Be a lover of silence


I really cannot collect too many quotations on the subject of silence. I found this one today and I think the juxtaposition of an auditory reference with a visual one is quite wonderful:

If you love truth, be a lover of silence. Silence, like the sunlight, will illuminate you in God.

-- St. Isaac (7th Century Hermit Monk)


  1. Beautiful, Ellie, thank you. It is good to see someone else so enraptured by silence - much underrated in our churches a times!
