I have never been hurt by what I have not said.

Calvin Coolidge

The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right place but to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.

Probably good things to keep in mind, but me muses, Dorothy and Oscar, would most certainly disagree.

I'm somewhere betwixt the two schools of thought.

Old Silent Cal, he was president when I was born. No, I don't remember him. I believe laconic might be a good adjective.

Good morning, Anneliese - I don't agree with Cal totally - sometimes thing unsaid at the moment they are needed to be said can be hurtful, such as a praise for something done or
a caution for something about to happen.
