Silence is so under-rated.

1.  God’s poet is silence!  His song is unspoken
And yet so profound, and so loud, and so far,
That it thrills you and fills you in measures unbroken—
The unceasing song of the first morning star….
~Joaquin Miller, from “The True Poet,” In Classic Shades, And Other Poems, 1890 

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

3.   We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness.  God is the friend of silence.  See how nature – trees, flowers, grass – grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence…. We need silence to be able to touch souls.  ~Mother Teresa
