Be silent – in the heat of anger
Be silent – when you don’t have all the facts
Be silent – if your words will offend a weaker person
Be silent – if your words will offend anyone
Be silent – when you ought to listen
Be silent – if its none of your business
Be silent – when you wish to speak ill of someone not present at the moment
Be silent – if your words will damage and not heal
Be silent – if you will have to shout to say it
Be silent – if your words are not a reflection of who you are
Be silent – if you have already said it before
Be silent – and let your success make the noise
Be silent – because the judgement of when to, will define you
But what do you do when you see the whole world doing exactly the opposite and moving ahead of you.
I think all this matters and works when the other person understands and is on the same level as you are.
I love your introspective zeal. Kudos!
@Abhishek – None matters apart from whatever you are and what you think. The fame, the glory, the ambition and what not. Everything is useless if you cannot confront your conscience. You are what you think and what you do. Everything written above is the reinforcement of the thought that defines you. And it is an extremely positive and caring thought. It requires tremendous self control to hide your emotions which have a negative impact on those around you.
