I just had a thought:

When your mouth opens, your mind closes.

It’s a bit of a self-reminder to shut up occasionally and just listen. Like all pompous impressive-sounding aphorisms, it’s not 100% true … but it just may have a kernel of authenticity.

The interesting corollary that suggested itself to me is:

When your mind opens, your mouth closes.

Hrm … it’s just possible that no-one else has ever said the first version.

  • Reminds me of a passage from the New Testament book of James about being “slow to speak and quick to listen”.

    Good reminder!
