Extolling silence… through words…
Language is finite
Words are limited
Oratory may incite violence
Not so, reticence
Verbs & nouns may lead to dissonance
Reserve results in consonance
Talk may mean misunderstanding
Taciturnity is rewarding.
Clamourous speech may cause disease
Soothing hush induces peace.
A picture may define the value of a thousand words
Measuring the worth of stillness: is it possible even for nerds?
But, wait, here’s a point to ponder:
While at words & talk, we might mock and scoff
In extolling silence & quiet, the word has the last laugh!
We may thus conclude true silence to mean
The calm of the mind and not the tongue, as seen.
