The art of persuasion is for the soft-spoken. The guile and guise of a well-framed argument is everything. There will be people who can twist words and eventually twist you. And they hold a certain charm which makes them seem harmless.
Yet, honesty begets honesty. Genuine people need no sweet tongues, for they carry a different, hard-hitting way with words. They have a great moral compass and know their needs and where they’re needed.
Knives that cut don’t butter.
