“Silence is more musical than any song.”
– Christina Rossetti
I had selected this quote first, but I liked the one by Eliot better. Now I just realized that I used it before! So here is my original pick.
“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.”
– Charles W. Eliot; The Happy Life, 1896
