Silence Quotes

My meditation-silence Expedites My God-Peace-Home return journey.

Sri Chinmoy

Meditation is silence. Silence is God In His Infinity's Smile

Sri Chinmoy

Meditation speaks. It speaks in silence. It reveals. It reveals to the aspirant that matter and spirit are one, quantity and quality are one, the immanent and the transcendent are one. It reveals that life can never be the mere existence of seventy or eighty years between birth and death, but is, rather, Eternity itself

Sri Chinmoy

Marianne Moore

I will tell you what I will do and what I will not do. I will not serve that in which I no longer believe, whether it call itself my home, my fatherland, or my church: and I will try to express myself in some mode of life or art as freely as I can and as wholly as I can, using for my defense the only arms I allow myself to use --silence, exile and cunning.
