Avoid Arguments With Silence

Be careful not to become involved in quarrels with your friends. Arguments will only create distance between you and others.

The most effective approach to avoid needless arguments is to master the ability to remain silent. You don't have to say everything you think of saying. At times there is an actual need to clarify a specific point and it's appropriate to speak up. But a large percentage of arguments come from making comments that don't need to be made.

(see Rabbi Eliyahu Eliezer Dessler - Michtav MaiEliyahu, vol.4, pp.244-5; Rabbi Pliskin's "Consulting the Wise")
