Hem it with Quietness, a repost

His thoughts said, What if I have not time to gather my portion?

His Father said, Hast thou only one minute? Hem it with quietness. Do not spend it thinking how little time thou hast. I can give thee much in one minute.

Then the son remembered the Jewish tradition about the manna and the dew. The manna fell on the dew, they said, then more dew fell on the manna so that it was found between two layers of dew. And he thought of the quietness of the dew and of how far it was removed from bustle of any kind. And he understood the word that his Father had spoken to him.
