The Ancients Valued Silence

Keep silent for the most part, speak only when you must, and then briefly.  Epictetus (AD 55 – 135), Greek philosopher and teacher

He is nearest to the gods who knows how to be silent.  Cato the Elder (234 BC – 149 BC), Roman senator and historian

Often silence is the wisest thing for a man to heed. Pindar, (522 BC – 443BC), Greek lyric poet

Our ancestors valued silence. Shouldn’t we?
