Apples of Gold
As a writer (at least I like to think of myself that way) I find it easier to express my thoughts in written form rather than through oral discourse. For me, eloquent thoughts, organization, editing, and self filtering are more easily applied to print than to speech (although I have made a few written snafu’s in my time).
Being able to say the right thing at the right time is a wonderful gift, but a talent – nonetheless – of which I cannot boast. However, it does give me something to aspire to.
A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
