The Wisdom of Silence

Be silent,
if you can’t say it
without screaming.

Be silent,
when you are
feeling critical

Be silent,
if your words could
damage a friendship

Be silent,
when you don’t
have all facts

Be silent,
if your words will
offend a person

Be silent,
if you would be ashamed
of your words later

Be silent,
if your words convey
the wrong impression

Be silent,
in the heat
of anger

Be silent,
when it is time
to listen

A meaningful
silence is always better
than meaningless words.

    Yes indeed! And if you’re silent around people who constantly run their mouth, you’d be surprised at the information you can gather about them! 😀 You’ll know them before they do!
