Speech is conveniently located midway between thought and action, where it often substitutes for both.
John Andrew Holmes (b.1874)

Thought is the first step, speech the next, and action the only way to travel to any chosen destination. Different issues pose assorted difficulties for each step, but without the first being well-done, the second being done-well, ending up at where you intended is often impossible.
Talk is cheap, action dear, yet by spending enough time in thought and phrasing your map of action in a direct enough line, often makes it much easier to put your money where your mouth is. Telling others inspires a feeling of self-control that at times disappears soon after the dust settles, but most times it is much easier to follow through than to make excuses for why you did not.


My mind has been overflowing today with the plight of the multitude who are fleeing a bitch named, Rita. I saved one special corner for Nanner and her safety. And one corner was Zack's alone. Whatever strength or comfort that can travel with the good-will of pure thoughts, were directed the way of the ones most in need of it.
