Quotes from the Masters: Fellini

This is my second time participating in Robin’s Quotes from the Masters. She provides a quote and then you can interpret the quote via pictures, stories, poems, and more.  Here is this week’s quote:

“If there were a little more silence, if we all kept quiet…maybe we could understand something.” Federico Fellini

This photo was taken in Chobe National Park at sunset. During this sunset, I noticed that many of us were quiet and just watched. For other entries please visit her page

    Amazing how much we were if we listened …. or tasted while we ate …. of examine while we look … great pic! (Sorry I haven’t been around of late – as I try to catch up).

    • TBM says:

      I agree Frank, we all should take more time to live in the moment and enjoy. And no worries, you are always welcome when you get a chance. Life gets busy and I appreciate any time you stop by for a visit. I’ll be away from blogging soon for a bit, so please accept my apologies for a short absence.

  10. Words of life. It is in silence that we get to hear the deepest longings of our heart. Sometimes we need to consciously just keep quiet and enjoy what the day has unfolded in front of our eyes, like the inspiring sunset. Thanks.

      It is a great quote…I think it is the first time I read it. Some people have a way with words to silence others, in a good way.

  18. This is fun! I like the idea of interpreting a quote through images. That is a gorgeous sunset. Reminds me of the kind of sunsets I’ve seen when in California.
