One can learn more from talking than they can from speaking. Silence is like the incubation period before one emerges out with an incredible plan.
“Silence is the sleep that nourishes wisdom.” ~ Francis Bacon
We are often fooled to think that spoken words are valuable pieces of advice. They sure are. But silence can teach your truths about yourself that you have forever been avoiding. It shows us the bigger picture, the incomplete part of us, which heals our mind and soul. If you do not know what’s going on within you, how will you express it through words?
“He who does not know how to be silent will not know how to speak.” – Ausonius
Learn to talk less as much as possible. Often because talking will only drain you out of your wisdom and innovative ideas. Talk only when you know it’s absolutely necessary. Talk to brighten up someone’s day, talk to say positive things, to encourage others. Do not speak just because you have to.
Herman Melville comes up with the best saying that “God’s one and only voice is Silence.”
Do you believe in the power of silence? Is it possible to communicate with another individual without talking to them?
