"I have learned silence from the talkative; tolerance from the intolerant and kindness from the unkind. I should not be ungrateful to those teachers." (Kahlil Gibran in Sand and Foam found in One Day At A Time in Al-Anon, 27 March)

Silence sometimes is louder than speech. Know when to speak and when to be silent. (Warren W. Wiersbe, Chapter-By-Chapter Bible Commentary, p. 333)

Occasionally refrain from expressing your opinion when someone else is expressing his, and see what that feels like. (after Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth, p. 217)

What makes you think, if I ask for your opinion, that I'll listen to it? (Richard E. Henthorn, 16 March 2011)

We need a reason to speak, but none to keep silent. (Pierre Nicole in The Book Of Choices by Mike Magee, M.D., p. 101)
