Let us be silent, that we may hear the whispers of the gods.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Tears are the silent language of grief.
Ten people who speak make more noise than ten thousand who are silent.
Better remain silent, better not even think, if you are not prepared to act.
Use those talents you have. You will make it. You will give joy to the world. Take this tip from nature: The woods would be a very silent place if no birds sang except those who sang best.
I always loved silent movies. I was not a specialist, but I loved them. And when I started directing, I became really fascinated by the format - how it works, the device of the silent movie. It's not the same form of expression as a talkie. The lack of sounds makes you participate in the storytelling.
This is a universal, unique movie, it has potential to cross barriers. But we never thought about that on set, when we were doing the film. We knew that in making a silent movie, we were doing something a little bit under the wire, a bit interdit. It's a pastiche, but for the French taste, you would have thought.
100 years ago, movies were black-and-white, silent, and 16 frames a second. So 100 years from now, what are they going to be?
When we tell little white lies, we become progressively color-blind. It is better to remain silent than to mislead.
James E. Faust
The silent killer of all great men and women of achievement - particularly men, I don't know why, maybe it's the testosterone - I think it's narcissism. Even more than hubris. And for women, too. Narcissism is the killer.
Quietness is the beginning of virtue. To be silent is to be beautiful. Stars do not make a noise.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent.
The deeper the blue becomes, the more strongly it calls man towards the infinite, awakening in him a desire for the pure and, finally, for the supernatural... The brighter it becomes, the more it loses its sound, until it turns into silent stillness and becomes white.
And soon, too soon, we part with pain, To sail o'er silent seas again.
Silent pictures show us how we lived and what our attitudes were. And as an art form, they can be wonderfully entertaining and often inspirational.
The Obama representatives like Robert Gibbs attack people viciously, but people like me will not be silent and will answer them back.
I came to poetry through the urgent need to denounce injustice, exploitation, humiliation. I know that's not enough to change the world. But to remain silent would have been a kind of intolerable complicity.
Tahar Ben Jelloun
I never have tantrums. If anything makes me mad, I'm silent. If I'm not talking, leave me alone.
Even Helen Keller, who was born blind and deaf, could see God. No doubt, in her silent darkness, every fragrant flower, every ray of the warm sun, every taste that touched her tongue told her that there was a God who created all things. Jodie Foster shouldn't therefore be surprised that people are surprised that she's an atheist.
Everybody is a political person, whether you say something or you are silent. A political attitude is not whether you go to parliament; it's how you deal with your life, with your surroundings.
Deprived of the opportunity to judge one another by the cars we drive, New Yorkers, thrown together daily on mass transit, form silent opinions based on our choices of subway reading. Just by glimpsing the cover staring back at us, we can reach the pinnacle of carnal desire or the depths of hatred. Soul mate or mortal enemy.
I love all types of music. Jazz, classical, blues, rock, hip-hop. I often write scripts to instrumentals like a hip-hop artist. Music inspires me to write. It's either music playing or completely silent. Sometimes distant sound fuels you. In New York there's always a buzzing beneath you.
A dog barks when his master is attacked. I would be a coward if I saw that God's truth is attacked and yet would remain silent.
We must distinguish between speaking to deceive and being silent to be reserved.
If the audience doesn't like it, usually they're just silent. But they've never all walked out at once.
C. S. Lewis
Martin Luther King, Jr.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
