Confession is always weakness. The grave soul keeps its own secrets, and takes its own punishment in silence.
Only silence is great; all else is weakness.
silence is not weakness and decency is not pride
Silence is not our weakness, this is the power to forgive and accept you.
Silence is no weakness of language.
It is, on the contrary, its strength.
It is the weakness of words not to know this.
Silence is one of the great arts of conversation.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
The acknowledgment of our weakness is the first step in repairing our loss.
Thomas a Kempis
