Brevity

I use words to show none are needed. And I smile.

Brevity

As each petal is wise in the purpose and symmetry of a flower, so must be the words we choose, each an action with a will to bloom. Be brave, be brief, beware the power you wield; thoughtless use is profound abuse. Brevity is depth of character, the moral courage to speak to love in beauty’s light. Do not say, “I am right.” Say, rather, “Now is the time.”
