Peace with Honor

Post by Timeout on Mon Oct 13, 2008 10:04 am

I received this last week from a wise and dear friend. She seems to always find a quote that says exactly what I need to hear (whether I want to hear it or not) in a gentle way that makes it easy to accept.

"...[know]...that truth spoken is a gift given. Truth withheld is more
than a gift denied, it is an arrow aimed at the heart.

It has been said that "the truth hurts," but the exact
opposite is true. No truth is too hurtful, and no lie is
harmless. Because every truth opens your heart to
another, and every lie separates it.

Yet know this: The way you say your truth can be hurtful.
So speak your truth, but soothe your words with peace."

I sewed a patch on my jacket back in the early '70's that said "Peace with Honor"...it's been a life's journey to strive for that balance.
