Silence

A Quote by Archibald MacLeish on brothers, earth, eternity, and silence

To see the earth as we now see it, small and beautiful in that eternal silence where it floats, is to see ourselves as riders on the earth together, brothers on that bright loveliness in the unending night - brothers who see now they are truly brothers.

Archibald MacLeish (1892 - 1982)
