The Sound of Silence

“A painter paints pictures on canvas. But musicians paint their pictures on silence.” ~Leopold Stokowski

“Talking is like playing on the harp; there is as much in laying the hands on the strings to stop their vibration as in twanging them to bring out their music.” ~Oliver Wendell Holmes

“The deepest feeling always shows itself in silence; not in silence, but restraint.” ~ Marianne Moore
