As we go through life, we are constantly faced with turbulence and agitation.
That’s why it is an imperative to find a peaceful place in us, some clear space where we can relax, feel our inner reality, and be in touch with ourselves.
The following famous quotes about tranquility can help us do that:
The real spiritual progress of the aspirant is measured by the extent to which he achieves inner tranquility. ~Swami Sivananda
We are not going to change the whole world, but we can change ourselves and feel free as birds. We can be serene even in the midst of calamities and, by our serenity, make others more tranquil. Serenity is contagious. If we smile at someone, he or she will smile back. And a smile costs nothing. We should plague everyone with joy. If we are to die in a minute, why not die happily, laughing? ― Swami Satchidananda
Our life depends on the kind of thoughts we nurture. If our thoughts are peaceful, calm, meek, and kind, then that is what our life is like. If our attention is turned to the circumstances in which we live, we are drawn into a whirlpool of thoughts and can have neither peace nor tranquility. ― Thaddeus of Vitovnica
Peace is not the absence of chaos. It is the presence of tranquility and joy in the midst of chaos. ― Debasish Mridha
Talent develops in tranquility, character in the full current of human life. —Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
What comes, when it comes, will be what it is. ― Alberto Caeiro
If you are driven by fear, anger or pride nature will force you to compete. If you are guided by courage, awareness, tranquility and peace nature will serve you. ― Amit Ray
For those who wish to climb the mountain of spiritual awareness, the path is selfless work. For those who have attained the summit of union with the Lord, the path is stillness and peace. –Bhagavad Gita
There is nothing so lovely and enduring in the regions which surround us, above and below, as the lasting peace of a mind centered in God. -Yoga Vasishtha
The poor long for riches, the rich long for heaven, but the wise long for a state of tranquility. –Swami Rama
Like water which can clearly mirror the sky and the trees only so long as its surface is undisturbed, the mind can only reflect the true image of the Self when it is tranquil and wholly relaxed. ~Indra Devi
The more tranquil a man becomes, the greater is his success, his influence, his power for good. Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom. ~James Allen
