There are a lot of good ones out there, here are a few:

"Silence is the great teacher, and to learn its lessons you must pay attention to it. There is no substitute for the creative inspiration, knowledge, and stability that come from knowing how to contact your core of inner silence. "
- Deepak Chopra

"Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself, and know that everything in life has purpose. There are no mistakes, no coincidences, all events are blessings given to us to learn from."
--Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

"We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature-trees, flowers, grass-grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence...we need silence to be able to touch souls."
--Mother Teresa

"It is in deep solitude that I find the gentleness with which I can truly love my brothers. The more solitary I am the more affection I have for them…. Solitude and silence teach me to love my brothers for what they are, not for what they say." - Thomas Merton

"The more articulate somebody is, the more suspicious I am of them. I like to feel that the important things remain unsaid. "
-- Daniel Day-Lewis (teehee)

"Let thy speech be better than silence, or be silent."
--Dionysius the Elder

"We in the "developed" world seem to have many auditory strategies that insulate us from the presence of silence, simplicity, and solitude. When I return to Western culture after time in desert, mountain or forest, I discover how we have filled our world with a multiplicity of noises, a symphony of forgetfulness that keeps our won thoughts and realizations, feelings and intuitions out of audible range."
--Joan Halifax

"A note of music gains significance from the silence on either side."
--Anne Morrow Lindberg

"Many attempts to communicate are nullified by saying too much." - Robert Greenleaf

Mark Twain Said;
"There are three kinds of lies:
Lies
Damned lies
And statistics. XD
Seriously though I took stats in college and I can see the merit of this article.

On this site's search field I typed in "Minimalism". This blog was one on the list. One of the better ones I may add.
