To do great work a man must be very idle as well as very industrious.
~ Samuel Butler
Quietude, which some men cannot abide because it reveals their inward poverty, is as a palace of cedar to the wise, for along its hallowed courts the King in His beauty deigns to walk.

~ Anonymous fourth century desert monk
