I know it's a long time but everything seems to be back after the summer break. We can catch up thanks to an interesting entry written by Vicky. Please read it and then comment on it.
I want to share with you some thoughts that started “wandering” around my mind after reading an article about not talkative people.
The article said that talking isn’t bad, but talking less is better, because you finish earlier.
In general, talking could be a brief operation most of the times. Definitely, there aren’t so many issues to talk about. Everything might be rather short, almost always, to go to the next point or leave home.
Some sentences, after the first verb, turn into a high wall, sometimes impassable.
To express yourself with shortness could be difficult, not everybody has the ability to be “people of few words”. Needless to say, you don’t need to keep quiet. A laconic and cautious guy isn’t a silent person who never has anything to say. Absolutely not, he is more than that. He probably has a lot to say, but he gives it up, or says it briefly, encodes it, or simply says it to himself.
Few words aren’t much silence around them, they are other things. To start with, they are what they are, they are just enough, the necessary ones, neither one more.
Few words, although some ones, are some kind of philosophy of sobriety, and the idea that life passes quickly, especially when you tell it with so many sentences. This is the attitude you must have, you couldn’t improvise or pretend, probably you’d need to practise for years.
People who remain silent before a few words could be eloquent, in their own way, they never bore the audience.
A writer said that talking about something which explains itself is a waste of time. A book hasn’t been written to be talked about after finishing reading it, overall it has been created not for talking about it.
I’m not a talkative person, but I always saw it like a defect. After I read this article, I am starting to think that maybe it wasn’t. Probably I have a skill to say only the necessary words, and I prefer spending my time on other stuff instead of diving in a long conversation or speech, from time to time it could be harder to get to the point than filling them with useless words.
Of course, to be in tune with this article, this writing couldn’t be very long. Common! Now it is your turn. What do your think about it?
