Quiet and Sayings About It

Does silence and quiet express something? They surely do and sometimes they do it best.
"St. John of the Cross points out that the divine music can best be heard in solitude and silence. The sonorous music is not a physical sound that vibrates the eardrum but something transcending the senses. Physical solitude and silence remove the distracting noises that prevent us from hearing on deeper levels."
― Charles Cummings
Being quiet can be a medicine to a sad soul to come out of it, though many of us find it's easy to express or share one's feeling with the dear and near ones. What will you do if there is no one to speak your heart out? Won't you try to solve the issue yourself by finding its solution? Yes, you will.
A quiet person can deal the things a way better than the one unstable with thoughts. Here are few quotes and saying focusing on positivity of being quiet in the life.
