There are three reasons why I live in Scotland. First, I like silence, and you have to be a millionaire to buy silence in Italy. Second, I like cold weather. Third, in Italy I have too many relatives and know too many people, so I never get a quiet time.
Gian Carlo Menotti
At home, I love reaching out into that absolute silence, when you can hear the owl or the wind.
Silence is the unbearable repartee.
Silence is the last thing the world will ever hear from me.
If we had a keen vision of all that is ordinary in human life, it would be like hearing the grass grow or the squirrel's heart beat, and we should die of that roar which is the other side of silence.
