Liu Yiming
“Stupidity and Madness

The Tao is clear, yet this clarity requires you to sweep away all your clutter. At all times watch out for your own stupidity, be careful of how your mind jumps around. When nothing occurs to involve your mind, you return to true awareness. When unified mindfulness is purely real, you comprehend the great restoration. The ridiculous ones are those who try to cultivate quietude - as long as body and mind are unstable, it is madness to go into the mountains.”
Liu Yiming, Awakening to the Tao

“The more a person knows the less they talk. I shall cease speaking and endeavor to instill a large band of silence inside myself in order to forge a deeper and closer relationship with all of nature.

Only when I achieve absolute stillness shall I come to a perfect realization of the meaning of existence innate in all things.”

Kate McGahan
“You wonder why you can’t see me,
Sense me, feel me…?
When you are outpouring your emotion,
it is like me trying to climb up a waterfall
To get to you.
But if you are calm and have faith in me,
I can sail right over to you
On the still waters of your soul.”
Kate McGahan, Jack McAfghan: Return from Rainbow Bridge

Danny Penman
“A quietude profunda que tanto buscamos não surge porque o mundo está parado ou porque a mente está serena. A quietude é alimentada quando permitimos que as coisas sejam como são, no momento em que estamos. Momento a momento e respiração a respiração.
(meditação 4 - respiração e corpo)”
Danny Penman, Mindfulness: atenção plena

R.B. O'Brien
“I look out my window a lot.

​It’s just one of those things that keeps me grounded in this weird, one-with-nature kind of way. I hate curtains. They only gather dust. And I hate alarms even more. I enjoy the natural light to whisper across my face in the morning with gentle fingers, not some man-made sound that jars me into life with a harsh slap. It is the quiet moments of the morning that I savor most, in bed, looking out my window. It’s when I write my best work.”
R.B. O'Brien
