A quiet mind St Basil the Great (329 - 79) Turkey.

You must strive for a quiet mind.   If the eyes are perpetually restless, they cannot appreciate a beautiful object set before them: they glance this way and that, and so fail to discern the subtlety of the object's form and colour.    Equally, if the mind is perpetually restless, distracted by a thousand worldly concerns, it cannot apprehend the truth.
