Elie Wiesel (September 30, 1928 – July 2, 2016) I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. Jewish Holocaust 1941 — 1945
Aldous Huxley (July 26, 1894 – November 22, 1963) When the inexpressible had to be expressed, Shakespeare laid down his pen and called for music. And if the music should also fail? Well, there was always silence to fall back on. For always, always and everywhere, the rest is silence.
