More Silence

Post by Soul Seeker » Fri Nov 07, 2008 2:37 am

While in London recently I went to the National Gallery and came across a self portrait by Salvator Rosa. In the painting the artist was leaning agaist a stone pillar that had inscribed on it on Latin:

Aut Tace, Aut
Loquere Meliora
Silentio

Translated

Be Silent unless
what you have to
say is better
than Silence
