Silence and smile are two powerful tools. Smile is the way to “solve” many problems and silence is the way to “avoid” many problems. (Betsy Shuttleworth, exercise guru)
Did you know that “smiles” is the longest word in the dictionary? There’s a mile between the first and last letter. Seriously, without a word, a smile can charm, or a smile can disarm. It can lift another’s spirit and it can help avoid a conflict. The next time you’re tempted to sound off, don’t say a word. Smile!
A quiet spirit can overcome even great mistakes (Ecclesiastes 10:4).
Fools vent their anger, but the wise quietly hold it back (Proverbs 29:11).
