“Sometimes you want things to change so badly, you can’t even stand to be in the same room with the way things actually are.”
Ali Benjamin, The Thing About Jellyfish

“If people were silent, they could hear the noise of their own lives better. If people were silent, it would make what they did say, whenever they chose to say it, more important. If people were silent, they could read one another's signals, the way underwater creatures flash lights at one another, or turn their skin different colors.”
Ali Benjamin, The Thing About Jellyfish

“It's peculiar how no-words can be better than words. Silence can say more than noise, in the same way that a person's absence can occupy even more space than their presence did.”
Ali Benjamin, The Thing About Jellyfish
