John Climacus: "peacefulness even in the middle of a raging storm"

John Climacus, 579-649

This is from the blog Dover Beach:
“The first stage of this tranquility consists in silencing the lips when the heart is excited. The second, in silencing the mind when the soul is still excited. The goal is a perfect peacefulness even in the middle of the raging storm.”
  --John Climacus
