Einstein Breaks His Silence

I am not sure if its a true story. But thought to it will be worthwhile to share

Albert Einstein was apparently a late talker and his parents were worried about his mental development. 

At last, at the supper table one night, he broke his silence to say, "The soup is too hot." 

Greatly relieved, his parents asked why he had never said a word before. 

Albert replied, "Because up to now everything was in order."

This is an amazing short example of 'economy of words'. How you can convey more meaning by speaking less. 

 Speaking and listening in a balanced way are imperative in our world. The noise of useless words that many of us are throwing away in an attempt to get a grip on someone's attention, creates a thick fog that makes it really difficult to actually understand each other. Ironically, the more we talk, the less we’re able to communicate.
