Enough Said

"Only if we can restrain ourselves is conversation possible. Good talk rises upon much self-discipline."

-John Erkine, The Complete Life

I lied. I feel compelled to leave a little comment. I rarely regret what I haven't said, but frequently regret what I have. Far too often it is those little extras and mindless additions that not only detract from a conversation but leave me wishing I had just sat still. This leads me to another quote I like:

"Be still when you have nothing to say; When genuine passion moves you, say what you've got to say and say it hot."

-D.H. Lawrence

And now, enough said.
