William S. Burroughs

But dolphins, which fill the oceans with blipping and chirping, and whales, which mew and caw in ultramarine jazz - a true rhapsody in blue - are hunted to the edge of silence.
True silence is the rest of the mind, and is to the spirit what sleep is to the body, nourishment and refreshment.
