CALMNESS
[ Also see Contentment Death Equanimity Peace Repose Resignation Rest ]

Coolness and absence of heat and haste indicate fine qualities.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

O haste to shed the sovereign balm--
  My shattered nerves new string:
    And for my guest serenely calm,
      The nymph Indifference bring.
      - Mrs. Frances McCartney Fulke-Greville,
        Prayer for Indifference

How calm, how beautiful comes on
  The stilly hour, when storms are gone!
    When warring winds have died away,
      And clouds, beneath the glancing ray,
        Melt off, and leave the land and sea
          Sleeping in bright tranquillity.
      - Thomas Moore,
        Lalla Rookh--Fire Worshippers (st. 52)

They sicken of the calm, who know the storm.
      - Dorothy Rothchild Parker (Mrs. Alan Campbell)

'Tis Noon;--a calm, unbroken sleep
  Is on the blue waves of the deep;
    A soft haze, like a fairy dream,
      Is floating over wood and stream;
        And many a broad magnolia flower,
          Within its shadowy woodland bower,
            Is gleaming like a lovely star.
      - George Denison Prentice, To an Absent Wife
         (st. 2)

The noonday quiet holds the hill.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson, Oenone (l. 2)

Pure was the temperate Air, an even Calm
  Perpetual reign'd, save what the Zephyrs bland
    Breath'd o'er the blue expanse.
      - James Thomson (1), Seasons--Spring
         (l. 323)

Nothing is so aggravating than calmness.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde)
