    Mahatma Gandhi Quotes
    “I must say that, beyond occasionally exposing
    me to laughter, my constitutional shyness has
    been no dis-advantage whatever. In fact I can
    see that, on the contrary, it has been all to my
    advantage. My hesitancy in speech, which was
    once an annoyance, is now a pleasure. Its
    greatest benefit has been that it has taught me
    the economy of words. I have naturally formed
    the habit of restraining my thoughts. And I can
    now give myself the certificate that a
    thoughtless word hardly ever escapes my
    tongue or pen. I do not recollect ever having
    had to regret anything in my speech or writing.
    I have thus been spared many a mishap and
    waste of time. Experience has taught me that
    silence is part of the spiritual discipline of a
    votary of truth. Proneness to exaggerate, to
    suppress or modify the truth, wittingly or
    unwittingly, is a natural weakness of man, and
    silence is necessary in order to surmount it. A
    man of few words will rarely be thoughtless in
    his speech; he will measure every word. We
    find so many people impatient to talk. There is
    no chairman of a meeting who is not pestered
    with notes for permission to speak. And
    whenever the permission is given the speaker
    generally exceeds the time-limit, asks for more
    time, and keeps on talking without permission.
    All this talking can hardly be said to be of any
    benefit to the world. It is so much waste of
    time. My shyness has been in reality my shield
    and buckler. It has allowed me to grow. It has
    helped me in my discernment of truth.”
