Silence is always beautiful, and a silent person is always more beautiful than one who talks.
- Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Adolescent (via 90377)
In the dark I rest,
unready for the light which dawns
day after day,
eager to be shared.
Black silk, shelter me.
more of the night before I open
eyes and heart
to illumination. I must still
grow in the dark like a root
not ready, not ready at all.
- Denise Levertov (via observando)
