“If you are so busy with the noise of the world, with the noise of events, with the noise of things around you— your self, your work, your friends—even when it is extremely quiet, you can’t hear anything. Your powers of concentration are so diverted that you cannot concentrate on God.” — Mother Angelica


“If I were a doctor, and I were allowed to prescribe only one remedy for all the ills of the modern world, I would prescribe silence. For even if the word of God were proclaimed in the modern world, it would be choked to death with noise, it would not be heard, because there is no silence. Therefore, create silence.” — Søren Kierkegaard
