“We live very distracted, very orderly, very busy lives. And sometimes we convince ourselves that if we spend some time quietly we’re almost wasting time.
And so we don’t often put much thought into creating a space of quiet. If we don’t do this and if we don’t fall in love with silence, if we don’t see it as a priority in our lives, then what’s going to happen is that we’re going to find ourselves listening to the wrong voices.”
