Our silence makes us better listeners. It allows us to better understand our surroundings. Chaos becomes more comprehensible when we are silent. However, this does not mean that we should not speak out our minds or express our opinions.
Nature and the universe speaks to us. It is not quiet. It speaks the truth. It is not boastful. Nature goes about its course and it does not allow anything to get in its way. It follows its natural path. Let us learn from nature.
Communication is imperative.
So why do many people quote this saying?: “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.” Critics, competitors, those who do not understand, or those who do not want their opinions contradicted usually make this quote with the intention of demeaning the other person. However, there are the few times when this saying applies to pompous individuals.
If you know the truth and it needs to be expressed, do not hesitate. Speak out. You may not be a great public speaker or a charismatic person, but do not let this stop you. Do not let the critics put you down. Be like nature. Communicate the truth.
When it comes to children, allow them to express their minds and while doing so teach them the meaning of prudence. Do not suppress them and then take the chance of scarring them for life and making them introverts.
