Silence is not necessarily tight-lipped and absolute…but the tranquility of necessary leisure in which Religious can relax in the peace of a friendly and restful solitude and once again become themselves.
Who cares if there was really any Being to pray to? What mattered was the sense of giving thanks and praise, the feeling of a humble and grateful heart.
When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.
The sea has never been friendly to man. At most it has been the accomplice of human restlessness.
