3rd November Quote

My father had taught me to be nice first, because you can always be mean later, but once you've been mean to someone, they won't believe the nice anymore.

This should be taught to every child, unfortunately lots of them learn the other way around, mostly from observing their elders.

Excellent quote, but
Anneliese is correct, that's too bad.

I start out being nice and I continue to be nice as long as I'm being treated nice. But I have no qualms about being "assertive".but not nasty, when need be. I can be very direct.

One of my favorite movies is "Steel Magnolias " and the saying "Lord luv a duck".
