Speech needs company, Silence needs solitude.
Speech wants to conquer others, Silence helps conquer oneself.
Speech makes friends or foes, Silence befriends all.
Speech demands respect, Silence commands it.
Speech is earth-bound, Silence is heaven-bound.
Speech educates, Silence exalts.
Speech is subjective, Silence objective.
Speech has regrets,Silence none.
Speech has limitations,Silence is boundless.
Speech needs effort,Silence a lot more.
Speech is human,Silence is Divine.
While speaking you are heard by creatures,In silence you hear the creator.
Silence leads to a stillness of the mind,
Then to introspection,
Then to self-cleansing,
Finally to liberation.
Happy Birthday to Me...
