“This basic law holds good: nothing great without serenity.
“There are people who are trying to substitute thrills for serenity. Having no serenity at home within themselves, they run away into sensations, spend as much time as possible away from themselves amid their thrills, and then at last have to come back again to no serenity.
“That is the very essence of unhappiness.”
"The High Uses of Serenity," Dr. Harry Emerson Fosdick
