Think during silence

If you are in a meeting where everybody talks a lot, keep silent and think of what others say. Never afraid to be quiet because it is a privilege - you have time to think and catch the conversation's emotions. After a while, you'll decide to speak or decide that it is not worth doing. While others who have already said everything will not have this privilege. Roman statesman, lawyer, scholar and Academic sceptic Marcus Tullius Cicero said that silence within the conversation is an art. As a painter who chooses colours, a participant can creatively select when and what type of silence to use and when to start and end it.
