Silence quotes
Silence
Silence is the perfectos herald of joy. I were but little happy if I could say how much.

- Shakespeare, William
True penitence condemns to silence. What a man is ready to recall he would be willing to repeat.

- Bradley, Francis H.
The world is never quiet, even its silence eternally resounds with the same notes, in vibrations which escape our ears. As for those that we perceive, they carry sounds to us, occasionally a chord, never a melody.

- Camus, Albert
The voice of protest, of warning, of appeal is never more needed than when the clamor of fife and drum, echoed by the press and too often by the pulpit, is bidding all men fall in step and obey in silence the tyrannous word of command. Then, more than ever, it is the duty of the good citizen not to be silent.

- Norton, Charles Eliot
Much talking is the cause of danger. Silence is the means of avoiding misfortune. The talkative parrot is shut up in a cage. Other birds, without speech, fly freely about.

- Saskya Pandita
Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted, the indifference of those who should have known better, the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most, that has made it possible for evil to triumph.

- Selassie, Haile
He had occasional flashes of silence, that made his conversation perfectly delightful.

- Sydney Smith
No Voice; but oh! the silence sank like music on my heart.

- Samuel Taylor Coleridge
It takes more time and effort and delicacy to learn the silence of a people than to learn its sounds. Some people have a special gift for this. Perhaps this explains why some missionaries, notwithstanding their efforts, never come to speak properly, to communicate delicately through silences. Although they speak with the accent of natives they remain forever thousands of miles away. The learning of the grammar of silence is an art much more difficult to learn than the grammar of sounds.

- Illich, Ivan
Silence is the element in which great things fashion themselves.

- Carlyle, Thomas
In antiquity there was only silence. In the nineteenth century, with the invention of the machine, Noise was born. Today, Noise triumphs and reigns supreme over the sensibility of men.

- Russolo, Luigi
Music is the wine that fills the cup of silence.

- Robert Fripp
To let friendship die away by negligence and silence is certainly not wise. It is voluntarily to throw away one of the greatest comforts of the weary pilgrimage.

- Johnson, Samuel
A good word is an easy obligation; but not to speak ill, requires only our silence, which costs nothing.

- John Tillotson
Silence is more musical than any song.

- Christina Rossetti
True silence is the rest of the mind; it is to the spirit what sleep is to the body, nourishment and refreshment.

- William Penn
He had occasional flashes of silence that made his conversation perfectly delightful.

- Smith, Sydney
Your hearts know in silence the secrets of the days and the nights.

- Gibran, Kahlil
Touch not the flute when drums are sounding around; when fools have the word, the wise will be silent.

- Herder, Johann Gottfried Von
A wise old owl sat on an oak; The more he saw the less he spoke; The less he spoke the more he heard; Why aren't we like that wise old bird?

- Richards, Edward Hersey
