    A worthy list, Pretti. I know the feeling … indeed we all need to be reminded that we ave the power to cross the shore of noise and chaos to peace and calm any time we choose. No matter how frantic life gets we always have the inexorable right to take command of our mind.

      How are you? Yes, we all need peace and quite to reflect and go forward. Sometimes life gives us so much noise, and sometimes we as people make so much noise! :-) Peace is bliss.

    Hi Preeti,
    We all need time to relax and rejuvenate. There is nothing like peace in the heart and peace in the home. What a wonderful combination. I loved your list of quotes very much.

      You are so right, being productive and “on go” can make you resent the life, peace is so much more precious than anything I have right now and I wish I had it. I am working on it. Thank you for chiming in and your friendship.

    That’s a great list. You can feel the tension dissolve as you read it.

    Interesting to see how many of them were about letting go of the past and future and simply concentrating on today. There is wisdom in that.

      I agree, our past and future are connected with our present very much so! There is lot of wisdom to learn from these wise folks. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

    What a wonderful verse about peace at the top of the page!
    All other quotes are precious. But I like most “Honor the past,
    Live in the present, Create the future.” This is more close to the reality of life.
    Good Post, ZenGirl.

    Hi Preeti,

    Great list! Some I read them before and some are new to me, but all of them are great!

    May I add one of mine?

    “When we isolate from the noise, we realize we are still alive, so the noise wasn’t so important after all”

      I love the quote you shared! It made a huge impact as I am grasping the meaning of it! Thank you for sharing it here! How have you been? I am glad to see you as always.

    Preeti, I love this collection of quotes.
    “Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows, it empties today of its strength.” It’s amazing how easy it is to worry and yet there’s such little benefit to it.

    The poem you have at the top of the post is brilliant. I hadn’t heard it before. Thank you for sharing it
