Title: Quotes on holiness and quiet
Post by: susanna on April 29, 2014, 10:18:57 AM
Whoever sits in solitude and is quiet has escaped from three wars:  hearing, speaking, and seeing.  Yet against one thing he must constantly battle: his own heart. 
St. Antony Abbot

So it is with all holy men, they love to be not where sumptuous banquets are, but where holiness flourishes. 
Thomas Aquinas

Only those who have known the silence and solitude of a hermit's cell can understand its blessings and joys. 
St. Bruno

That's really splendid. I really love those quotes.

Thank you Susanna.

Thanks be to God and to Mary Ever Virgin, and all the Archangels, Angels, and Saints. . .
