On Talking


Thoughts on Talking

Better a slip on the stone floor than a slip of the tongue.
--"Ecclessius" (20:18)

He who knows, does not talk; he who talks, does not know.
--Lao Tze (Taoist)

He who truly knows, has no occasion to shout.
--Leonardo di Vinci

At a dinner party we should eat wisely, but not too well; and talk well, but not too wisely.
--Somerset Maugham

Always and never are two words you should always remember never to use.
--Wendell Johnson

The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time,
but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment...
