HOW TO ATTAIN PEACE

 

We could have peace to our hearts’ content, if only we would and concern ourselves with the things other people are saying and doing, things which are no business of ours. How can a man expect to have lasting peace when he is always minding other people’s business, always looking out for the chance of engaging in external activities, so that recollection is only possible in small degree, or at rare intervals? Blessed are the simple; they shall have peace to their hearts’ content.                  (The Imitation of Christ)
