Silence is a Skill

The craft of a person in this world is to behave as if mute!  The craft is not to be a babbler. This is something one has to learn: a baby knows how to talk and babbles as it pleases him. Silence needs to be learned, because silence is a great skill, and by it you recognize the person of intelligence.  The nature of a person is his solitude. That’s the only way for the soul and spirit to develop their strength. ~ R’ Shlomo Wolbe zt”l
