No Outward Clamor

Saint Francis, withdrawn within himself and walking in the broadness of his heart, had prepared within himself a dwelling fit for God, and therefore the outward clamor did not catch his ears, nor could any sound drive out or interrupt the great business he had at hand. The apostolic authority was strong in him, and he therefore refused entirely to offer flattery to kings and princes.

Saint Francis of Assisi
Celano, First Life
Chapter XVI
