Welcome to your weekly Wednesday Wisdom column, where you’ll find a midweek dose of inspiration in written form. From Patanjali to Paul McCartney, Jesus to Jay-Z, Shakespeare to Sharon Salzburg, and every one in between, a little food for thought and a moment to remove yourself for reflection.

Yogas citta vrtti nirodhah.
Yoga is the restraint of the changes of the mind.
