QUIET
[ Also see Action Noise Peace Repose Rest Silence Sleep Solitude Sound ]

Be it mine to draw from wisdom's fount, pure as it flows, that calm of soul which virtue only knows.
      - Aeschylus

Fullness is always quiet; agitation will answer for empty vessels only.
      - Amos Bronson Alcott

An inability to stay quiet is one of the conspicuous failings of mankind.
      - Walter Bagehot

For thus saith the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not.
      - Bible, Isaiah (ch. XXX, v. 15)

The heart that is to be filled to the brim with holy joy must be held still.
      - George Seaton Bowes

If we have not quiet in our minds, outward comfort will do no more for us than a golden slipper on a gouty foot.
      - John Bunyan

The grandest operations, both in nature and in grace, are the most silent and imperceptible. The shallow brook babbles in its passage, and is heard by every one; but the coming on of the seasons is silent and unseen. The storm rages and alarms, but its fury is soon exhausted, and its effects are partial and soon remedied; but the dew, though gentle and unheard, is immense in quantity, and the very life of large portions of the earth. And these are pictures of the operations of grace in the church and in the soul.
      - Richard Cecil

A gentleman makes no noise; a lady is serene.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Tranquillity consisteth in a steadiness of the mind; and how can that vessel that is beaten upon by contrary waves and winds, and tottereth to either part, be said to keep a steady course? Resolution is the only mother of security.
      - Joseph Hall

Stillness of person and steadiness of features are signal marks of good breeding. Vulgar persons can't sit still, or, at least, they must work their limbs or features.
      - Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.

Silken, chaste, and hushed.
      - John Keats (1)

All quiet along the Potomac.
      - originated by George Brinton McClellan,
        a proverbial phrase supposedly originated by him

My notions of life are much the same as they are about traveling; there is a good deal of amusement on the road; but, after all, one wants to be at rest.
      - Robert Southey

In quiet places, reason abounds.
      - Adlai E. Stevenson

Quiet minds cannot be perplexed or frightened but go on in fortune or misfortune at their own private pace, like a clock during a thunderstorm.
      - Robert Louis Stevenson

It is tranquil people who accomplish much.
      - Henry David Thoreau
