Silence Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Silence

1.
A good word is an easy obligation; but not to speak ill, requires only our silence, which costs nothing.
John Tillotson

2.
Silence is the ultimate weapon of power.
Gaulle, Charles De

3.
Well-timed silence hath more eloquence than speech.
Martin Fraquhar Tupper

4.
If you keep your mouth shut you will never put your foot in it.
O'Malley, Austin

5.
I have been breaking silence these twenty-three years and have hardly made a rent in it.
Thoreau, Henry David

6.
Oppression can only survive through silence.
Carmen de Monteflores

7.
He who does not know how to be silent will not know how to speak.
Ausonius

8.
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.
Abraham Lincoln

9.
Speech is often barren; but silence also does not necessarily brood over a full nest. Your still fowl, blinking at you without remark, may all the while be sitting on one addled egg; and when it takes to cackling will have nothing to announce but that addled delusion.
Eliot, George

10.
A silent mouth is melodious.
Proverb, Irish

11.
Silence is the great teacher, and to learn its lessons you must pay attention to it. There is no substitute for the creative inspiration, knowledge, and stability that come from knowing how to contact your core of inner silence. The great Sufi poet Rumi wrote, Only let the moving waters calm down, and the sun and moon will be reflected on the surface of your being.
Chopra, Deepak

12.
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

13.
Sticks and stones are hard on bones aimed with angry art. Words can sting like anything but silence breaks the heart.
Mcginley, Phyllis

14.
The greatest admiration gives rise not to words, but to silence.
Musonnius

15.
Silence propagates itself, and the longer talk has been suspended, the more difficult it is to find anything to say.
Samuel Johnson

16.
True silence is the rest of the mind; it is to the spirit what sleep is to the body, nourishment and refreshment.
William Penn

17.
A man's silence is wonderful to listen to.
Thomas Hardy

18.
Touch not the flute when drums are sounding around; when fools have the word, the wise will be silent.
Herder, Johann Gottfried Von

19.
I went down with the ship but I kept my mouth shut so I didn't drown like the rest of them.

20.
The rest is silence.
William Shakespeare

21.
The Pause; that impressive silence, that eloquent silence, that geometrically progressive silence which often achieves a desired effect where no combination of words, however so felicitous, could accomplish it.
Twain, Mark

22.
I am better able to retract what I did not say than what I did.
Gabirol, Ibn

23.
Learn taciturnity and let that be your motto!
Burns, Robert

24.
Well-timed silence is the most commanding expression.
Helprin, Mark

25.
Silence is more musical than any song.
Christina Rossetti

26.
Silence is golden when you can't think of a good answer.
Muhammad Ali

27.
Let us be silent that we may hear the whispers of the gods.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

28.
There's nothing wrong with having nothing to say -- unless you insist on saying it.

29.
When thou art quiet and silent, then art thou as God was before nature and creature; thou art that which God then wats; thou art that whereof he made thy nature and creature: Then thou hearest and seest even with that wherewith God himself saw and heard in thee, before every thine own willing or thine own seeing began.
Boehme, Jacob

30.
With silence favor me. (Favete Linguis)
Horace

31.
The silent dog is the first to bite.
Proverb

32.
Those that are silent profess consent.

33.
X is work. Y is play. Z is keep your mouth shut.
Dickson, R A

34.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent.
Wittgenstein, Ludwig

35.
That man's silence is wonderful to listen to.
Hardy, Thomas

36.
Keep your mouth closed until your mind is in gear.

37.
Silence is the sanctuary of the prudent, it conceals not only secrets but also imperfections.
Zacharia

38.
What she doesn't say is just as important as what she does say -- but there's so much more of it. I think from now on I'm going to stick to what she actually does say because I don't have that kind of time.
Katz, Jonathan

39.
I shall state silences more competently than ever a better man spangled the butterflies of vertigo.
Beckett, Samuel

40.
A fair request should be followed by the deed in silence.
Dante Alighieri

41.
Silence is foolish if we are wise, but wise if we are foolish.
Colton, Charles Caleb

42.
Silence may be golden, but can you think of a better way to entertain someone than to listen to him?
Young, Brigham

43.
Silence is the true friend that never betrays.
Confucius

The silent influence of books, is a mighty power in the world; and there is a joy in reading them known only to those who read them with desire and enthusiasm. Silent, passive, and noiseless though they be, they yet set in action countless multitudes, and change the order of nations.
Giles, Henry

49.
Silence at the proper season is wisdom, and better than any speech.
Plutarch

50.
Soon silence will have passed into legend. Man has turned his back on silence. Day after day he invents machines and devices that increase noise and distract humanity from the essence of life, contemplation, meditation. Tooting, howling, screeching, booming, crashing, whistling, grinding, and trilling bolster his ego. His anxiety subsides. His inhuman void spreads on like a gray vegetation.
Arp, Jean
