Silence Is A Friend That Will Never Betray

The title of this post is a quote from Confucius. There is a great lesson in that phrase that we should ponder. It doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t talk. Some things don’t need to be said, or shouldn’t be said. If it doesn’t need to be said, don’t say it. If you need to say something, think about it first, digest it then ask yourself, “Does it really need to be said”. I bet the answer is no.

While you think about that one, I want to leave you with another quote from this wise man:

“Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in getting up every time we do”  – Confucius
