Just made this video of Adam speaking Latin (+ German) in The Last Duel & Silence.
The senteces he says are below:
In The Last Duel:
- Semper amorem minui vel crescere constat 
- Unam feminam nil prohibet a duobus amari et a duabus mulieribus unum 
- the third sentence is by greek philosopher Plato and I couldn't find a correct latin translated version. 
German, they're talking about the protagonist of a book (Parsifal): 
Jacques: Sag mir (tell me) - Marguerite: Er ist naiv und dumm (he's naive and stupid) / ich bewundere das (I admire that). 
J: Er weisst was er will und er gibt nicht auf, bis er es erreicht. Grosse Geiste gehoeren zusammen. (He knows what he wants and doesn't surrender, until he obtains it. Great souls go together). 
In Silence: -Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum, benedicta tu in mulieribus...  - In nomine Patris et Filii et Spiritus Sancti... 
 - Introibo ad altare Dei, ad Deum qui laetificat juventutem meam. Júdica me, Deus, et discérne causam meam de gente non sancta, ab hómine iníquo, et dolóso érue me. Quia tu es, Deus, fortitúdo mea: quare me repulísti? et quare tristis incédo, dum afflígit me inimícus? 
- Ne permittas me separari a Te. Ab hoste maligno defende me. In hora mortis meae voca me, et jube me venire ad Te, Ut cum Sanctis tuis laudem Te. In saecula saeculorum. Amen.

Silence is something that comes from your heart, not from outside. Silence doesn’t mean not talking and not doing things; it means that you are not disturbed inside. If you’re truly silent, then no matter what situation you find yourself in you can enjoy the silence.
- Thich Nhat Hanh.

Si limitò a guardarmi. Quello sguardo mi disse tutto quello che c'era da dire.

Silence has become a luxury item. Think of the wealth required to purchase a getaway from the noise.
Studies indicate that constant noise boosts stress hormones, blood pressure and susceptibility to other chronic illnesses. It also creates a kind of relentless distractibility that keeps us from noticing our very lives and our internal needs and longings. A never-ending din makes it more difficult to process grief and intense emotions in healthy ways.

Quote
Sometimes we don't say anything. Sometimes we sit on the deck and stare at the masses of goldenrod where the garden used to be and watch the color change from day to day, the high yellow turning to mustard and at last to tarnish. Starlings flitter in the branches of the dead hornbeam by the fence. [. . .] Why am I saying all this to you anyway since you already know it? But of course we always tell each other what we already know. What else? It's the way love is in a late stage of the world.
Hayden Carruth, “Silence,” Collected Shorter Poems (Copper Canyon Press, 1992)

It's so hard to speak and say things that cannot be said. It's so silent.

   Were I to cry out — I can no longer see things clearly — my voice would receive the same indifferent echo from the walls of the earth. ― Clarice Lispector
