On Silence by Ralph Waldo Emerson

What a strange power there is in silence!
How many resolutions are formed, how many sublime conquests effected, during that pause when the lips are closed, and the soul secretly feels the eye
of her Maker upon her!
They are the strong ones who know how to keep silence when it is a pain and a grief unto them, and who give time to their own souls to wax strong against temptation.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
