Amish Peace

The following quote was written by an Amish man called "Uncle Amos," who occasionally wrote for a publication called the Small Farmer's Journal. Though written with the Amish life in mind, I thought it would easily apply to those who admire the monastic lifestyle - those who are monk's at heart.

"If you admire our faith, strengthen yours. If you admire our sense of commitment, deepen yours. If you admire our community spirit, build your own. If you admire the simple life,cut back. If you admire deep character and enduring values, live them yourself. "

The above quote was taken from the Introduction in the book, Amish Peace: Simple Wisdom for a Complicated World.
