Stillness
 
A horrid stillness first invades the ear,
And in that silence we the tempest fear.
        Dryden.—Astrea Redux, Line 7.

Stillness, with Silence at her back, entered the solitary parlour, and drew their gauzy mantle over my Uncle Toby’s head; and Listlessness, with her lax fibre and undirected eye, sat quietly down beside him in his arm-chair.
        Sterne.—Tristram Shandy, Vol. VI. Chap. XXXIV.
