Silence quotes
Silence
Silence is a text easy to misread.

- A. A. Attanasio
The mark of solitude is silence, as speech is the mark of community. Silence and speech have the same inner correspondence and difference as do solitude and community. One does not exist without the other. Right speech comes out of silence, and right silence comes out of speech.

- Bonhoeffer, Dietrich
Silence at the proper season is wisdom, and better than any speech.

- Plutarch
Silence is as full of potential wisdom and wit as the unshown marble of great sculpture. The silent bear no witness against themselves.

- Huxley, Aldous
The silent dog is the first to bite.

- Proverb
Silence is one of the great arts of conversation, as allowed by Cicero himself, who says,'there is not only an art, but an eloquence in it.'A well bred woman may easily and effectually promote the most useful and elegant conversation without speaking a word. The modes of speech are scarcely more variable than the modes of silence.

- Tom Blair
Silence is the most perfect expression of scorn.

- George Bernard Shaw
A warrior of light knows that he will hear an order in the silence of his heart that will guide him.

- Paulo Coelho
You are a slave to what you do say, a master of what you don't say.

The whisper of a pretty girl can be heard further than the roar of a lion.

- Proverb, Arabian
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
It is better to sit alone than in company with the bad; and it is, better still to sit with the good than alone. It is better to speak to a seeker of knowledge than to remain silent; but silence is better than idle words.

- Prophet Mohammed
Keep your mouth closed until your mind is in gear.

Your hearts know in silence the secrets of the days and the nights.

- Gibran, Kahlil
Now the sirens have a still more fatal weapon than their song, namely their silence... someone might have escaped from their singing; but from their silence, certainly never.

- Franz Kafka
Speech is the small change of silence.

- Meredith, George
Silence is one of the hardest arguments to refute.

- Josh Billings
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
Learn taciturnity and let that be your motto!

- Burns, Robert
I have been breaking silence these twenty-three years and have hardly made a rent in it.

- Thoreau, Henry David
