It’s a difficult competition against silence, because silence is a perfect language, the only language which says with no words.
Less is always more. The best language is silence. We live in a time of a terrible inflation of words, and it is worse than the inflation of money.
(Eduardo Galeano said)
Let thy speech be better than silence, or be silent.
(Dionysius Of Halicarnassus said)
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
(Aldous Huxley said)
Silence may mean acceptance or the continuation of resistance by other means.
