A quiet secluded life in the country, with the possibility of being useful to people to whom it is easy to do good, and who are not accustomed to have it done to them; then work which one hopes may be of some use; then rest, nature, books, music, love for one's neighbor — such is my idea of happiness. ~ Leo Tolstoy
needs to take one day away. A day in which one consciously separates
the past from the future. Jobs, family, employers, and friends can
exist one day without any one of us, and if our egos permit us to
confess, they could exist eternally in our absence. Each person
deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions
searched for. Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will
not withdraw from us. ~ Maya Angelou
I cannot rest, I must
draw, however poor the result, and when I have a bad time come over me
it is a stronger desire than ever. ~ Beatrix Potter
Love turns work into rest. ~ Teresa of Avila
Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths. ~ Etty Hillesum
Rest and be thankful. ~ William Wordsworth
