"You must not be greatly troubled about many things, but you should care for the main thing — preparing yourself for death."

"The divisions among Protestants and the necessity of an infallible judge to decide controversies, together with some promises which Christ made to his church in general that the gates of hell should not prevail against it and some others made to St Peter, and there being no person that pretends to infallibility but the Bishop of Rome."
-King James II of England on why he choose Catholicism over the errors of Protestantism.
I always come back to this masterpiece from my favorite composer.
"On the one hand, silence is like fertile soil, which, as it were, awaits our creative act, our seed, on the other hand, silence must be approached with a feeling of awe. And when we speak about silence, we must keep in mind that it has two different wings, so to speak. Silence can be both that which is outside of us and that which is inside a person. The silence of our soul, which isn't even affected by external distractions, is actually more crucial but more difficult to achieve."
