being too vain and distracted for silence:
seeking every one after his own elevation,
and dodging his emptiness."
—T. S. Eliot

It is the sound of a wonderful, deep silence
that means you've hit them where they live."

There is always something to see, something to hear.
In fact, try as we may to make a silence, we cannot."

When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence."
