The Art Of Slowing Down

By Patience Randle

“Let’s face it, in this day in age, it is EXTREMELY hard to slow down. With social media, Netflix, and notifications clogging up our minds (and timelines), most days it feels nearly impossible to sit in silence without checking our phones.”

Patience Randle, founder of the page ‘Ink & Fable’ shares with us her favourite quotes surrounding the themes ‘less is more’ and ‘the art of slowing down’ taken from the book ‘Daily Rituals’ by Mason Currey, which explores the mantras of famous writers and artists.

 

 

 

 

“Time is short,

 

my strength is limited,

 

the office is a horror,

 

the apartment is noisy,

 

and if a pleasant, straightforward life

 

is not possible then one must try to wriggle

 

through by subtle manoeuvers.” –

 

Franz Kafka

 

 

 

 

Rise early • Ernest Hemingway

“When I am working on a book or a story I write every morning as soon after first light as possible. There is no one to disturb you and it is cool or cold and you come to your work and warm as you write.” -Ernest Hemmingway

Coffee in the morning • Beethoven

It’s OK to say no sometimes • Toni Morrison

“I avoid social life normally associated with publishing. I don’t go to the cocktail parties, I don’t give or go to dinner parties. I need that time in the evening because I can do a tremendous amount of work then. I can concentrate.” -Toni Morrison
