“The Sabbaths are our great cathedrals…”
— Abraham Joshua Heschel
“In an age of speed, I began to think, nothing could be more invigorating than going slow. In an age of distraction, nothing could feel more luxurious than paying attention. And in an age of constant movement, nothing is more urgent than sitting still.”
— Pico Iyer
note: quoted fromThe Art of Stillness by Pico Iyer which I just finished reading.
