Nice quote here lamenting the disappeared art of silence. I don’t think it’s dead, but we have to fight like hell to keep it from being overwhelmed…

“Silence has been destroyed, but also the idea that it’s important to learn how another person thinks, to enter the mind of another person. The whole idea of empathy is gone. We are now part of this giant machine where every second we have to take out a device and contribute our thoughts and opinions.”

~ Gary Shteyngart, in an interview with Deborah Solomon (New York Times Magazine)
