Dignified and respectful quietude speaks much louder than pomp and circumstance when it comes to remembering those who died.
Some say that sudden knowledge of mystical matters is accomplished only in complete quietude, or that Creator, in one of God's many forms, appears only in orderly ways that are beauteous and picturesque, or that the mystical appears only in completely silent ways. All are true. Except for the 'only' part. Clarissa Pinkola Estes
Funeral pomp is more for the vanity of the living than for the honor of the dead.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
