Better to Remain Silent…

…and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt. (Abraham Lincoln)

19 Sin is not ended by multiplying words,
but the prudent hold their tongues. (Proverbs 10:19 NIV)

I have learned to talk less and listen more. I was told that this is why we have two ears and one mouth, and I believe that is true.

I was not always this way and I suffered from my overly verbose nature. The key is to cultivate the right words and use them sparingly.
