Silence and the Voice of God

In order to hear the voice of God, one has to have silence in one’s soul and to keep silence; not a gloomy silence, but an interior silence, that is to say recollection in God.

Oh what irreparable damage is done by the breach of silence.We cause a lot of harm to our neighbor, but even more to our own selves.

One can speak a great deal without breaking silence and, on the contrary, one can speak little and keep breaking the silence.
