Delphic Maxim of the Week 3/20
Speak Plainly | Ἁπλῶς διαλέγου
Delphic Maxim of the Week. Speak Plainly, Ἁπλῶς διαλέγου.
“Speak honest, speak plain, so that people can understand you. Some people are so in love with fancy words and elaborate speech, but what good is it for, when people do not understand you? Clarity is an important quality of the Light, and Apollo is the God of Light, so he wants us to add to clarity, not cloud things in confusing phrases and misleading words. Speak clear and simple. Use words wisely, or you end up more hiding what you want to say, than actually clearing up the matter. People who always use crooked words and flowery speeches - take heed of them!”
