Etiquette teaches the distinct elegance of demeanor. ― P.S. Jagadeesh Kumar

Iris

I have a different idea of elegance. I don’t dress like a fop, it’s true, but my moral grooming is impeccable. I never appear in public with a soiled conscience, a tarnished honor, threadbare scruples, or an insult that I haven’t washed away. I’m always immaculately clean, adorned with independence and frankness. I may not cut a stylish figure, but I hold my soul erect. I wear my deeds as ribbons, my wit is sharper then the finest mustache, and when I walk among men I make truths ring like spurs. ― Edmond Rostand, Cyrano de Bergerac

“Ease your mind earth child, your expecting too much of yourself. Acceptance comes in waves and today you may be drowning but tomorrow you could conquer the entire ocean. Take each day as it comes and flow into it’s course, sometimes control isn’t the only option. Sit down, rest and re group for a while – you owe yourself that much.”― Niki Rowe

“God never asked us to meet life’s pressures and demands on our own terms or by relying upon our own strength. Nor did He demands that we win His favor by assembling an impressive portfolio of good deeds. Instead, He invites us to enter His rest.”― Charles R. Swindoll

Iris

“Listen to your soul and protect it always. When you are completely exhausted , please rest. When your soul is so tired, this is when your personal power is at the greatest risk for attacks, not only externally but internally. It is okay to take care of you, rest, get back up, and then continue to move forward.” ― Christine E. Szymanski

“A little bit of rest can go a long way.”― A.D. Aliwat, In Limbo

I am a believer in silence. The value of silence. The power of silence. The space that isn’t an absence but a presence. A pause that is bigger than the noise that surrounds it.
