Let the veil of silence fall presently over what happened afterwards. Silence, too, can speak out.

Silence and solitude are more distracting to me than chatter and commotion.
It now becomes clear why the Bush Administration has been vigorously opposing congressional hearings. The Bush Administration has been engaged in a conspiracy of silence.
When you're comfortable with someone you love, the silence is the best. And, that's how me and J. are. When we're in a room together, we don't have to say anything. It's for real.
The thing to keep in mind is that we're still in the very early days when it comes to the search for extraterrestrial intelligence.

Hazrat Inayat Khan
Strength is born in the deep silence of long-suffering hearts; not amid joy.

The mere existence of 'Buffy' proves the declinists wrong about one thing: Hollywood commercialism can produce great art. Complex and evolving characters. Playful language.
