Friday Filosophy #2016-16

One of the many challenges we have in this workplace and life is the use of time, the constant pressures, the feeling of being out of control of our lives. With that in mind I offer you some quotes on Serenity in Friday Filosophy #2016-16. I have been searching for serenity in my life for many years now. The search continues.

Thomas Szasz

A conviction that you are a daughter of God gives you a feeling of comfort in your self-worth. It means that you can find strength in the balm of Christ. It will help you meet the heartaches and challenges with faith and serenity.

James E. Faust.


A garden must contain the mysterious with a feeling of serenity and joy.

Luis Barragan


I started running around my 30th birthday. I wanted to lose weight; I didn’t anticipate the serenity. Being in motion, suddenly my body was busy so my head could work out some issues I had swept under a carpet of wine and cheese. Good therapy, that’s a good run.
