Silence

“One gift has been given me and in such a degree that I can call it genius—it is the gift of conversation, of being able to talk with everyone. This happy gift was given to me in order to conceal the undoubted fact that I am the most silent man of my day. Silence hid in silence is suspicious, arouses mistrust, it is just as though one were to betray something, at least betrayed that one was keeping silence. But silence concealed by a decided talent for conversation—as true as ever I live—that is silence” —Søren Kierkegaard
