When The NYT isn’t butchering yoga (it equally wrecks your body and makes you flabby, didn’t you hear!?), it’s sneaks in lovely little op-ed pieces (“The Joy of Quiet“) that’ll make you believe in humanity again.
“Distraction is the only thing that consoles us for our miseries,” the French philosopher Blaise Pascal wrote in the 17th century, “and yet it is itself the greatest of our miseries.”
The joy of quiet. The next generation realizing the value of stillness. What beautiful things. What wisdom.
