True silence is the rest of the mind; it is to the spirit what sleep is to the body, nourishment and refreshment. ~William Penn

Quote of the Day by William Penn: True Silence

http://www.selfhelpdaily.com/quote-of-the-day-by-william-penn-true-silence/

Silence is A Beautiful Thing….

True silence is the rest of the mind; it is to the spirit what sleep is to the body, nourishment and refreshment. ~William PennI read a quote about silence in a Nicholas Sparks book once. A character, who was enjoying a road trip with someone as they rode in silence, was wondering why so many people seem to think they have to “fill silence.” I agreed so wholeheartedly that I probably underlined the quote.

I’m a bona fide quote-underliner… which is why I don’t check out a lot of library books. It’d bankrupt me.

William Penn is, apparently, another strong appreciator of quietness.

The next time you feel you have the need to “fill” silence, ask yourself a very important question…. “Why?“
