This proverb highlights several benefits of keeping quiet: (1) It is the best policy if you have nothing worthwhile to say: (2) It allows you the opportunity to listen and learn; (3) It gives you something in common with those who are wiser.  Make sure to pause to think and to listen so that when you do speak, you will have something important to say.
