Without silence words lose their meaning.

And I scream as loud as anyone, but when asked to make a point, I tend to whisper.

Talking to yourself -- that's actually more like listening than speaking.

Share silence across static-filled phone lines, across oceans. Anything.

"Somewhere we know that without silence words lose their meaning, that without listening speaking no longer heals, that without distance closeness cannot cure."
--Henri Nouwen
