I drink silence like champagne.
I listen to it as if it were an aria.
It is my most prized possession.
I wake up early and try to catch it before it is popped by the cacophony of my children.
At night I wake and listen to it settle like a blanket around our house.
I need silence to figure out my thoughts. I need silence to compose my words. I need silence to remain sane.
If I don’t get a bit every day I get
Here are a few of my favorite silence quotes:
Silence is the true friend that never betrays. Confucius
Silence is one of the great arts of conversation. Cicero
Never miss a good chance to shut up. Will Rogers
