“The quiet place is the think tank of the soul.”


“It reaches deeply. By going into nature and letting go, and reaching that deep spiritual level, quiet is quieting. It is also medically healing in that it’s lowering your blood pressure and taking those stress hormones out of your blood stream. But it’s also in the peace of mind. How often do we use the words peace and quiet  together in the same breath?” — Gordon Hempton
