There are times when silence has the loudest voice.
Silence is sometimes the severest criticism.
Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it's all over.
Silence is the unbearable repartee.
Silences make the real conversations between friends. Not the saying but the never needing to say is what counts.
--Margaret Lee Runbeck
Do not speak unless you can improve the silence.
Silence is consent.
Silence is also speech.
Silence is sometimes the answer.
Silence seldom doth harm.
Silence is a source of great strength.
The unspoken word never does harm.
Music and silence combine strongly because music is done with silence, and silence is full of music.
There is a time of speaking and a time of being still.
Silence is the true friend that never betrays.
I have learned silence from the talkative, tolerance from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet strangely, I am ungrateful to these teachers.
Silence, along with modesty, is a great aid to conversation.
Saying nothing...sometimes says the most.
A man of few words will not really be thoughtless in his speech, he will measure every word.
--M. K. Gandhi
Silence is the element in which great things fashion themselves.
Let us be silent, that we may hear the whispers of the gods.
--Ralph Waldo Emerson
