Impossible Silences

Key takeaways

  • “To give everyone a loud speaker is to assure that no on can be heard”
  • With social media, everyone’s voice can be heard. But who is listening?
  • “It is not so much the other man’s words as his silences which we have to learn in order to understand him”
  • Many profound experiences puts us at a loss for words, so in those situations we “exist” by just being present and not speaking. But if speech is the only medium I might reach for explanations and solutions too early.
