PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Yeats, and others who write about silence. 35 Writing Prompts to engage your students in living in the moment, clearing the mind of distractions, leaving behind the past. Each page has one of my wildlife photos and words of wisdom about silence from some of our greatest writers:

“Silent solitude makes true speech possible and personal. If I am not in touch with my own belovedness, then I cannot touch the sacredness of others. If I am estranged from myself, I am likewise a stranger to others.” - Brennan Manning

“All the wonders of life are already here. They’re calling you. If you can listen to them, you will be able to stop running. What you need, what we all need, is silence. Stop the noise in your mind in order for the wondrous sounds of life to be heard. Then you can begin to live your life authentically and deeply.” - Thich Nhat Nanh

“In silence there is eloquence. Stop weaving and see how the pattern improves.” – Rumi

“Silence can often be more disturbing than noise, it reveals the complicated mechanism of our thoughts.” - José Rodrigues Miguéis

“It was mortifying to find how strong the habit of idle speech may become in one’s self. One need not always be saying something in this noisy world.” - Sarah Orne Jewett
