    Silenceee

    Im very used to silence and i like it. Sadly i spend a lot of time alone and there was some time that i had 2 o 3 days without talking or hearing a word from another human. Noice bother me: shouts, high music or tv, go to a restaurant with a lot of noise. As the song say I prefer...

    Cousins were here. As much

    as I wanted the room for myself, the noise of sharing space with relatives turned out to be not as bad as I thought it would. Now that they're back to their homes, the silence of the room smells like memories.

    Every now and then I enjoy silence.

    I turn off my tv, and just lay there. Thinking, gathering my thoughts and the current events for that day..or yesterday.

    Just Me And My Heartbeat.

    When I have the means to get away, my favorite thing to do when I come home from a long day of being out of the house- Is to lay on my bed and stare at the ceiling fan. Since I was a child I would love to do this. Just lay there in the silence. For hours upon hours. Deep thoughts...

    There is a saying in my tongue.

    If word is silver, silence is gold.

    At times I enjoy being quiet

    and just not focusing on the bad stuff that's going on and aim more towards the good things that are going on, I like to go sometimes and sit in my closet with some nice chill ambient music and tune out this world for a min and mediate on what I wanna do next in my life it all...

    I'm not the anti-social type

    who squirrels away from distraction and involvement at all as interaction helps us to advance and invest in our own lives. But sometimes or even often, introversion and solace can be at least as rewarding for inner exploration, reasoning and relaxation in this chaotic web of...

    Silence is golden. When it's quiet I can

    literally hear myself think. Too much noise makes me feel confused!

    I listen to 130 middle school kids all day long,

    and then I've got two of my own. Sometimes I just need absolute silence. That's why I love my lunch break so much (on the days that I get one). My friend and I have this unwritten rule that we won't speak for the first fifteen minutes. It's our time to relax and just be...

    I have no need for friends to communicate with

    in a daily basis. I do not like talking on my phone nor do I like being in the company of people on a daily basis. I would say I am an extreme introvert I enjoy myself, my own company.

    "We sit silently and watch the world around us.

    This has taken a lifetime to learn. It seems only the old are able to sit next to one another and not say anything and still feel content. The young, brash and impatient, must always break the silence. It is a waste, for silence is pure. Silence is holy. It draws people together...

    I like silence. I hear enough noise at work.

    Silence helps and allows me to concentrate on pleasure and sleep

    Silence has the eternal presence.

    It allows one to delve into oneself deeply and get introduced to those parts of which he is unaware so far. Being introduced so, he is provided with an opportunity to attain self-knowledge through which he can change for the better. Go into silence as often as possible. Its...

    When things in my house,

    or in my life period get hectic .. I just go into one of my empty rooms & close the door, shut the blinds, sit on the floor and just block it all out. Either that or I get in my car, park somewhere far away from my house and I just think. It brings me a level of peace & serenity...

    Weird

    I love silence when I'm alone, but it's pretty awkward around other people. Once you find someone that you can enjoy silence with and also enjoy a conversation, you've found someone special.

    Stop for a moment. Put a hand on your heart

    and feel the beat. Now think. Where do you plan to go? Are you, at the moment, at that general direction?

    I'm sitting here outside at 4.

    30 am... It reminds me of waking up early while on holiday at the beach, with it's gentle wind blowing and the world has not yet woken up around me, I'm listening to the last remnants of night enjoying a cup of coffee in the silence. It's just lovely.

    Justification for being tired

    and letting yourself stay in it: Forget stressing your life away trying to "get somewhere". You'll never be fulfilled with your accomplishments because accomplishments don't provide inner peace.

    I think people talk too much,

    about pointless things that don't really have any importance. small talk is okay but sometimes it's nice just to sit in silence and just enjoy each other's presence.

    I believe the best time to enjoy silence is

    between 3am and 5am. I used to wake up to study during those hours. No noises, no construction noises ,no vehicle noises..All one hears is the sound of the breeze and tick tocking of the clock. Your mind is at peace and is also the best time to do meditation and breathing...

    Silence of the night.

    The world is just so loud

    and yet it's even louder in my head. I enjoy even a bit of silence because it's something I rarely have. Don't you feel it too? The noise is deafening but I'm afraid the worse kind of deafening is silence itself.

    I enjoy the systematic grunts

    and just lay in bed and rest thinking of only positive things, trying to gain a clear mind and get rid of all the clutter from that day's events.

    Silence -the Language Of Love

    The power of silence and the beauty of love can never be put into words. Love is a kingdom and silence is its language. Love doesn't need the pillar of words to stand strong, it dives in and out of the ocean of silence; profound and meaningful. Silence is like a melody that can...
