Only in One's Soul

The Mother Superior opened the parlor door, but as she was going out she hesitated.  Once more she gave Kitty a long, searching, and sagacious look.  Then she laid her hand gently on her arm.
   "You know, my dear child, that one cannot find peace in work or in pleasure, in the world or in a convent, but only in one's soul."

~W. Somerset Maugham, The Painted Veil

Have you seen the movie?  It's one of my favorites.  I'm reading the book now and enjoying it as well.
