How do you feel today?    I feel ...

The mark of solitude is silence, as speech is the mark of community. Silence and speech have the same inner correspondence and difference as do solitude and community. One does not exist without the other. Right speech comes out of silence, and right silence comes out of speech.

A bit about Dietrich Bonhoeffer ...

Dietrich Bonhoeffer (born February 4, 1906 in Breslau, now Wrocaw, Poland; died April 9, 1945 at Flossenbrg concentration camp) was a German religious leader and participant in the resistance movement against Nazism. Bonhoeffer, a Lutheran pastor and theologian, took part in the plots being planned by members of the Abwehr (Military Intelligence Office) to assassinate Hitler. He was arrested, imprisoned, and eventually hanged following the failure of the July 20, 1944, assassination attempt.
