“Silence reveals itself in a thousand inexpressible forms, here are just 6 examples:
1. in the quiet of dawn,
2. in the noiseless aspiration of trees towards the sky,
3. in the stealthy descent of night,
4. in the silent changing of the seasons,
5. in the falling moonlight, trickling down into the night like a rain of silence,
6. but above all in the silence of the inward soul.”
