THE ENERGY OF SILENCE - Taking control of your mouth so you can take control of your life

“When you are trying to impress people with words, the more you say, the more common you appear, and the less in control. Even if you are saying something banal, it will seem original if you make it vague, open-ended, and sphinxlike. Powerful people impress and intimidate by saying less. The more you say, the more likely you are to say something foolish.”
Robert Greene – The 48 Laws of Power

“When the moon is full, the oyster opens up its shell. When the crab sees it thus, he will insert a stone or straw inside the shell, thus preventing the oyster from closing it again; whereupon the crab devours him. So it is with him who opens his mouth to tell a secret; he becomes the victim of an indiscreet listener.”

Leonardo da Vinci, 1452-1519
