“His own opinion, which he does not air, is that the origin of speech lie in song, and the origins of song in the need to fill out with sound the overlarge and rather empty human soul.”
― J.M. Coetzee, Disgrace

“Emptiness which is conceptually liable to be mistaken for sheer nothingness is in fact the reservoir of infinite possibilities.”
― D.T. Suzuki

“Youth always tries to fill the void, an old man learns to live with it.”
― Mark Z. Danielewski

“By the Quiet Moment,

if you want to be woken by emptiness,

Just open your mind,
and your heart will meet something…
it always has something there.”
― Suka
