silence

Posted in communication tagged , at 7:35 pm by weiszguy

I just ran across this quote from Thomas Merton:

If our life is poured out in useless words, we will never hear anything, will never become anything, and in the end, because we have said everything before we had anything to say, we shall be left speechless at the moment of our greatest decision.

I think there is some pretty amazing wisdom in these words.  I speak when I have something to say.  When I’m not speaking, it’s because I have nothing to say.  If you force me to speak when I have nothing to say, what do you expect to hear?
