“There is . . .
the fertile silence of awareness, pasturing the soul . . .
the alive silence of alert perception . . .
the silence of peaceful accord with other persons
or communion with the cosmos.”
– Paul Goodman, Speaking and Language –
Nurture peace. Cultivate kindness. Pasture your soul, and carry the calm.
