Improvement On Silence

Before you speak, ask yourself, is it kind, is it necessary, is it true, does it improve on the silence?

Indian Guru, Sai Baba

I don't think it matters if it's "necessary" or "true" when you speak. There won't be fun in the conversation if you've to avoid much.

Amy, maybe so. But fun can be cruel at times.

This strikes me as very wise.

Zeri said...

Laoch, agreed. And difficult to abide by.

Well, truth can be cruel at times too.

Amy, very true.
