pooja's answer is almost justyfying this formula

I f u wish to conserve more energy for useful work for mankind than speak few words as required. but, u have to attain the same by inculcating the habnit of yoga and pranaium etc. for communication u may not need to express in words.. there are manyways to express a particular matter with out using vocal chord.

A man/a woman can speak infinite number of words .it is as difficult as counting the number of hair on one's head ,to count how much a person speaks.
