Silence is sometimes the best answer. – Dalai Lama
Meaning of this Quote
At times, you need to understand that silence is the best answer. It can actually be one of the most meaningful replies that you can ever give to someone without actually making use of any words. Whether you would agree or not, you can actually make someone understand your feelings or emotions without even uttering a word by your mouth.
Many a time, we keep on nagging around things just because we want to put forward our point, but we tend to forget the fact that people only listen as much as they want to listen.
Although it is easier said than done, often in life we get into situations that things aren’t under our control or probably there’s no use of trying hard to make the ends meet. That’s where we should learn to remain silent. It is essential to realize which weapon to use in such a situation.
Of course, you will not want to make a fool of yourself by firing back with the trash thrown by your mouth. Certainly not! That’s when you should better choose to remain silent. Silence is a slap that can knock the senses in others’ minds. It has got a lot of power. All you need is to understand when to use this weapon.
On the other hand, you should also take care of not making a fool of yourself. Just as it is futile to make fools understand (people who don’t even have an intention to analyze and figure out if they went wrong somewhere), the same goes otherwise too!
On the other note, instead of speaking trash in anger and frustration, try to remain calm and composed. Why make a fool of yourself by overreacting when others aren’t ready to accept the things as they are? You need not be defensive at times. This is because you know that no matter what others say about you, they are totally irrelevant and you hardly care about them.
Ignorance in such a situation is a showcase of your maturity. Although you do not send words, silence still remains to be one of the most intellectual answers. Let your actions speak and reveal the truth, why waste your voice on such insignificant tasks?
