Comprehensive talkers are apt to be tiresome when we are not athirst for information; but, to be quite fair, we must admit that superior reticence is a good deal due to lack of matter. Speech is often barren, but silence also does not necessarily brood over a full nest.

Con la edad viene la experiencia y los conocimientos. lo más importante, permite a uno con una clara visión de ver a través del vidrio de la hora de la vida, como más arena ya ha escapado a través de ella con el tiempo.

These things may lead to a new insight or even a temporary change, however, real transformation requires the formation of new thinking patterns and behavioral habits.
