On conversation – The importance thereof
Conversation is an exchange of ideas about different topics. We mutually communicate our thoughts and feelings, nested in our minds and hearts.
Conversation can give us pleasant moments in our daily lives. We ease many situations, and at the same time we gather a lot of knowledge.
When conversing, we should respect the others’ opinions and, above all, when we speak with people who are experts in certain matters, we have to try to learn and not argue.
They who argue just for the sake of it, or simply because it is easy, are foolish, and the intelligent people who listen to them, instead of taking them seriously, will despise them.
It is more dignified to talk little and well, than much and poorly. When you have not got a good grasp of a subject, your silence and assent will be the most elegant position.
As on al the other occasions, always respect the opinion of the elderly, the ladies and the professionals, and, even when you notice a mistake, you should not correct them.
