Friday Philosophy In Whispers…

When you want to write a blog post on silence (oxymoronic, I know) it is hard to come up with a “catchy” title. 🙂 I’ve been thinking about peace and quiet lately – perhaps because my children are on their Spring Holiday – and wanted to share some quotable quotes on the topic of silence. Not silence in an ominous sense, or a “bite your tongue” kind of way, just blissful silence. Maybe the Law of Attraction will oblige me on this one!

“Silence is a source of great strength.” ~ Lao Tzu

“Silence is a true friend who never betrays.” ~ Confucius

“Silence is the sleep that nourishes wisdom.” ~ Francis Bacon

“…I need the sunshine and the paving stones of the streets without companions, without conversation, face to face with myself, with only the music of my heart for company.” ~ Henry Miller

“In silence there is eloquence. Stop weaving and see how the pattern improves.” ~ Rumi

Friday blessings to you all… Never give up!
