Benefits of silence

I learned a lot from Smith over the years. For example:

When playing trivial pursuit and the question regards occupation, answer prostitute, “because you can never go wrong with a hooker”.

Jamieson can not be substituted for the milk portion of ovaltine.

You can throw a sheet cake at someone in public and have them speak to you again.

But mostly, he taught me that sometimes you don’t get to know the answer. You don’t always get to know why someone loves you, no longer loves you, no longer talks to you, talks to you again You have to trust in what is/was and recognize that you may never understand the reasons, but that’s ok. You don’t get to ask the sun what it is thinking. Or you can, but it won’t answer. It will, however, keep shining just the same.
