I quote from Théun's books, "Silence, inner and outer, is the gateway to true knowledge, whilst the masterful use of words, both in talking and listening, is the gateway to freedom. Silence and words are but two sides of the same coin, namely communication - the unspoken word often conveying even more than that spoken. Finally it should be realised that in his use of words the warrior is really in search of knowledge. The acquisition of such knowledge, however, requires skill."
With warm regards,
