My three quotes: July 21

Here’s another round of the three quote challenge.

The first, ho ho, an old Arabic proverb.

Open your mouth only if what you are going to say is more beautiful than silence.

The second, a short poem from the acclaimed Li Po, a Chinese romantic from the eight century.

The birds have vanished into the sky,

and now the last cloud drains away. 

We sit together, the mountain and me,

until only the mountain remains.

And lastly, a classic, though these have all been classics in the official sense.

Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

Mark Twain
