We search for peace in our noisy, hectic world. We travel the world looking for it, we buy things thinking they’ll give it to us, and we talk to other people hoping they’ll be able to help us.
We don’t realize we’ve had the key all along. It’s turning to the silence within and being still with it. Then, inside our heart and soul, we find the peace that has always been there.
Here are several quotes about silence:
