Thought for the day

I don’t  actually know who wrote this quote, but realised it was one to share when I saw it.

The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.

I am not sure if your reaction will be the same as mine, but I had flash back moment remembering when I have been listening to an impassioned speech and internally shouting, “OH YOU ARE WRONG!”

Worse still, then going on to politely make it known why they were wrong…

Not good.

There is nothing wrong with voicing your opinion, in fact I would encourage it, but there is something honourable on occasion, to just keep your mouth shut.  Let the somebody have their moment, but maybe only once?
