Study to Be Quiet

Posted in Blog, Quotes, Silence, Wisdom

Isaac Walton’s motto was “Study to be quiet.”

It’s a wonderful saying and holds a great deal of wisdom. In this era of smartphones, email, Twitter, and 24-hour news, we all need some quiet time for reflection.

Unfortunately, this is easier said than done. Being quiet is, surprisingly, hard. It requires work. It might even require “study” as Sir Isaac Walton suggests.

For college students, I’d suggest the idea of a “disorientation week“–a week where you unplug from all of your electronics.

For others, I’d suggest unlearning your daily routine and use it as an opportunity to find some time to “study to be quite.”

If you’re wondering what to do with this quiet time start by pondering this question: How can I change myself.
