I DO alphabetize my spices AND hang my clothes by color (and roughly in order by ROYGBIV). I like things orderly, so I don't have to remember anything. Life arranged for cruise control.
Perhaps this is why I love this quote by St. Augustine:
Peace is not the absence of activity, but the tranquility of order.
Seriously, in other words, passivity is not peace. Keeping your spiritual life in order, with humility and love, will give you peace.
This quote came back to me when I read "The 100 Greatest Catholic Quotes of All Time," an excellent post by Enbrethiliel. Golden words there, read and think of your own favorites.
