Silent

Charles de Gaulle

Silence is the ultimate weapon of power.

Albert Einstein

If A is a success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z. Work is x; y is play; and z is keeping your mouth shut.

Jim Stenson

Don’t talk about people behind their backs. If you gossip, people won’t confide in you. Besides, office gossip has a way, mysteriously, of making its way back to the one being gossiped about. Here, as in so many other areas, keep your mouth shut and you’ll stay out of trouble.

William Arthur Ward

We must be silent before we can listen. We must listen before we can learn. We must learn before we can prepare. We must prepare before we can serve. We must serve before we can lead.

Mark Twain

It’s better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than open it and remove all doubt.

Frances De Sales

Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.

Alphonsus Liguori

When we have to reply to some one who speaks harshly to us, we must always do it with gentleness. If we are angry, it is better to keep silence.

Dale Carnegie

The chronic kicker, even the most violent critic, will frequently soften and be subdued in the presence of a patient, sympathetic listener— a listener who will be silent while the irate fault-finder dilates like a king cobra and spews the poison out of his system.
