1. ‘I’ve begun to realize that you can listen to silence and learn from it. It has a quality and a dimension all its own.’ – Chaim Potok

2. ‘There is an ocean of silence between us…and I am drowning in it.’ – Ranata Suzuki

3. ‘Words can be twisted into any shape. Promises can be made to lull the heart and seduce the soul. In the final analysis, words mean nothing. They are labels we give things in an effort to wrap our puny little brains around their underlying natures, when ninety-nine percent of the time the totality of the reality is an entirely different beast. The wisest man is the silent one. Examine his actions. Judge him by them.’ – Karren Marie Moning

4. ‘Have you ever heard the wonderful silence just before the dawn? Or the quiet and calm just as a storm ends? Or perhaps you know the silence when you haven’t the answer to a question you’ve been asked, or the hush of a country road at night, or the expectant pause of a room full of people when someone is just about to speak, or, most beautiful of all, the moment after the door closes and you’re alone in the whole house? Each one is different, you know, and all very beautiful if you listen carefully.’ – Norton Juster

5. ‘The span in-between
does not make the day weary
but your silence does.’
Lynn Chen
