"I will now allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak tenderly to her." --Hosea 2:14

Painting by Henri LeBasque

"Solitude and silence are guests of the soul.  The soul that possesses them carries them with it everywhere.  The one that lacks them finds them nowhere.  In order to re-enter silence, it is not enough to stop the movement of one's lips and the movement of one's thoughts.  That is only being quiet.  Being quiet is a a condition for silence, but it is not silence.  Silence is a word, silence is a thought.  It is a word and a thought in which all words and all thoughts are concentrated."
                                                                                   Carthusian Dom Augustin Guillerand
