Silence, Worship of

Silence, Worship of, Carlyle's name for the sacred respect for restraint in speech till “thought has silently matured itself, ... to hold one's tongue till some meaning lie behind to set it wagging,” a doctrine which many misunderstand, almost wilfully, it would seem; silence being to him the very womb out of which all great things are born.
