The Quiet Space

For, as I have said, the Christian has a deep, silent, hidden peace, which the world sees not,—like some well in a retired and shady place, difficult of access. He is the greater part of his time by himself and when he is in solitude, that is his real state. What he is when left to himself and to his God, that is his true life.

John Henry Newman, Plain and Parochial Sermons, Volume V, Sermon 5
