    "Never, 'for the sake of peace and quiet', deny your own experience or convictions".Dag Hammarskjold

    Was he was right?  Suggest it's important to be true to yourself.  What do you think?

    The legitimacy of one's experiences and convictions is unquestionable, but the nature perhaps is not. I agree with Hammarskjöld to the extent that I find the old rule "never discuss politics, religion, or money" wrong, but one must also be timely and realize that a certain time or place is not the optimal for particular kinds of discussions or confessions, and thus "never" is a strong word. However, to not voice your opinion or side of the story for the single reason of not wanting to stir things up is evasive and weak-minded, and those people need to find confidence in themselves to speak up and stand up.

    Sometimes you have to back up,before you go forward.Sometimes you have to look at the weak and the
    ones that are not so swift, when you have the ability to do so.
