Those Who Know

A   L   O   H   A  !
" Who angers you 
conquers you. "

Elizabeth Kenny






" We are each of us 
angels 
with only one wing, 
and we can only fly 
by embracing
 one another. "

Lucretius 









Those who speak,
 don't know fully.

Those who know more 
rarely speak,
and then with gentle
humility.

Pity modern ears,
tempered by scorching
sales and
frantic self promotion,
deaf to confident
tranquility.

Words that matter
carry weight,
to be sprinkled like salt,
not a barrage gorging
 the Truth
for profit.

I love the part at the end. Is that pure, unadulterated Cloudia?

How very true. And listening is harder, and more valuable, than speaking.

It would be a wiser world if everyone spoke less and thought more before they said things that harmed others.
