What was Dietrich Bonhoeffer‘s thoughts on the day of solitude and silence? Jon Walker in his recent book, In Visible Fellowship: A Contemporary View of Bonhoeffer’s Classic Work:  Life Together, quotes Bonhoeffer:

Silence is nothing else but waiting for God’s word and coming from God’s Word with a blessing. But everything knows that this is something that needs to be practiced and learned, in these days when talkativeness prevails.
