Be silent or let thy words be worth more than silence.
But for me the sweetest contact with God has no form. I close my eyes, look within, and enter a deep soft silence. The infinity of God's creation embraces me.
In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
It is tact that is golden, not silence.
Let silence be the art you practice.
Let silence take you to the core of life.
Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none; be able for thine enemy rather in power than use; and keep thy friend under thine own life's key; be checked for silence, but never taxed for speech
Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself.
Not only will we have to repent for the sins of bad people; but we also will have to repent for the appalling silence of good people.
Silence, I discover, is something you can actually hear.
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.
