Silence!!!



" If A is success in life, then A=x+y+z. where x is work, y is play and z is keeping our mouth shut!, " read the status message of my my friend Preetam ( see I mentioned you on my blog!!!!)


X is present in my life most of the time...I'm not a complete lukkha as some people think

Y too is present

Z is completely ABSENT!!!!!


There are times innumerable where I wish I would keep quiet..I mean it..If you knew me you would know that I cant keep my mouth shut...


When I went to Blore for a trip for 4 days , I came back with no voice! Seriously thats how much I spoke..People were tired of my voice, my sound. This seriously has its consequences. People, random people, know so much about me and I feel so "exposed"... There is no exclusivity.



Sam Rayburn: No one has a finer command of language than the person who keeps his mouth shut.



Maybe thats true. I always liked people who were silent because they kept me guessing about what they were thinking or feeling. Somehow I valued their opinions more because they werent openly expressed. Liked something precious. Do others also do that? Dont they say, " Silence is golden"? Arent those your best friends to whom you didnt have to say a single word and yet they understood?



We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence... We need silence to be able to touch souls.” - Mother Theresa



Is it really true? Am I giving too much out ? Well maybe its time for a change!!

I am so so confused about whether I speak too much or on the lesser side or just perfect( I am really being super optimistic) . Well yea sometimes keeping shut is the best thing. And I have been able to do it somehow. You see...figured that out from mistakes! :P

Smile an everlasting smile,
a smile can bring you near to me.
Don't ever let me find you down, cause that would
bring a tear to me.
This world has lost its glory,
let's start a brand new story now, my love.
Right now, there'll be no other time
and I can show you how, my love
Talk in everlasting words,
and dedicate them all to me.
And I will give you all my life,
I'm here if you should call to me.
You think that I don't even mean a single word I say.
It's only words, and words are all I have,
to take your heart away.
Da da da da da da da,
Da da da da da da da da
Da da da da da da,
Da da da da da da da da da
You think that I don't even mean a single word I say.
It's only words, and words are all I have,
to take your heart away.
It's only words, and words are all I have,
to take your heart away.
It's only words, and words are all I have,
to take your heart away.


Lol silence has no value in life.

silence has its own power..the things which can't be described by yelling can be conveyed by remaining silent...its just that ---
jo bat dil se nikalti hai wo dil tak zaroor pahuchti hai.

well done :)

you talk too much?well change the formula and show tht u r successfull even without Z..keeping you mouth shut here might have to do more with being wise rather than a chatterbox..
ther is a saying that ithought would be apt
'A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard.
Why can't we all be like that wise old bird?'

Dont listen to wat anyone says ... Just be yourself. If u r a talkative person, so be it. Why do u want to change something which is like your identity ! ?

freedom of the speech is the greatestpower but it doesn"t mean you keep on speaking rather than listening even the nature had said so by giving 2 years and one mouth. so the person who speaks out too much losses the importance of there words!!!!!!!!!!

well im a bit of a mixed personality as far as silence goes...

i can keep silent for hours on end.

but when i fell like talkin, i can be a motormouth too...mebbe not too loud, but a motormouth,nevertheless. i usually am quite reticent with peopleive met less than 5-6 times..but once i find my comfort zone, i hate to keep quiet.

have u ever felt too much noise can kill, and then sometimes have u felt that silence kills?
