“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 because only those who are comfortable with each other can sit without speaking. This is the great paradox.” 
 ― Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook

Lovely quote! One I agree with - silence is pure. And in a house with three kids it's also rare LOL:)
