The Yays and Nays                 

 I like trains.  At least modern trains offer leg room space.  There’s no traffic jams.  You are close to the ground.  The scenery is Tops.

My train ride on VIA from Montreal was all of those things.  Still, my conclusion on the best mode of  travel is with the feet on the ground.  After hours of uploading community theatre on YouTube (look up THE WALKING MONK DRAMAS) I took that much needed trek in the silence of night.

“Silence,” I thought, “while walking is sacred.”  As much as I like trains I also like silence at times.  And here are some quotes:

“We will remember not the words of our enemies but the silence of our friends.”                                                         
             - Martin Luther King

“A True Friend’s Silence hurts more than an Enemy’s Rough Words.”               
“Open your mouth only if what you are going to say is more beautiful than the silence.”

“Silence is the most powerful scream.”

“SPEAK only when you feel that your words are better than your SILENCE.”

“To hear, one must be silent.”                                          

         - Ursula K. LeGuim

“Silence speaks WHEN words can’t.”

“Your silence doesn’t mean that you quit. It simply means that you don’t want argue with people who just don’t want to understand.”

“Having the maturity to know sometimes silence is more powerful than having the last word.”

         - Thema Davis
