Bird by Bird - Anne Lamott

"You don't always have to chop with the sword of truth.  You can point with it too."

Some people say that you should call an 'Ace an Ace and a Spade a Spade', and you should ... but not always.  That's where this quote rings true for me.  Where some situations in life warrant the blind justice of a sword and others the compassionate precision of a scalpel.  You can choose to mute others with your truths, or convert them into being a mouthpiece for that truth. - And it's very likely to be determined in how you choose to approach a particular situation.
