Why so silent?
"'We do not know each other yet,' wrote to me one whom I hold dear above all others, 'we have not yet dared to be silent together.'"
from his essay "Silence," at p. 14 of Treasure of the Humble, herein, an 1897 edition translated by Alfred Sutro
(thanks to this piece for reminding us of the essay, which TiR noted but restrained itself from blogging about, five years ago, back when we were a mere wee sapling of a student in learning the crucial art of how, when & why to just shut up already)
