A Word to the Verbose

24 Jan

My “guardian angel” left this quote from St. Francis de Sales on my desk a couple years ago, and it’s been there ever since. Since today is his feast day, I thought I would share it with our readers:

“The worst defect in talking is talking too much. Hence, in speech be brief and virtuous, brief and gentle, brief and simple, brief and charitable, brief and amiable.”

Okay, I get the message. (Don’t have to hit me over the head!) Need I look further for a New Year’s resolution?
