Silence + Composure leads to Being Someone
“Silence overcomes noise and talk. Composure is the victory over distractions and unrest. Only the composed person is really someone." Because of our restlessness, confusion, distraction and disorder... "we do not yet really exist as persons -- at least not persons God can address expecting a fitting response. We are bundles of feelings, fancies, thoughts, and plans all at cross-purposes with each other. The first thing to do, then, is to quiet and collect ourselves.” - Theologian Romano Guardini bridges thought that leads from art, from literature, from philosophy - to religion.
