Minds So Like Still Water

In the final pages of Lovingkindness by Sharon Salzberg (Chapter 11, "Living Our Love"), a quote from William Butler Yeats:

We can make our minds so like still water that beings gather about us that they may see, it may be, their own images, and so live for a moment with a clearer, perhaps even with a fiercer life because of our quiet.

... from the 1902 essay "Earth, Fire and Water" in The Celtic Twilight.
