Noise is the most impertinent of all forms of interruption. It is not only an interruption, but also a disruption of thought. - Arthur Schopenhauer (Studies in Pessimism Quotes)

Noise is the most impertinent of all forms of interruption. It is not only an interruption, but also a disruption of thought.[Der Lärm aber ist die impertinenteste aller Unterbrechungen, da er sogar unsere eigenen Gedanken unterbricht, ja zerbricht.]
