Silence is the Greatest Lesson

Silence is the Greatest Lesson Ever Preached
How wonderful is the silence of Christ in the Tabernacle.

Silence is the greatest lesson ever preached.

- Silence under irritation
- Silence under criticism
- Silence under disappointment
- Silence when rebuffed
- Silence under ingratitude
- Silence under jealousy in oneself
- Silence under the jealousy of others
- Silence under disloyalty
- Silence when self-pleased
- Silence in sorrows of all kinds

No practice seems of more value than silence.

It gives the impression of latent force.
It wins confidence.
It secures deference.

A judicious reserve clothes a person with an air of mystery,
often the most interesting aspect of personality.

Silence has also a positive quality in forebearance.

There are forbearances of speech that constitute most effective replies;
which work persuasion that a torrent of eloquence cannot accomplish.
