Build Quietly

I think the best of our strengths are quiet.

Seek no attention.

And build quietly within our character.

I need to work a little harder on that quiet part.

    This is wonderful adage, I have a few strengths of character, but I’ll definitely have to work extremely hard on the quietness within, I’ve been known to be disruptive, but happily not eruptive….. Thanks for a reminding prompt……

    yes the picture is funny in different directions…but the poem for itself aswell! Ivor I never thought, that you were disruptive, you were always an idol of reticence. It is more a reminder for me…still water are deep, blabbermouth are annoying.

    Todays world would greatly benefit from being quiet and getting out of self. So very true and I adore the snicker…hiding smiles.

    what’s that adage? better to be thought a fool, than to open one’s mouth and remove all doubt?

    Oh dear! You set a high bar, Colleen. I suppose I could work on those quiet parts, too! 🙂


  15. Oh dear, where would I be without the silence. That is when I watch myself the most and watch my mind. Every now and then however I have to sing, or have a belly laugh because my mind has lots to say and then it is not so quiet.
