A Chinese proverb says, “A single conversation across the table with a wise person is worth a month’s study of books.”  Let’s be like that wise person.  We don’t have to say everything we think, and we don’t have to have the last word in every conversation.  A harsh word stirs up anger, so we should rejoice when we restrain ourselves from speaking unkind thoughts.  As British writer Dorothy Nevil put it, “the real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right place but to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.”
