German term or phrase:In der Ruhe liegt die Kraft
Another slogan being used by a manufacturer of car parts - implying, obviously, that their parts lead to particularly quiet performance. It has been previously translated as "Power lies in silence" which I find unsatisfactory - any better ideas?
What a stunning range of answers. I'm going to give the points to Klaus for sheer innovative brilliance, although I have to confess I didn't use it - it's just a bit to subtle for my rather bald and factual text. In the end I went for something with quiet in it, realising that they later claim that their device reduces engine noise by XX decibels but doesn't actually make it silent. Thanks to all. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
