Most quotes from www.quotegarden.com and most photos by Jessica.

Hurry is the great enemy of spiritual life in our day. Hurry can destroy our souls. Hurry can keep us from living well ... For many of us the great danger is not that we will renounce our faith. It is that we will become so distracted and rushed and preoccupied that we will settle for a mediocre version of it. (John Ortberg)

Life is not an emergency. (Anne Voskamp)

The mark of a successful man is one that has spent an entire day on the bank of a river without feeling guilty about it. ~Author Unknown

Don't underestimate the value of Doing Nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can't hear, and not bothering. ~Pooh's Little Instruction Book, inspired by A.A. Milne

How beautiful it is to do nothing, and then to rest afterward. ~Spanish Proverb

Stress is nothing more than a socially acceptable form of mental illness. ~Richard Carlson

To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring - it was peace. ~Milan Kundera

The time to relax is when you don't have time for it. ~Attributed to both Jim Goodwin and Sydney J. Harris
