Silent anguish is the more dangerous
The world would be happier if men had the same capacity to be silent that they have to speak
Silence is safer than speech
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool then to speak out and remove all doubt
To stand in silence when they should be protesting makes cowards out of men
Silence is the wit of fools
Silence moves faster when it's going backward
Silence is a source of great strength
Absolute silence leads to sadness. It is the image of death
Great souls suffer in silence

Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
