Something meaningful.

A saint asked his disciples, 'Why do we shout in anger? Why do people shout at each other when they are upset?'

Disciples thought for a while, one of them said, 'Because we lose our calm, we shout for that.' 

'But, why to shout when the other person is just next to you?' asked the saint. 'Isn't it possible to speak to him or her with a soft voice? Why do you shout at a person when you're angry?'

Disciples gave some other answers but none satisfied the saint.

Finally he explained, 'When two people are angry at each other, their hearts distance a lot. To cover that distance they must shout to be able to hear each other. The angrier they are, the

stronger they will have to shout to hear each other through that great distance.'

Then the saint asked, 'What happens when two people fall in love? They don't shout at each other but talk softly,why? Because their hearts are very close. The distance between them is very

small...'

The saint continued, 'When they love each other even more, what happens? They do not speak, only whisper and they get even closer to each other in their love. Finally they even need not whisper, they only look at each other and That's all. That is how close two people are when they love each other.'

I'm extremely peace loving and play the peace making person most of the time, have peace in your heart and there's no need to raise your voice to get heard. Loudness is because each try to out do and stress on the "volume" of their words but both forgotten, "volume" means it occupies space but may not carries any "weight" in itself in some cases. Strength in words, does not rely on the volume, most people forget when their head is fillled with too much hot air.
