waste no words
Can the expression "waste no words" be used to mean that something or someone is silent about something, i.e., does not say anything about a subject?
E.g., the book wastes no words on his youth years.
Re: waste no words
Possibly, but I would say it relates to the Latin phrase "verbum sat sapienti est" or a word to the wise is sufficient, you don't need to be verbose when concision is enough.
