"As great minds have the faculty of saying a great deal in a few words, so lesser minds have a talent of talking much, and saying nothing."
– Francois de la Rochefoucauld [Tweet this quote]
When you write or speak, pick the words that matter, say what you need to, and get out of the way.
If people want to hear more from you, they'll ask.
