Be Silent and Listen

Speaking and teaching are the master’s task; the disciple is to be silent and listen.”The Rule of St. Benedict in English, Chapter 6

I am a simple guy.  When I speak, I typically say few words.  When I write, I am usually succinct.  And that’s OK.  It gives me more time to see what Bennett, Greenfield, Katz, Spence and a whole host of others have to say.

    Be happy. You are very intelligent to “listen”.
    A wonderful world of “Obedince” opens its doors to one who desires to “listen”.
