Posts Tagged ‘Silence’

Our spirit has an instinct for silence.
  Every soul innately yearns for stillness,
  for a space, a garden where we can till, sow, reap, and rest,
  and by doing so come to a deeper sense of self and our place in the universe.
  Silence is not an absence but a presence.
  Not an emptiness but repletion.
  A filling up.
  —  Anne D. LeClaire

Silence

My father used to say,
“Superior people never make long visits,
have to be shown Longfellow’s grave
or the glass flowers at Harvard.
Self-reliant like the cat  —
that takes its prey to privacy,
the mouse’s limp tail hanging like a shoelace from its mouth  —
they sometimes enjoy solitude,
and can be robbed of speech
by speech which has delighted them.
The deepest feeling always shows itself in silence;
not in silence, but restraint.”
Nor was he insincere in saying, “Make my house your inn.”
Inns are not residences.
