He who has become aware of his sins has controlled his tongue, but… a talkative person has not yet gotten to know himself as he should. The friend of silence draws near to God, and by secretly conversing with Him, is enlightened by God. The silence of Jesus put Pilate to shame, and by a man’s stillness vainglory is vanquished.
