“The best answer to anger is silence.”

“Silence is the virtue of fools.”
 Francis Bacon

“Love is the voice under all silences, the hope which has no opposite in fear; the strength so strong mere force is feebleness: the truth more first than sun, more last than star...”
 E. E. Cummings

“He who does not understand your silence will probably not understand your words.”
 Elbert Hubbard

“Silence is one of the great arts of conversation.”
 Marcus Tullius Cicero



I find that first quote to be so true.

I like the first quote. Especially in a day of stress, all I want is peace

Dearest Claudia,
Hello, thank you SO MUCH for your thoughtful comment. Although I'm still feeling a bit groggy, I finally start facing pc and catching up visiting friends (^^;)

Yes, my favorite is the first one as well♡♡♡

Love you always from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

Sometimes silence is just right

Excellent. Good and true words and thoughts.

@Belle - true but not easy!
@Adam - yes, but sometimes we fight our urge to react!
@Miyako - you are so sweet! I hope today you feel better
@Inge - indeed
@Kathi - happy you enjoyed them!

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
