From Memoirs of a Geisha:
Hatsumomo: Sometimes, the smartest remark is silence.
Sayuri: What better advice to follow than your own.
An excellent comeback–not to mention very funny 🙂 One that could be used in so many situations today. Speaking of silence, I think many people could do with some silence. Everything today is about chatting, blabbing, talking when you don’t have to or when you don’t know what you’re talking about. Most people will never give up talking all the time, so I guess it’s up to us silent types to do it for them.
