There are decades in which nothing happens and weeks in which decades happen.

| Vladimir Lenin

The truth about human life is that most of the time there is nothing to do and therefore the wise man — or woman — cultivates the art of doing nothing.

| John Burdett, Bangkok 8

When I pronounce the word Future,
the first syllable already belongs to the past.

When I pronounce the word Silence,
I destroy it.

When I pronounce the word Nothing,
I make something no non-being can hold.
