    Default silence

    Everyone knows that in a room of talkative fools, the silent man is wise.

    & when talk is idle, he who would take action must become silent before anything else. Great action is vengeance, & vengeance is the daughter of silence.

    Talk is cheap, & to be seen & not heard is more powerful than any impression of words.

    dood how wise is dat
    -----------------

    A man builds. A parasite asks 'Where is my share?'
    A man creates. A parasite says, 'What will the neighbors think?'
    A man invents. A parasite says, 'Watch out, or you might tread on the toes of God... '

    Not very. Everybody who answers this post is then a fool for not being silent. Except me. I figured out Victor's rubik cube.

    Just like children, and servants.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    They say silence is golden and I agree with that, I greatly prefer it over chatter. But I think there is such a thing as too much silence. Verbal communication is necessary sometimes, especially when you're trying to connect and understand that which is not understood otherwise.

    Connection is different though. It's a special thing to find someone you can share anything with. Some people never find a person like that.
