Talk

Henry Van Dyke

Never believe anything bad about anybody unless you positively know it to be true; never tell even that unless you feel that it is absolutely necessary – and remember that God is listening while you tell it.

Walt Disney

The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.

G. K. Chesterton

The really burning enthusiast never interrupts; he listens to the enemy’s arguments as eagerly as a spy would listen to the enemy’s arrangements.

Author Unknown

If you know of a skeleton hidden away
In a closet, and guarded and kept from the day
In the dark; whose showing, whose sudden display
Would cause grief and sorrow and lifelong dismay,
It’s a pretty good plan to forget it.

If you know of a spot in the life of a friend
(We all have spots concealed, world without end)
Whose touching his heartstrings would sadden or rend,
Till the shame of its showing no grieving could mend,
It’s a pretty good plan to forget it.

Thomas Jefferson

The most valuable of all talents is that of never using two words when one will do.

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.

Mark Twain

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