Quiet Quotes

Be plain in dress, and sober in your diet; / In short, my deary! kiss me, and be quiet.

Mary Worley Montagu

I thoroughly disapprove of duels. If a man should challenge me, I would take him kindly and forgivingly by the hand and lead him to a quiet place and kill him.

Mark Twain

How do you meditate? You meditate with an inner cry. There should be an inner cry here, in the heart. The outer cry is ego-centred; it wants name and fame. ... While you are feeling this inner cry, you try to make the mind absolutely calm and quiet. If a thought enters your mind, you try to reject it. Consider this thought as a fly. When a fly comes to land on your arm, you don't allow the fly to remain; you just wave your hand and it goes away

Sri Chinmoy

The harvest of a quiet eye, That broods and sleeps on his own heart.

William Wordsworth

I was a peaceful sedentary man, a lover of a quiet life, with no appetite for perils and commotions. But I was beginning to realise that I was very obstinate.

John Buchan, 1st Baron Tweedsmuir

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
