“Talk, talk, talk: the utter and heartbreaking stupidity of words.”
― William Faulkner, Mosquitoes 

“All I want is blackness. Blackness and silence.”
― Sylvia Plath


"Every word is like an unnecessary stain on silence and nothingness."
— Samuel Beckett

"I don’t know: perhaps it’s a dream, all a dream. (That would surprise me.) I’ll wake, in the silence, and never sleep again. (It will be I?) Or dream (dream again), dream of a silence, a dream silence, full of murmurs (I don’t know, that’s all words), never wake (all words, there’s nothing else).

You must go on, that’s all I know. ..."
— Samuel Beckett
