I love the quiet. What I love about silence is that you have nothing else to focus on except for the here and now. You look within yourself. If you sit in the quiet long enough, you even connect with yourself. I become more appreciative of my life and I pray more when my mind is free. I'd like to share some wonderful quotes about quietness.

Prayer is commission. Out of the quietness with God, power is generated that turns the spiritual machinery of the world. When you pray, you begin to feel the sense of being sent, that the divine compulsion is upon you. – E. Stanley Jones

We need quiet time to examine our lives openly and honestly. . . spending quiet time alone gives your mind an opportunity to renew itself and create order. – Susan L. Taylor

True silence is the rest of the mind, and is to the spirit what sleep is to the body, nourishment and refreshment. – William Penn

We live in a very tense society. We are pulled apart… and we all need to learn how to pull ourselves together…. I think that at least part of the answer lies in solitude. – Helen Hayes

I'm spending the next few days in the woods and will be immersing myself in nature. I will embrace the quiet and allow it to feed my soul. Q, R and S posts are all scheduled ahead of time. I look forward to connecting with the rest of the A to Z bloggers upon my return.


  1. An excellent choice for Q. While some people wish for some quietness I yearn for a bit of noise, living on my own is not to be reccomended, Thank goodness for blogging.


  2. Wonderful post! I also wrote a bit about quiet on my blog. I don't know what I'd do without at least a little time to myself each day.
