When it comes to communication, if you don’t have anything important to say, just listen to what others are saying. You learn more when you listen.
Why silence is important.

“The things you do not have to say make you rich.”– William Stafford
“Silence gives consent.”– Pope Boniface
“He sees only night, and hears only silence.”- Jacques Delille
“The silence of the people is a lesson for kinds.”- Soanen, Bishop of Senax
