Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
This is probably the most talkative age in the history of the world--not only because we have more mechanical devices to diffuse our talking but also because we have little inside our minds that did not come from the world outside our minds....there are few listeners, although Saint Paul tells us that 'faith comes from hearing.' If the bodies of most of us were fed as little as the mind, they would soon starve to death. Hyperactivity and love of noise and chatter characterize our age, as a compensation for the profound distrust human beings have of themselves.
