We’ve All Been There, If Not for the Art Then for the Solitude

“Suddenly I’ve got an overwhelming desire to surround myself with the aura of classical and Romantic art.”

~ Sylvester Stallone


I am Silent But Present

“Because half a dozen grasshoppers under a fern make the field ring with their importunate chink, whilst thousands of great cattle, reposed beneath the shadow of the British oak, chew the cud and are silent, pray do not imagine that those who make the noise are the only inhabitants of the field.”

**Edmund Burke


Happiness at Rest

“Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just

beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may

alight upon you.”

-Nathaniel Hawthorne
