Calmness belongs to the strong – Sri Aurobindo Thoughts and Quotes

True quietude is a very great force, a very great strength. Man becomes God and human activity reaches its highest and noblest when it succeeds in bringing body, heart and mind in touch with spirit. Desire is the chief enemy of spiritual perfection. Calmness belongs to the strong. Man’s greatness is not in what he is but in what he makes possible. To recognize one’s weakness and to move away from them is the step towards liberation.
