The Daily Dharma – October 13, 2021

It is silence that keeps us
from giving full rein
to the empty imaginings
and cruel commentaries
always too fresh at hand
in our narcissistic selves.
“It is written,” the rule teaches,
“In a flood of words you will not avoid sin.

Joan Chittister
from The Monastery of the Heart
Chapter: Silence
