“Silence is something that comes from your heart, not from the outside.  Silence doesn’t mean not talking and not doing things; it means that you are not disturbed inside.  If you’re truly silent, then no matter what situation you find yourself in, you can enjoy the silence.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh

“The quieter you become, the more you can hear.”  ~ Ram Dass
