A Quote by Gaston Bachelard on happiness, memory, communion, soul, and silence

Happy is the man who knows or even the man who remembers those silent vigils where silence itself was the sign of the communion of souls!

Gaston Bachelard (1884 - 1962)

A Quote by Angeles Arrien on silence and listening

"I trust the mystery.  I trust what comes in silence and what comes in nature where there's no diversion.  I think the lack of stimulation allows us to hear and experience a deeper river that's constant, still, vibrant, and real.  And the process of deep listening with attention and intention catalyzes and mobilizes exactly what's needed at that time."

A Quote by John Cage on silence, life, hear, and see

There is no such thing as an empty space or an empty time. There is always something to see, something to hear. In fact, try as we may to make a silence, we cannot

A Quote by Sri Chinmoy on journey and silence

At the end of all the roads       
There is only a sound-life     
That does everything,     
And a silence-life     
That becomes everything.

A Quote by Raphie on co-generation, xy, culture wars, and silence

The culture wars of the Sixties have returned, but silently this time, and they are being played out in bohemian dive bars and on social software sites. Just call it Generation XY, a two in one proposition coupling all those Gen-exers trapped between idealism and despair, and all those socially conscious Gen Y types who came just a bit after us.

A Quote by Ken Kesey on truth, perception, and silence

I been silent so long now it's gonna roar out of me like floodwaters and you think the guy telling this is ranting and raving my God; you think this is too horrible to have really happened, this is too awful to be the truth! But please. It's still hard for me to have a clear mind thinking on it. But it's the truth even if it didn't happen.

Ken Kesey (1935 -)

A Quote by Ohiyesa, Charles Alexander Eastman on silence and lakota

"Lakota believe profoundly in silence--the sign of a perfect equilibrium.  Silence is the absolute poise or balance of body, mind, and spirit.  They who preserve their selfhood ever calm and unshaken by the storms of existence--not a leaf as it were, a stir in the trees; not a ripple upon the surface of a shining pool--this, in the mind of an unlettered sage, is the ideal attitude and conduct of life."
~Ohiyesha  (Charles Alexander Eastman)
