学会说话只要两年,懂得沉默却要五十年

Xuéhuì shuōhuà zhǐyào liǎng nián, dǒngdé chénmò què yào wǔshí nián
It takes 2 years to learn how to talk, but 50 years to learn how to keep quiet.

【沉默】

我們花了兩年學會說話,卻要花上六十年才懂得沉默

在這個眾生喧嘩的年代,大多數人都擁有一流的說話技術,“說”固然能提高溝通素質,但有時越說越多,反而造成彼此漸行漸遠。須知,有效的溝通在於讀懂人心,而不停的說話,往往卻變成不了解對方,結果矛盾加深。適時的沉默,才是攻占人心的關鍵。

This Chinese proverb is a classic issue we see going around us today – Many speak their mind but keep it closed. When your minds are not open, the ability for one to learn reduces greatly. This proverb teaches us the meaning of being able to absorb life learnings. Yet, it also teaches us how to command self control.

The idea of “keeping quiet” isn’t literal. Take one step back and look at who we are today. We keep to our own world(s) most of the time, shutting the door to wisdom. Remaining calm, keeping self control, having a steady flow of thought and being open enough to accept ideas are essential to obtaining wisdom.
