St Bruno Carthusian founder

“If the bow is stretched for too long, it becomes slack and unfit for its purpose.”

“The cross is steady while the world is turning.”

“The ambiance of solitude, the absence of any disturbing noise and of worldly desires and images, the quiet and calm attention of the mind to God, helped by prayer and leisurely reading, flow into that “quies” or “rest” of the soul in God. A simple and joyful rest, full of God, that leads the monk to feel, in some way, the beauty of eternal life.”
