Silence is a bliss because it’s the true friend that never betrays.
Silence is best learned from the talkative, privacy from the gossiper, tolerance from the racist and intolerant, patience from the unrest, focus from the unfocused, kindness from the unkind, courage from the fearful, gratitude from the ungrateful, caress and care from the violent and life is constantly making the list longer, and sometimes we are representing ourselves some of these for a while.
All these have roles in our lives. Treasure the lesson, but don’t follow the teacher. Be true to who you are and who you want to be. Let the train of your life to stop in the station and let these passengers go out. At each station, new passengers can always come in, for shorter or longer distances. The important persons in your life will be with you all the way from the moment they got on your life’s train. All the others are just passengers.
