A little amateur painting in water colors shows the innocent and the quiet mind. ~Robert Louis Stevenson

He has the gift of quiet.
~John Le Carré

I'm looking forward to becoming older and quieter.
~ Gwyneth Paltrow

All miseries derive from not being able to sit quietly in a room alone.
~Blaise Pascal

Take time to be quiet.
Zig Ziglar

I'm in need of some quiet. I'll try to find some on this cold Friday morning. Maybe a bath first, but after that I'll have to hunt for it. Middle schools breathe noisy. Yesterday was noise all day.
I wish you quiet, too.

Oh Pom Pom! Love your interpretation of Van gogh's room header - one of my favorite paintings. With regard to your post on "quiet" - oh how I do love the quiet and peace.
But even more - I love the delicious package of wonderfully thoughtful things I received in the mail from you yesterday - each piece fun and special - the Eric Carl butterfly, the journal and flower stickers, the yummy jelly beans and the wonderful Pom Pom Playlist which I do believe I have worn out already. Thank you so much for brightening my day. I have been quite sick with the flu (after taking care of my daughter who had it for a week!) and it really cheered me up. Thank you so muich.

Pom pom, the words 'quiet' and 'school' dont fit together!

Love the picture at the top!

It is definitely not quiet here this morning! The grandkids are visiting and they keep my busy. (not to mention they love to run and scream.
