31. I learned early to sit quietly and observe
I would argue loudly until one day someone I truely admired told me "sit quietly and observe". "Just watch". I thought that would be impossible, but then, that is when I learned the most, to just be quiet and observe. That is when I learned to ask the questions that I ask. People who are listening to the debate, got so much more from my silence than my argueing. When you ask questions and they cannot answer or defend anymore says volumns for those who are listening. When it becomes a screamfest, it turns off everyone.
