|Wisdom ripens into Silence as she grows more truly wise,|
And she wears a mellow sadness in her heart and in her eyes;

Is that life is more than language, and that thought is more than speech.
Samuel Miller Hageman.Silence.
|Wisdom is the abstract of the past, but beauty is the promise of the future.|
