“Tact is a skill that can turn brutal honesty into just honesty. It's
a skill that develops with practice, and one that's harder to use when
emotions are running high. But you can't go towards someone with a
verbal fist and expect a hug in return. When method matches intention,
outcomes are much more peaceful.”
