The preacher wrote well: there is a time for everything under the sun. A time for speech, and a time for silence, among many other things. Other philosophers identified the gold in silence, silence in music, silence and innocence like lambs to slaughter, not exposing the likely folly, fence around wisdom, fruits of peace, and also God's most favourable words- be still and see I am God.
But of the mortal man, nothing comes better than trying to explain our rights. We go out and trade insults over thing s that don't concern us. We trade our two-pence stupidity to other people's malaise when we offer advice that is worth 5h1t. Or else, we are quick to air our dirty laundry for all to see. Words said, when silence was the obvious winner.
Many forumers herein have their share of haters. And very much welcome they are when they can not redeem an answer in the silence to their worthless critique. In silence and in confidence likes some strength that is hard to find. Not rising to the barb when some mindless response muddles the intended message is a measure of strength of character, and that separates the chaff from the wheat.
The message has gone forth, and those who choose to muddle the waters to conceal the meaning only work like the detractors of the olden days who took the apostles to jail on nailed them to trees. It is no different from the cadre tossing grenades to worshipers. It is no different from commenting on a message that seeks no comment from you and you and you.
Silence has a way of expressing it in written words. Hear them that way without hurting your ears, if your brain has the capacity to comprehend. That is why there is much wisdom in the written word than in the spoken word. Because, silence is golden.
