Quote Of The Week

What, in your opinion, is more important, silence or proving a point? Suppose you have a valid point to counter an argument (say, in a relationship), what would you do? Would you proceed with your point and throw the relationship under the bus? Or, you would hold the point and save the relationship?

A mature person cares more for relationships than proving his/her point. They know that it is not always necessary to prove a point just to win an argument. They understand and appreciate the value of silence, and don’t like polemics and persuasion. They choose their battles wisely and never feel the need to always have the last word. They avoid unnecessary arguments and conflicts and prefer inner peace.

They understand when to stay silent and when to speak. They don’t act impulsively or indulge in unnecessary arguments. They choose to keep quiet to maintain their inner peace.

  1. Again a thought provoking quote and commentary. Of course silence is more important than proving a point. Personally, I would like to hold the point and save the relationship. But, it requires a great deal of patience and discipline. Usually, we rush to win the argument. Agreed that silence sometimes speaks louder than words and only mature people understand the value of silence. In Urdu, it is said “Aik Chup, Hazar Sukh”.


  2. I very much agree with what you said in this post and the quote. I think the older we get the more we realise how important of a skill listening is and we learn to pick our battles which means in some instances we choose to remain silent.
