I saw this...some where...online and it instantly reminded me of my dad. We were having a talk on the eve of my departure for the Air Fore. I confessed I was worried that I was too quiet, that by not being a yeller and screamer I would be somehow less. In his own typically quiet way he told me not to worry, that being the quietest one in the room wasn't a bad thing. "That way when you do yell, they know they should pay attention."
He was a very wise man.
