Thought Food Thursday: Dorothy Neville

The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing in the right place but to leave usnaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.

You said it, sister.


  1. Love it.

    Leaving things unsaid is truly an art.

  2. So true. I think many people would benefit and avoid a lot of grief if they could remember to think before speaking more often.

  3. Bingo. I believe they called it "tact." I believe it is too close to a lost art, with texting, FaceBook, and this seeming NEED to have people respond immediately to our requests, and a seeming need to hit "send" or its equivalent without reviewing what we have written.

  4. That's a comment I plan to record in my book of memorable quotes

  5. I need to learn far I have been unsuccessful:)

  6. Right on! As a master of verbal disaster, I plead guilty on all counts. I wish I could take back so many of those words. If only Steve Jobs could have invented an app that pops up and says something like, "Whooaa...are you really sure you want to say that?"

  7. I need to write this on my forearm with a Sharpie.

    And wear a short-sleeved shirt.

    :-) Anna

  8. is it my eyes or did I read 'usnaid' instead of unsaid? leave it to my smartass training from other bloggers to point that out...

    but agree on post!
