937. The monotony and solitude of a quiet life stimulates the creative mind. ~Albert Einstein

If you have a trust in and an expectation of your own solitude,
everything that you need to know will be revealed to you.

Certain springs are tapped only when we are alone. Women need solitude in order to find again the true essence of themselves; that firm strand which will be the indispensable center of a whole web of human relationships. ~Anne Morrow Lindbergh

He(Jesus) said to them, “Come away by yourselves to a remote place and rest for a while.” ~Mark 6:31  ✝

  1. I am a firm believer in the importance of shutting out the never-ending din of noise that berates our minds bodies and souls day in and day out–seeking that oh so sacred time of silence and solitude–for it is in the quiet and solitude when we can finally actually hear God call our name

    • Amen and amen, my friend! I just have to have my down and quiet time. You and I both had to deal with huge amounts of never-ending and often senseless noise in the classroom. Here’s the peace and quiet that opens the door to Grace! Hugs, N 🙂 ❤

      • I think that is why I so relish the silence and quiet nowadays—I no longer even listen to the radio in the car—as I think you are right in that we spent so many years in a din of noise, chatter and chaos otherwise known as high school 🙂

    • Oh this isn’t mine, Robin. I wish it were though. I do have little places to sit and think and enjoy in my yard, I just haven’t thought to take photos of them.
      But next spring, I shall do that. Ooooh I’m sure that labyrinth is a wonderful peaceful place to visit. It is beautiful indeed. Hugs, N 🙂 ❤
