A closed mouth catches no flies.
-Let me put an experience in this context: once i ran into problems with my neighbor here at office. I was severely agitated; i wanted to rebel back and protect my ego, but at the spur of the moment, as always, i went silent and started thinking of a better solution. That evening i called up my friends and one of theirs suggestion : stay calm; dont react impressed me the most. I obeyed it for the next 7 days and then felt so releived. Today somehow i remembered the incident and hence the quote. ;)
