Great events make me quiet and calm; it is only trifles that irritate my nerves.
He who is of calm and happy nature will hardly feel the pressure of age, but to him who is of an opposite disposition youth and age are equally a burden.
“Love is much like a wild rose, beautiful and calm, but willing to draw blood in its defense.”
“I never felt settled or calm. You can't really commit to life when you feel that.”
