"Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder."
— Rumi (via thecalminside)
"Peace is within oneself to be found in the same place as agitation and suffering. It is not found in a forest or on a hilltop, nor is it given by a teacher. Where you experience suffering, you can also find freedom from suffering. Trying to run away from suffering is actually to run toward it."
— Ajahn Chah (via thecalminside)
