Lessons Learned the Loud Way

However correct I may feel about something, increased volume tends to compromise credibility.

Persuasion in the context of love rarely needs a microphone.

Wise is the one who recognizes the relationship between tone and reception. Between content and delivery. Between message and method.

Forgetting any of this makes it possible to be right and wrong at the same time.

Remembering any of this makes it possible to communicate more effectively, disagree more fairly, respect more fully, and love more genuinely.
