Things Unsaid



"Before you speak ask yourself if what you are going to say is true, is kind, is necessary, is helpful. If the answer is no, maybe what you are about to say should be left unsaid. "
Bernard Meltzer






 "Remember not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment. "
Benjamin Franklin



Dress- Old Navy Sandals and Belt- Target Earrings- so old I can't remember :(


"The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone. "
Harriet Beecher Stowe
 
 
 

 
 
"We are masters of the unsaid words, but slaves of those we let slip out. "
Winston Churchill

You know what I mean?

The first quote reminds me of a Bible verse, Philippians 4:8:

8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. (NIV)

This is the dress you wore the very first time I commented, a post called Floral Feedback:

I loved it then and I love it now! The way you picked up on the colors in the floral pattern is lovely. I can't believe that was only 2-1/2 months ago - I feel like I've "known" you forever. I love you and your blog!

Looking so pretty in the floral print, Katie! These quotes are words to live by. Sometimes I should think a bit more before I speak and other times I should probably speak my mind more!

This blog post reminds me of yoga class; but with pretty pictures instead of sweat and fatigue. Love your outfit!

The aqua belt with this dress is the perfect touch. :) I think Ben Franklin's quote would be great on a classroom wall!

Do I even need to tell you what I like about this outfit? Since we're so much on the same wavelength, I think you already know.
