Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I'll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about.
No person is your friend who demands your silence, or denies your right to grow.
We sit silently and watch the world around us. This has taken a lifetime to learn. It seems only the old are able to sit next to one another and not say anything and still feel content. The young, brash and impatient, must always break the silence. It is a waste, for silence is pure. Silence is holy. It draws people together because only those who are comfortable with each other can sit without speaking. This is the great paradox.
Your silence will not protect you.
I decided it is better to scream. Silence is the real crime against humanity.
Never miss a good chance to shut up.
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.
Silence is so freaking loud
Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content.
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
How could the drops of water know themselves to be a river? Yet the river flows on.
Silence is as full of potential wisdom and wit as the unhewn marble of great sculpture.
The silent dog is the first to bite.
We need a reason to speak, but none to keep silent.
Silence is the unbearable repartee.
That man's silence is wonderful to listen to.
I believe in the discipline of silence and could talk for hours about it.
He has the gift of quiet.
I'm exhausted from not talking.
The cruellest lies are often told in silence.
