A reminder that often listening, observing and contemplating is the correct action. How are we to learn if we always speak. When situations arise, often the ‘season for silence’ allows us to gather the right amount of knowledge and take stock of our emotive responses to respond with wisdom.
It is a great thing to know the season for speech and the season for silence –
We have been given two ears and but a single mouth in order that we may hear more and talk less.
– Zeno of Citium
A man is not called wise because he talks and talks again; but if he is peaceful, loving and fearless then he is in truth called wise
