Suffering in Silence: It is the calm and silent water that drowns a man

People quietly drown only a few strokes away from help because of pride and fear. Silent people can be dangerous, suffering alone is dangerous, and despair is more destructive than physical illness.


African proverbs teach us the smartest people have drowned in calm waters. Drowning in negative thoughts and emotions, the deepest waters have the smoothest surfaces but move very fast and are tumultuous on the underneath.
