Should anyone ever utter a thing that hurts another's feelings? An unpleasant truth, though true, must not be uttered. For that grows into a habit by indulging in rude words, one's nature becomes rude. One's sensitivity is lost if one has no control over one's speech. And once a man casts all consideration for others to the winds, he stops at nothing. The Master would say, 'if you have to ask a lame man how he became lame', then you have to speak thus: 'How did your leg come to such a condition?'
