Cheap Words

I saw this some time ago and it resonated. Probably too late in life I figured out words are cheap. Not even dollar store cheap with the utilitarianism those purchases bring. No just cheap.

I’m a watcher. I let others think I’m clueless. Then when they’ve shown me enough of their hand I’m done. And there’s no going back after that.

I have been known to extend this deliberation period for longer than I should have with some people which is why they are so surprised when I finally fill up of their BS. I gave them the impression I would take what they were handing out forever. Probably need to work on managing the expectations of the self absorbed and a**-holic.

Of course I research everything and turns out (no surprise) that the above is not the real quote. The real quote is below and is so much better than the bastardized one.

Don’t say things. What you are stands over you the while, and thunders so that I cannot hear what you say to the contrary.

– Emerson
