The day is made up of its moments of silence.
The rest is lost time.

  1. The original Spanish is:

    El día se compone de sus momentos de silencio.
    Lo demás es tiempo perdido.

  2. Astounding. My silences, for which I am forced to pay the drug store for ear plugs these days, will, for a time, be filled with meditation on the ramifications of this astounding statement. It surely rings true, so to speak.
