Talking

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on listening, words, meaning, peace, silence, thought, bird, talking, fly, speaking, solitutde, meditation, chatter, gossip, and drapery talk

You talk when you cease to be at peace with your thoughts;
And when you can no longer dwell in the solitude of your heart you live in your lips, and sound is a diversion and a pastime.
And in much of your talking, thinking is half murdered.
For thought is a bird of space, that in a cage of words may indeed unfold its wings but cannot fly.

Kahlil Gibran (1883 - 1931)

A Quote by Lewis Carroll on argument, fatherhood, laws, lawyers, talking, and speech

"In my youth," said his father, "I look to the law,
  And argued each case with my wife;
And the muscular strength, which it gave to my jaw
  Has lasted the rest of my life."

Lewis Carroll (1832 - 1898)
