Quiet Vs. Loud

In this second part, I struggled to illustrate the contrast between loud and quiet via typography. I really wanted the type to speak for itself, with colors and textures to help support it.  I still feel that I can push it further, but I also want to be careful not to go overboard and lose the balance and simplicity that I'm striving to maintain.  I have not added any patterns or textures yet, but I do want to incorporate it into the final version.  

Suggestions and feedback are welcome.

The concept behind this sketch is to illustrate the meaning behind the quote "The quietest people have the loudest thoughts."  Through the use of color, typography, and texture, I want to show the contrast between the demure, pensive figure in the corner and the boldness and vibrancy of the quote in the bubble.
