I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions and not our circumstances.
- Martha Washington
"Somewhere deep inside of us there is a place that is quiet no matter what is going on. We can't always reach this place, but it is there. In painful times or fearful times it helps to know it is there and we can try to reach it.
"Sitting quietly, being with our breath, we can stop the chattering of our mind and find this place, even if it is only for a moment.
"It feels so good to know that God has given me an inner sanctuary where I can always go and find peace."
