A Quote by Charles Alexander Eastman on character, control, courage, dignity, endurance, mystery, patience, self-control, and silence

If you ask him: "What is silence?" he will answer, "It is the Great Mystery! The holy silence is His voice!" If you ask: "What are the fruits of silence?" he will say: "They are self-control, true courage or endurance, patience, dignity, and reverence. Silence is the cornerstone of character."

Charles Alexander Eastman (1858 - 1939)
