“Many people today look for silence, solitude and peace.
They dream of places where they can rest,
away from the daily hassles of living
which tear them apart, exhaust them and leave them dissatisfied,
wounded and bleeding and always alone.
But they won’t necessarily find peace and quiet
waiting for them in other places.
There is a place within us
where quiet reigns, the center, our heart of hearts…
But who will guide us there?
We must learn the way.”
Michael Quoist, With Open Heart
