The virtue of silence is a topic I keep stumbling on in recent readings. This is primarily written to share these two quotes:

Many’s the man lost much just because he missed a perfect opportunity to say nothing.

from “Foster” by Claire Keegan

Il a manqué une occasion de se taire. (He missed an opportunity to keep his mouth shut.)

from “My Untranslatable Novel” by Vanina Marsot
