Praise of taciturnity (reload)

Binn béal 'na chomhnuidhe.

The mouth that speaks not is sweet to hear.

The peace of the night.

  1. Silence is even more sweet in Gaelic though.

  3. And sometimes the mouth that speaks is sweeter still.

  4. I shared the proverb on Facebook. If you had a little gadget (like Jams) I could have also put the photo which is so very eloquent!
    I might try to print it, and repost it on Facebook if you allow me.

  5. Is it, Andrew?

    Claude,
    analogue, one should talk, when thinking?
    I see. That's why there are to be heard so many cretins and simpletons talking.

    Ashley,
    there's almost no proverb without counterpart, eh?
    I do see your point, though. And yes, you are right.

    Claude,
    what gadget do you mean?
    Right clicking on any pic, you should be able to download it.
    Thus, no gadget needed. :)
