Knowledge of Speech, But Not of Silence

June 28, 2011

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

Knowledge of speech, but not of silence;
Knowledge of words, and ignorance of the Word.
All our knowledge brings us nearer to our ignorance,
All our ignorance brings us nearer to death,
But nearness to death no nearer to GOD.

– from the opening stanza of The Rock, by T.S. Eliot, 1934
