Another wise quote.....


Added note as of 7.50 a.m. - 1-25-2012

You've left some wonderful comments and I have loved reading them.  I agree with Elephant Child when back in our childhood we used to hear, and still do no doubt, "If you can't say anything nice, say nothing at all." and Arija's comment, "All too true.  It may be a truism to say nothing if you have nothing good to say, but it is as much of a sin not to say something good when you can."  I agree whole-heartedly.

Oh yes. We were certainly told often 'if you can't say something nice, say nothing' and it is as true today as it was in my childhood when dinosaurs roamed the earth.

This is a wonderful reminder to watch what we say because it can hurt.

Arija said...

All too true. It may be a truism to say nothing if you have nothing good to say, but it is as much of a sin not to say something good when you can.

A lovely photo and a wonderful sentiment, Denise.

I loved your typewriter post (think it was Monday), my husband is in publishing, editing, proof reading etc. so the poem was a scream, I know he will think so too when I draw his attention to it.

So true, so true! Thanks for the gentle reminder.

Agree here too, altho written properly helpful criticism can help at times. Like -

I think this shot shows how good a photographer you are Denise

Cute photo and I love that quote... It's hard for me to keep QUIET--but sometimes it's BEST not to say what you want to at times....

I need to keep that quote next to me at all times... ha
Hugs,
Betsy

You had a gorgeous, gorgeous day! Even with no eagles. I love all the photos, and especially love that wonderful Great Dane!
