What a cute book about different types of quiet. Perfect for bedtime, too. 😴

To anyone who is interested or Quaker curious, this is a good introduction to it. This is one of the oldest sects of Christianity in North America.

JamieArc This is the second post about Quakers I‘ve seen in a week! I love it! (I‘m a Quaker). 1mo

Well written account of the impact silence had on society. The author focuses primarily on #prisons & #religious institutions (monestraiers, abbeys, etc.)
I have no problem with the writing or the research. The content and the writing style were not my cup of tea, so to speak.
It was worth a read through once. Slow pace.

‘The extremes of the ascetic life were a response: create something as difficult and disagreeable as dying and you too can be as heroic as the martyrs were.‘ ‘..., almost every account of prolonged silence I have ever read or heard about contain mentions of ‘hearing voices‘, whether these come in the form of a divine intervention or deeply frightening tongues of madness‘ ‘... in the fading night, there‘s nothing else to do save be present‘

The fifth-grade girls and boys at Laketon Elementary don't get along very well. But the real problem is that these kids are loud and disorderly.

Then one day Dave, a certified loudmouth, bumps into an idea -- a big one that makes him try to keep quiet for a whole day. It quickly becomes@a contest. Which team can say the fewest words during two whole days? And it's the boys against the girls.

For some we loved, the loveliest and the best
That from his Vintage rolling Time hath prest,
Have drunk their Cup a Round or two before,
And one by one crept silently to rest.

TimSpalding So how does this work? I post one a day? Do I start counting at 1? 3mo
EadieB @TimSpalding You can start at one or just start with day 16. I think you can look under #litsyhappenings for the prompts for each day or under #cinfhen #TheSpineView #TK421 and #alwaysbeenaloverofbooks who are the hosts. (edited) 3mo
