Always speak the truth, think before you speak, and write it down afterwards.
At the end of the day, there are some things you just can't help but talk about. Some things we just don't want to hear, and some things we say because we can't be silent any longer. Some things are more than what you say, they're what you do. Some things you say because there's no other choice. Some things you keep to yourself. And not too often, but every now and then, some things simply speak for themselves.
It's very important in life to know when to shut up. You should not be afraid of silence.
