Huisvlijt verwees iemand naar onderstaand citaat, en dat geeft prachtig het belang van 'niets doen' weer. If, as Herod, we fill our lives with things, and again with things, if we consider ourselves so unimportant that we must fill every moment of our lives with action, when will we have time to make the long, slow journey across the desert, as did the Magi? Or sit and watch the stars, as did the Shepherds? Or brood over the coming of the child, as did Mary? For each ... of us, there is a desert to travel, a star to discover, and a being within ourselves to bring to life. (Rhoda E. McCulloch) Door even 'niets te doen' kom je tot jezelf. En zo doe je eigenlijk toch iets!
