They say words can never hurt you.

Silence does a better job.
Another little thought I've had for a while. Sometimes, the best way to hurt someone's feelings is not to say anythng at all. You don't even have to break a sweat. :shrug:

I've been off and on. Hope you are well.

I quite agree that this is sometimes very true. I've been in a few of those situations. Very clever and relatable. Congrats on the DLR!

Yes, there are a lot of examples where it isn't so cut and dry. That's the thing about pithy little statements or aphorisms. They aren't always true 100% of the time.

Thank you so much, and for the feature as well! :rose:
