Natsuki Takaya
If everything you say gets laughed at...

then you become afraid of everyone...

and are no longer able to speak...

even knowing all
that does is bother everyone...

Your heart...

....shuts down...

And your words die....

Natsuki Takaya, Fruits Basket, Vol. 5

Criss Jami
“There is a master way with words which is not learned but is instead developed: a deaf man develops exceptional vision, a blind man exceptional hearing, a silent man, when given a piece of paper...”
Criss Jami, Venus in Arms

Keary Taylor
“Not being able to talk sucks. There's no doubt about that. There's a lot of times when I almost feel like I'm trapped inside of myself. Like if I don't talk or yell or scream or laugh I'm going to explode. A lot of the time it almost feels like I'm suffocating.”
Keary Taylor, What I Didn't Say

François Mauriac
“The effort of explaining, even of expressing himself, had become, with the years, more and more terrifying to him. Whether from laziness or from inability to find the right words, he had developed almost a passion for silence.”
François Mauriac, Thérèse

Khaled Hosseini
“It would be erroneous to say Sohrab was quiet. Quiet is peace. Tranquility. Quiet is turning down the volume knob on life.

Silence is pushing the off button. Shutting it down. All of it.

Sohrab's silence wasn't the self imposed silence of those with convictions, of protesters who seek to speak their cause by not speaking at all. It was the silence of one who has taken cover in a dark place, curled up all the edges and tucked them under.”
Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner

Keary Taylor
“I wanted to scream as I stood there, my toes hanging over the edge of the dock. I wanted to let a gut-wrenching howl rip from my disfigured throat toward those clouded skies. I wanted to say every swear word my mother had ever taught me not to say.
I would have settled for a cut-off whimper, just as long as some kind of sound came from my lips.”
Keary Taylor, What I Didn't Say

Keary Taylor
“We didn't say or write anything for a long time. Normally silence like that was uncomfortable and awkward. Like you needed to say something to fill the empty space in the air. But it didn't feel like that with Samantha. Maybe it was because I couldn't say anything and fill the quiet, but I thought it was more about two people just being with each other, enjoying the slowdown and the rare sunshine.”
Keary Taylor, What I Didn't Say

Michael Bassey Johnson
“Keep your problems to yourself, if its too much for you, kill it slowly till it disappears from your life.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

“Make no mistake about it.
We are born blind, deaf, and mute.
It is neither these eyes that give us sight,
nor these ears that give us sound.
It is not even these lips that give us voice.

It is only love.
Love makes us seek beauty and truth.
Love yearns to connect. To experience.
To understand.

So close your eyes at once.
Don’t utter a word.
Perk up your ears and listen
to that silent sound inside you
where all this is found.”
Kamand Kojouri

Simona Panova
“The unknown grayish mystifying forest was benumbed into frost-covered cold, and the tremendous pines towering above the dark marshy soil resembled a gathering of severe mute brothers from a forbidden ancient order worshiping forgotten gods no one had ever heard of outside of the world of secret occult visions.”
Simona Panova, Nightmarish Sacrifice

George Orwell
“Beasts of England had been abolished. From now onwards it was forbidden to sing it.”
George Orwell, Animal Farm

“One of the greatest lessons we can learn in life is how to keep mute when the boiling ring of anger is dropped within us”
Ikechukwu Izuakor

Keary Taylor
“I've always thought it would be nice to have the house to myself for a while. This place gets so loud all theme and there are always so many people in it. But I guess I'm grateful for all the noise and chaos. I don't know if I want to be alone in the quiet with my thoughts these days.”
Keary Taylor, What I Didn't Say

Michael Bassey Johnson
“If you really want to be different, you'd better keep quiet and be a good person on the inside.”
Michael Bassey Johnson, Master of Maxims

Laura Whitcomb
“It was all real and blazing with detail.
But I was shadow, light as mist, mute as the wallpaper.”
Laura Whitcomb, A Certain Slant of Light

Michael Bassey Johnson
“Don't assume you are more creative or better than anyone, because some people with better stuffs are just pretending to be dumb for a while.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

Munia Khan
“To me sometimes a mute sky is more expressive than the roaring sea”
Munia Khan

Andrew Vachss
“Max can’t hear or speak, but he communicates okay. He wasn’t programmed for fear—whoever rolled the genetic dice left that out too. If Mama asked Max to deliver a package to the Devil, Max would go straight to Hell. Unlike others of my acquaintance who had made that particular trip, I had complete confidence that Max would come back. Max the Silent is one tough boy. In fact, he’s so infamous that one time over in night court when he was being arraigned for attempted murder, nobody even laughed when the judge told him that he had the right to remain silent. They all knew that Max never attempted to murder anyone.”
Andrew Vachss, Flood

“Tell me where the swans go in the winter
I need to know if the mute ones can sing.

Tell me why stars fall from the sky
I need to know if it is luck they bring.

Tell me why feathers land near you
I need to know if you've injured your wing.

Now, tell me where you end, my angel
For I no longer know where I begin.”
Kamand Kojouri

“I can't speak anymore, I open my mouth but nothing comes out. So many things to say. I wonder if you really want to hear it anyway?

Instead, I leave my heavy mind exploding with unfinished thoughts.”
Tina J. Richardson, I didnt mean it that way

“In the Kingdom of the Blind, the Mute Cyclops is the Eunuch King.”
Khang Kijarro Nguyen

“The real power of silence is to keep silent. The real power of silence is in the works of silence!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
