"Quiet industry is a challenge. Life is filled with hurry and haste. We are summoned to calmness, to peace of mind. Multi-tasking leads to poor performance, tension, and exhaustion. We live in an insane world searching for a civil moment to retrieve our sanity. The in-box is full. The to-do-list is long. The fast lane allows no parking. God is lost in the whirl of motion. Our soul suffers malnutrition. We rebel against the silliness but continue to be silly. We talk when we should be silent, busy when we should be still."
