    My understanding of your quote is, if you don’t want something to spread out, just keep your mouth shut. Because once it gets out to the public it will be very hard to contain it.

      That’s exactly what I was thinking when I said this. You are obviously very intelligent. 🙂

    It’s the whole truth. Sometimes it’s best to let go of what hinders your success.

    Absolutely true. Th best ting to do is not to open the flood gate in the first place. Think clearly before you embark on something.

    Whoever tries that is a joker. Nobody can stop the course of nature and such a person will go with the flow.

    We can’t control our life specially death. We just have to accept anything that happens and move on.

    This is true, but there is also an option of not opening the flood gate. The same in life, there are options to go or to forgo.

    As the way I put it sometimes things are not in our control. If that happens at times all we can do is sit back and watch. That is life.
