Excerpt

“Those who know don’t talk

those who  talk don’t know

seal the opening

close the gate

dull the edge

untie the tangle

soften the light’

and join the dust”

(Page 112)

 

Hermit Poet’s Comments: A good leader does not continuously tell everyone how great they are. The fast talker who promises the world, most of the time delivers nothing.
