„This sound has its own silence; all living things are involved in this sound of silence. To be attentive is to hear this silence and move with it.“

—  Jiddu Krishnamurti Indian spiritual philosopher 1895 - 1986

Vol. II, p. 30
1980s, Letters to the Schools (1981, 1985)
Contexto: Attention involves seeing and hearing. We hear not only with our ears but also we are sensitive to the tones, the voice, to the implication of words, to hear without interference, to capture instantly the depth of a sound. Sound plays an extraordinary part in our lives: the sound of thunder, a flute playing in the distance, the unheard sound of the universe; the sound of silence, the sound of one’s own heart beating; the sound of a bird and the noise of a man walking on the pavement; the waterfall. The universe is filled with sound. This sound has its own silence; all living things are involved in this sound of silence. To be attentive is to hear this silence and move with it.

„In silence the heart raves. It utters words
Meaningless, that never had
A meaning.“

—  Robert Penn Warren American poet, novelist, and literary critic 1905 - 1989

"True Love"
Contexto: In silence the heart raves. It utters words
Meaningless, that never had
A meaning. I was ten, skinny, red-headed,
Freckled. In a big black Buick,
Driven by a big grown boy, with a necktie, she sat
In front of the drugstore, sipping something
Through a straw. There is nothing like
Beauty. It stops your heart. It
Thickens your blood. It stops your breath. It
Makes you feel dirty. You need a hot bath.
I leaned against a telephone pole, and watched.
I thought I would die if she saw me.

„Ah, what an age it is
When to speak of trees is almost a crime
For it is a kind of silence about injustice!“

—  Bertolt Brecht German poet, playwright, theatre director 1898 - 1956

A response to the Nazi book burnings, in "To Posterity" (1939) as translated by H. R. Hays (1947)
Contexto: Do not treat me in this fashion. Don't leave me out. Have I not
Always spoken the truth in my books? And now
You treat me like a liar! I order you:
Burn me!
Those who lead the country into the abyss
Call ruling too difficult
For ordinary men.
Ah, what an age it is
When to speak of trees is almost a crime
For it is a kind of silence about injustice!

„Silence may have an eloquence of its own, but only in the long run.“
