Eloquence of silence

We speak too much of so little Like we truly know that much of so much Yet there’s so much We know so little about Speech ought to be For knowing minds, not talking lips Those who know as much ought to Speak so little of much Not of secrecy, or pride But of eloquent silence In which pure knowledge find profound expression.
