“We are not going to change the whole world,
but we can change ourselves and feel free as birds.
We can be serene even in the midst of calamities
and, by our serenity, make others more tranquil.
Serenity is contagious.
“It is in your power to withdraw yourself
whenever you desire.
Perfect tranquility within consists in the good ordering of the mind,
the realm of your own.”
