“You can listen to silence Reuven. I’ve begun to realize that you can listen to silence and learn from it. It has a quality and a dimension all its own. It talks to me sometimes. I feel myself alive in it.”
Chaim Potok from The Chosen.

Silence is personal, it can carry alot of weight, or none at all. I've heard of God going out of his way to bother the scholars and saints, that sounds rather personal too.

Snow is cold, rain is wet, chills my soul right to the marrow.    -Carole King
