Women opened the windows of my eyes and the doors of my spirit.
Had it not been for the woman-mother, the woman-sister, and the woman-friend,
I would have been sleeping among those who seek the tranquility of the world with their snoring.
Kahlil Gibran (1883 – 1931)
There will be calmness, tranquility,
when one is free from external objects and is not perturbed.
I know exactly what I want. Everything.
Calm, peace, tranquility, freedom, fun, happiness.
If I could make all that one word,
I would – a many-syllabled word.
Great tranquility of heart
is his who cares for neither praise nor blame.
Thomas a Kempis (1380 – 1471)
