On Quiet

Nikki Gemmell
International bestselling author Nikki Gemmell writes on the power of quiet in today's shouty world.

Quiet comes as a shock in these troubled times.

Quietism means 'devotional contemplation and abandonment of the will . a calm acceptance of things as they are'. Gemmell makes the case for why quiet is steadily gaining ground in this noisy age: Why we need it now more than ever. How to glean quiet, hold on to it, and work within it.

Yet I do still wish for more quiet, and I am reassured to find a fellow traveller in Gemmell.”
