I don't know where you live, Thinker... Living in a big city I so much agree with this quote. Silence is so peaceful and full of meaning. The city with its machines and cars screams and howls and makes you crazy like nothing else...
I agree with you ,we are almost used to live in sound pollution today. Lots of people even find silence annoying in a way, like they are afraid to stay alone in silence with themselves without anything to amuse their mind. In a way, they want to be distracted.Right now i live in a smaller city, but i totally understand how terribly noisy Paris must be.
I live for those quiet times. Not necessarily complete silence because I love to work with bird sounds and monkeys chattering and especially the sound of rushing water but the jarring sounds of traffic and machinery grates my nerves.
