“I’ve begun to realize that you can listen to silence and learn from it. It has a quality and a dimension all its own.”  – Chaim Potok

“I thought it would be quieter here.” [Anna] hadn’t meant to say anything, but the noise startled her.
“The wind in the trees,” Bran said. “And there are some birds that stay year-round. Sometimes when the wind is still and the cold is upon us, the quiet is so deep you can feel it in your bones.”  – Patricia Briggs

“People dread silence because it is transparent; like clear water, which reveals every obstacle—the used, the dead, the drowned, silence reveals the cast-off words and thoughts dropped in to obscure its clear stream. And when people stare too close to silence they sometimes face their own reflections, their magnified shadows in the depths, and that frightens them. I know; I know.”  – Janet Frame
