Sunday Dinner: Tranquility


“Quiet is peace. Tranquility.
Quiet is turning down the volume knob on life.
Silence is pushing the off button.
Shutting it down. All of it.”
Khaled Hosseini



“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.”
Marcus Aurelius



“Our life depends on the kind of thoughts we nurture.
If our thoughts are peaceful, calm,
meek, and kind; then that is what our life is like.
If our attention is turned
to the circumstances in which we live,
we are drawn into a whirlpool of thoughts
and can have neither peace
nor tranquility.”
Thaddeus of Vitovnica
“Sometimes you just have to find something
to keep your body grounded,
your mind flexible, and your heart open.”

“Peace is not the absence of chaos.
It is the presence of tranquility and joy
in the midst of chaos.”
Debasish Mridha
