It’s approaching the actual hour of Midnight. So just before I throw myself into bed tonight to welcome the rest the mind needs, here are a couple of quotes on ‘Rest‘.
Here too, is a great image for you…
How beautiful it is to do nothing, and then rest afterward. ~ Spanish Proverb
A good rest is half the work. ~ Proverb
Sometimes the most urgent and vital thing you can possibly do is take a complete rest. ~ Ashleigh Brilliant
Absence of occupation is not rest; A mind quite vacant is a mind distressed. ~ William Cowper
As an eagle, weary after soaring in the sky, folds its wings and flies down to rest in its nest, so does the shining Self enter the state of dreamless sleep, where one is freed from all desires. ~ Brihadaranyaka Upanishad
