The following excerpts were taken from our meditation books 'The Song of Life' edited by Helen Exley and 'The Saints little Book of Wisdom' compiled by Andrea Kirk Assaf. We hope these bring you small moments of peace within this season.

"The man who preserves his selfhood ever calm and unshaken by the storms of existence--not a leaf as it were, astir to the trees; not a ripple upon the surface of a shining pool--his, in the mind of the unlettered sage, is the ideal attitude and conduct of life."

Ohiyesa (1858-1939) Santee Souix


" . . . it is better to have little of what is good, than to possess much of what is not good."

Chief Dan George (1899-1981) Coast Salish


"Maintain a spirit of peace and you'll save a thousand souls"

St. Seraphim of Sarov


"The fruit of silence is prayer. The fruit of prayer is faith. The fruit of faith is love. The fruit of love is service. The fruit of service is peace."

St. Teresa of Calcutta
