I read an article recently and got inspired to share my thoughts on the topic. The article titles "Shut up and Listen" written by Dave Kerpen is available on LinkedIn. My current thoughts on silence included a poem by someone called "The Desiderata" ( Translated as Desired Things) starts "Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence." Followed by the all time repeated and overly used quote "Silence is Golden". And of course lets not forget " Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt".
