“In silence man can most readily preserve his integrity.”
“He that would live in peace and at ease, must not speak all he knows, nor judge all he sees.”
In the End, we
will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Silence is a true
friend who never betrays.
He who does not
understand your silence will probably not understand your words.
Silence is one of
the hardest arguments to refute.
strengthens authority so much as silence.
Leonardo da Vinci
