QUOTE – “SILENCE IS GOLDEN”
I was asked to write an article on this quote, “Silence is golden.”
One day in my younger years, my father and I were walking along, and we passed a group of people talking. Some of them wanted to put their two cents worth in and some of the voices got louder as they wanted to be heard.
I remember my father muttering as we walked along saying, “Silence is golden.”
I had not heard that, and quickly asked my father what he was muttering about and what that meant.
He said, “I just heard the subject they were talking about and it brought to my mind to say it.”
I then asked why he said that? He said, “Oh, it made me think of another quote that explained the silence one.” This quote goes something like this, “Better to stay silent and let people think you are dumb and don’t know anything about the subject, than to open your mouth and prove them right.”
