01/28/20 - NNHS Newsletter - Silence Is Golden

“Speech is too often not, as the Frenchman defined it, the art of concealing Thought; but of quite stifling and
suspending Thought, so that there is none to conceal. Speech too is great, but not the greatest. As the Swiss
Inscription says: Sprecfien ist silbern, Schweigen ist golden (Speech is silvern, Silence is golden);
or as I might rather express it: Speech is of Time, Silence is of Eternity.

- Thomas Carlyle, in Sartor Resartus, translated from German, 1831
(04 Dec 1795 - 05 Feb 1881)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Well, sometimes it is, and then sometimes... 

BONUS - Silence Is Golden - The Tremeloes

"Silence is Golden" is a song co-written by Bob Gaudio of the American rock band, The Four Seasons, with Bob Crewe. It was released as a B-side to the hit song "Rag Doll," in 1964.[1]

It was later covered by the English band The Tremeloes, whose recording was a #1 hit in the UK Singles Chart on 18 May 1967,[2] staying at the top for a total of three weeks.[3] Guitarist Rick West sang lead vocal on "Silence Is Golden".

The Tremeloes single hit #11 in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart[4] on the Epic label and was one of the top 100 songs of 1967. The track sold one million copies globally, earning gold disc status.[5]

The Tremeloes also recorded an Italian version, E in silenzio.

Golden Snitch (from Harry Potter) - "Desperately Seeking a quick Harry Potter project? Simple and quick, made using only a few yards of worsted weight yarn and a little stuffing, the Golden Snitch works up faster than you can say Quidditch!
Described in the books as "tiny, about the size of a large walnut... bright gold [with] little fluttering silver wings," the Snitch is the most valuable ball in a Quidditch game - and it is, by far, the most difficult to catch. Your crocheted version may not fly, but you'll look far cooler carrying it than a mimbulus mimbletonia! "

I answered, "Dust."

Silence Is Golden

Co-written by Bob Gaudio (b. 17 Nov 1942) and Bob Crewe (b. 12 Nov 1931)

Recorded by The Tremeloes, 1967

Oh, don't it hurt deep inside
To see someone do something to her
Oh, don't it pain to see someone cry
Oh, especially when someone is her
Silence is golden, but my eyes still see
Silence is golden, golden
But my eyes still see
Talking is cheap
People follow like sheep
Even though there is nowhere to go
How could she tell
He deceived her so well
Pity, she'll be the last one to know
How many times will she fall for his line
Should I tell her or should I keep cool
And if I tried, I know she'd say I lied
Mind your business
Don't hurt her
You fool
