Truth Screams

If you need to learn how to argue intelligently, you don’t have a real argument;
if you need to promote, you don’t have anything to sell;
if you need to network, you don’t have anything to offer;
if you need to prepare for a lecture, you don’t have anything to lecture about;
and if you need to learn how to improve your style, you don’t have anything to write about.

Truth is direct; it screams and doesn’t meander.

      • There are several ways to read this. If your writing needs an instruction on how to read it perhaps you need to learn how to improve your style.

      • Personally I find Nicholas Talrb’s style bold, entertaining, clever, controversial and thought provoking. It took him years to find a publisher for his first book because it was highly unconventional in style, contents and intent.
        Do you think that the fact that you can read a text in several ways is necessarily a flaw?

      • No, but I disagree with his arguments and since I found your response sarcastic I’ve been sarcastic myself. It’s actually something I try to avoid, so I’m not too pleased with myself here. But hey who’s perfect?
