Quiet life, happy life

“A happy life must be to a great extent a quiet life, for it is only in an atmosphere of quiet that true joy can live.” –Bertrand Russell

Even when I’ve got the chance for quiet moments, I often fill them with noise and distraction.

Can I just be still?

Why not let the quiet steep? Let me sit past the restlessness to find the beauty and joy in the quiet.

“All of humanity’s problems stem from man’s inability to sit quietly in a room alone.” –Blaise Pascal
