"The mark of solitude is silence, as speech is the mark of community. Silence and speech have the same inner correspondence and difference as do solitude and community. One does not exist without the other. Right speech comes out of silence, and right silence comes out of speech." Dietrich Bonhoeffer

"To become educated is to be freed to enter the conversation of all the living and the dead; to enter that conversation independently and critically, to be sure, but nonetheless to enter." ... "We know Christ Jesus because long-extinct communities and too easily forgotten generations have allowed us to hear this judging and healing Word." David Tracy

"The unreflected life is not worth living" Socrates

"The unlived life is not worth reflecting upon" Buddha (or a close associate)
