As you may know, I live by principles, here is one of the principles… more to come in this article:
It is hard to be silently brilliant: lots of thoughts occur when you open your mouth.
But not all thoughts that occur are brilliant… not in a person who isn’t opening his mouth… ((in the cave of your mind everything feels like a brilliant idea. Or looking at it another way: I had two boy friends who were alcoholics. They both fancied themselves profound and brilliant when they were drunk… lol.)) or who are saying the same things over and over again.
Things not worth thinking are also things not worth saying but you don’t know that until you hear the echo. ((This also includes writing that is published… Unfortunately thousands upon thousands of author wannabes, second handers publish crap, but that is another issue entirely. Just like my old van-mates talk and talk and talk about things not worth saying, these wannabes do that in writing…))
What happens when you speak?
Humans didn’t quite become humans until they had something to say. But speaking doesn’t make someone human: having something worth to say does.
70% of humanity, more than five billions people have nothing worth to say.
