Speech is a precious gift and a vital tool, but too often our speaking is an evasion of truth, a way of buttressing our self-serving reconstructions of reality.

-Parker J. Palmer

Watch your own speech, and notice how it is guided by your less
conscious purposes.

-George Eliot

this hits right on the nose. the other day i was overly honest with someone. in no way did this make the person feel good or help move our relationship in a more positive direction. i simply felt full of myself.
