Nature’s Silence

Nature’s silence is its one remark, and every flake of world is a chip off that old mute and immutable block. The Chinese say that we live in the world of the ten thousand things. Each of the ten thousand things cries out to us precisely nothing. Annie Dillard, The Deer at Providencia, from Teaching a Stone to Talk. Harper, Collins, 1982.
