Good morning, Netizens…
First, we delve into some essential truths about ourselves through the quote of the day:
A diplomat… is a person who can tell you to go to hell in such a way that you actually look forward to the trip.
Caskie Stinnett (1911- ), Out of the Red (1960)
Unfortunately my fate in life has nearly always been that when I tell someone to go to hell, it takes them at least an hour, perhaps longer, before they realize I have already left the room. Thus in most cases, I seldom have an opportunity to find out whether they found the pathway or not.
In a similar vein of thought, when I describe a person’s sins, I always prefer to describe their personal demons in as graphic a manner as possible, so there is not one shred of doubt to what sins I am referring.
I hazard a guess that I will never aspire to nor be a diplomat. Based upon the quote of the day, could you be considered a diplomat?
