Learning to "sit down quietly"

Here's part of why meditation contributes to well being. Most of us don't really know how to "sit down quietly" for very long, at least, and meditation teaches us just that:

Happiness is a butterfly which, when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.
- Nathaniel Hawthorne
