“When You Say Nothing At All” is one of my favourite songs. I love Alison Krauss’ version as the clarity of her voice really emphasises the poignancy of the lyrics.

I love the suggestion how sometimes, silence is golden. Words may help us convey a lot, yet sometimes, no words are neccessary.

I finish off with one of my favourite quotes in literature,

I cannot make speeches Emma:’ he soon resumed; and in a tone of such sincere, decided, intelligible tenderness as was tolerably convincing. – ‘If I loved you less I might be able to talk about it more. But you know what I am.

Emma, Jane Austen
