be silent / > zwijgen

'Zwijgen moet ge zelf doen.' ['Remaining silent is something you have to do yourself.'] Last sentence of the fragment of a letter in which the word croxhapox appears for the first time.  

‘Wie niet slim is, moet dom zijn.’ ['Whoever is not clever, should be thick'] In this context, if you don't mind, a quaote from the preface to the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus by Ludwig Wittgenstein: "Was sich überhaupt sagen lasst, lasst sich klar sagen; und wovon man nicht reden kann, darüber muss man schweigen."
