This quote is from George Prochnik's book, In Pursuit of Silence: Listening for Meaning in a World of Noise (Doubleday, 2010), 268. From a Jewish family and now living in New York, Prochnik has lectured in both American and English Literature at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and also works as a therapist. He is a writer of fiction, poetry and essays, including works about psychology and psychotherapy. For a link to all his varied books, see here. The book from which today's quote is taken was the inspiration behind a beautiful and meditative documentary film that shares its title, In Pursuit of Silence, by Patrick Shen.
