Apocryphote of the Day: 5-7-08

When you ought to act, do not say a word.
While it is a skill to speak, it is also a skill to be silent.
It is better for you to be defeated while speaking the truth,
than to be victorious through deceit.
May your life confirm your words before those who hear (them).

Sentences of Sextus 163b, 164b-165a, 177 (NHC XII,1)
