Thought of the Day - William Blake

'A truth that's told with bad intent beats all the lies you can invent.' That quote comes from William Blake, a remarkably clever chap. It is so woefully, painfully, opposite. Nothing hurts like the truth. Nothing does more damage. Nothing cuts more deeply. To turn the truth from a noble shield to a vicious sword, you don't even have to twist it. You just have to give it the slightest quizzical spin. 'I see. And you thought that was the right thing to do, did you?' But the truth is never be afraid of anything.
