SILENCE

We all seek happiness so eagerly,
that in the pursuit we often lose
that joyous sense of existence,
and those quiet daily pleasures,
the value of which our pride alone
prevents us from acknowledging.

It has been said with some meaning,
that if [wo]men would rest in silence,
they might always hear the music
of the spheres.

~ Arthur Helps
