Yet another installment of... Of Being Quiet

"Quietude" is an admirable word. But one wonders to whom, or to what, it can be applied without hesitation. It would be important to detect this quietude. Even if it turned out to be difficult to learn a lesson from it.

- Pierre-Albert Jourdan

What assails you is never more than the irritated specter of the plenitude with which you did not manage to come to terms.

- Ibid.
