Speak Only When Necessary


“The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don’t know anything about.”

-Wayne Dyer, the late author and motivational speaker.

The aforementioned quote resonates with me, as there are people who are quick to rebut others but can’t elaborate when they are asked to justify their own different opinion. This gives me the impression that certain people just argue for the sake of arguing. It also reminds me of the saying “The empty barrel makes the most noise.” In such cases, a voice in my head would often remind me of the following:

“When in doubt, say nothing.”

In the end, I believe a true Master is someone who readily admits he doesn’t know everything in life and understands that there’s always something that can be learned from others.
