that if you can cherish twenty ideas at a time, then you are the wisest man on earth. The more thoughts that enter into our minds, the more clever we feel we are. But in the spiritual life it is not like that. If consciously we can make the mind calm and quiet, we feel that a new creation dawns inside us.

Sri Chinmoy

We are a plain quiet folk and have no use for adventures.

J.R.R. Tolkien

Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.

Henry David Thoreau

War begets quiet, quiet idleness, idleness disorder, disorder ruin; likewise ruin order, order virtue, virtue glory, and good fortune.

Walter Raleigh, Sr.

Religion is excellent stuff for keeping common people quiet

Napoleon Bonaparte

Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired, and success achieved.

Helen Keller

That is the happiest conversation where there is no competition, no vanity, but a calm, quiet interchange of sentiments

Samuel Johnson

Boys are sent out into the world to buffet with its temptations, to mingle with bad and good, to govern and direct - girls are to dwell in quiet homes among few friends, to exercise a noiseless influence.

Elizabeth Missing Sewell

Christmas will always be in the hearts of God's children everywhere as they extend a helping hand to a friend in need ... as they go about reflecting God's goodness in the little quiet and unheralded expressions of a loving heart ... as they share the light of the world with those who live in darkness .

Jane Hillsmen

What was the visit (to a park) like 25 years ago, and what is it like now?... There is no way to increase the number of quality parks. People go to the parks for quiet, solitude, and the feeling of space.

Garrett Hardin†

The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and GodÖI firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.

Anne Frank
