Quote of the Week: John Greenleaf Whittier

Drop Thy still dews of quietness,
Till all our strivings cease;
Take from our souls the strain and stress,
And let our ordered lives confess
The beauty of Thy peace.

- John Greenleaf Whittier, American Quaker poet of the 19th century, from his poem "The Brewing of Soma," later adapted by Garrett Horder into the hymn "Dear Lord and Father of Mankind."
