Various life elements have been a bit in flux for me lately. Therefore, I thought an apt topic to explore through quotations would be “peace of mind,” which has been in short supply the past few weeks.
And thus, below are a few thoughts about that sometimes elusive concept.
“Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others. He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind.” — Buddha
“Nothing external to you has any power over you.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart … live in the question.” — Rainer Maria Rilke (from Letters to a Young Poet)
