Paul Theroux on Serenity

“He was serene, fulfilled, the real thing, the person no one wants to hear about, a happy man.”

~ Paul Theroux

Garry Wills on Serenity

Preserve serenity. That’s what people really treasure—when somebody shows a real peace with themselves and with others. To keep that serenity through all of life’s hard blows sets a person apart.

~ Garry Wills
