that a calm is not desirable in any situation in life....
Man was made for action and for bustle too, I believe."

Abigail Adams was one of the best first ladies we have had! She endured, as her husband, and made our country better for it. Abigail Adams Rocked!

    If there is no hustle and bustle, a body and mind will atrophy. So the majority of our life is made for doing, creating, thinking, building, and moving in general. Energy begets energy! The calm is for those moments to soothe the soul and be thankful.
