    "The power of quiet is great. It generates the same feelings in everything one encounters.
    It vibrates with the cosmic rhythm of oneness.
    It is everywhere, available to anyone at any time. It is us, the force within that makes us stable, trusting, and loving. It is contemplation contemplating.
    Peace is letting go – returning to the silence that cannot enter the realm of words because it is too pure to be contained in words.
    This is why the tree, the stone, the river, and the mountain are quiet."~
    ~ Malidoma Patrice Somé

    “I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.” - James Madison

    "I linger yet with Nature, for the night
    Hath been to me a more familiar face
    Than that of man; and in her starry shade
    Of dim and solitary loveliness,
    I learn'd the language of another world.”
    ― George Gordon Byron, Manfred

    “We are whirling through endless space with inconceivable speed, all around us everything is spinning, everything is moving, everywhere is energy. There must be some way of availing ourselves of this energy more directly. Then, with the light obtained from the medium, with the power derived from it, with every form of energy obtained without effort, from the store forever inexhaustible, humanity will advance with giant strides.”
    –Nikola Tesla

    “I ease into the idea of letting go of control and simply let life take the reins. And when I don't hold it so tightly, it doesn't thrash against me so wildly. It calms to a trot and allows me to take in the scenery, experience love, and learn what is important in this world: people, places, memories—not things or perceptions.”
    ― Sarah Reijonen, Country Girl: Letting Love & Wanderlust Take the Reins

    “There's something nice about the silence of a car ride in the dark, going home. When you were tired of the radio and conversation, and it was okay to just be alone with your thoughts and the road ahead. If you're that comfortable with someone, you don't have to talk.”
    ― Sarah Dessen, What Happened to Goodbye

    FYI: "Between 10-36 and 10-34 seconds after the Big Bang, the physical scale of our universe doubled in size more than 50 times, so that by today, it is trillions of times larger than the 14 billion-light-year extent we can observe."---Sten Odenwald, Astronomy Magazine

    “The apocalypse is not something which is coming. The apocalypse has arrived in major portions of the planet and it’s only because we live within a bubble of incredible privilege and social insulation that we still have the luxury of anticipating the apocalypse.”
    ― Terence McKenna
