I agree... Agatha Christie _ Preferring silence over articulating wisdom produces nothing good; likewise is to stick too rigidly to one's principles.

I just came to sense that is so true.

Thank you so much Justin Excellence.

What is one to do? Relax rigid principles so one could "see" (meet, associate with) everybody? Tell me who your friends are...I'll tell you all about your principles.
