August 5, 2016: Praise
If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all: Words of wisdom handed down to young children as their eyes and ears adjust to the world. Praise in public, criticize in private: Words of wisdom handed down to younger adults as they leave the den and enter an unforgiving world where truths clash and loyalties tested. Take it or leave it, as with any bit of popular advice deemed relevant enough. If you take it, don’t abuse it. A human being can never have two faces for as long as it lives. Show the world your praise, and show those you know the remainder of you. The good, the bad, the ugly.
