Under all speech that is good for anything there lies a silence that is better. Silence is deep as Eternity speech is shallow as Time.
Silence is deep as Eternity speech is shallow as Time.
Speech is human, silence is divine, yet also brutish and dead therefore we must learn both arts.
Silence is the element in which great things fashion themselves together.
As the Swiss inscription says: Sprechen ist silbern, Schweigen ist golden, - Speech is silver, Silence is golden; or, as I might rather express it, Speech is of Time, Silence is of Eternity
Silence is more eloquent than words
Silence is as deep as eternity; speech, shallow as time.
Silence is as deep as eternity, speech a shallow as time.
When the oak is felled the whole forest echoes with it fall, but a hundred acorns are sown in silence by an unnoticed breeze.
