“Moments of silence are part of the music”

"Moments of silence are part of the music” is a saying that has been printed on several gift items. Robert Fulghum’s Words I Wish I Wrote: A Collection of Writing That Inspired My Ideas (1997) credited “Unknown.”

The authorship of the modern saying remains anonymous. It’s possible that the saying began on a wall plaque.

When I lived in Texas one of the most pleasant and life-changing experiences was singing in civic choruses and church choirs. Learning and performing the music, whether it was the classics of Bach, Mendelssohn or Haydn, or contemporary writers such as Rutter or Sondheim, was pure joy.

“On another wall we stencilled a quote, ‘Moments of silence are part of the music.’ I have no idea where it comes from, but we just like it because it spoke to us.”
