Close Your Mouth

Following up on "Sit Still"...

It sounds like a scold from a parent, doesn't it? "Sit still. Close your mouth."

But listen again.

Ah yes, listen. Someone said, "You can't listen with your mouth open."

And Mark Twain, or Abe Lincoln, or somebody famous, said, "Better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt."

So there you have the two benefits of the closed mouth: (a) it's a listening aid, and (b) it makes you look wise!

Talk less; listen more; be wise.

You'll be happier.
