– Vasilii Semenovich PankratovRate it:
Algunas personas creen que el silencio es oro, y que el silencio habla más que mil palabras. En mi opinión, no es cierto. Silencio menudo representa los restos de sus miedos, defectos e inseguridades. Silencio significa su incapacidad e impotencia para responder a la realidad. Los sonidos más tristes de silencio se escucharon en la más profunda oscuridad que siguió genocidios nazis, 9/11, el tsunami y Katrina. El silencio no es oro en absoluto, y que sin duda se vuelve en tu contra. Asi, siempre se atreven a hablar en su mente, y la vida se convertirá en suave y sin problemas de flujo libre. la vie continuar!
