" It takes your enemy and your friend, working together,to hurt you to the heart: the one to slander you and the other to get the word to you ."---Mark Twain

It should be Sunday proverb.

Love Mark Twain! Saw a PBS documentary about Mark Twain that left me thinking he wasn't quite the rapscallion I'd always thought.

This saying is deep, and I've experienced it personally on more than one occasion. Living through a friend feeling she just HAS to let me know something, has taught me to be prudent and know when to keep my mouth shut!

Yes, and then when the friend feels compelled to pass the damaging words on to you, you find out that s/he is really not that great of a friend after all....
