God speaks in silence

Today my quote is from Father Marie-Eugene de L'Enfant Jesus' book I want to see God. I do not know this book but Cardinal Sarah has this quote on p. 22 in his wonderful book, The Problem of Silence:
"God speaks in silence, and silence alone seems able to express Him. For the spiritual person who has known the touch of God, silence and God seem to be identified. And so, to find God again, where would he go, if not to the most silent depths of his soul, into those regions that are so hidden that nothing can any longer disturb them? When he has reached there, he preserves with jealous care the silence that gives him God. He defends it against any agitation, even that of his own powers."

How do you defend your silence as you seek God?
