I am blessed to be a witness

Talk can never be anything but futile unless both speaker and listener really understand what is being said, and one has only to open a newspaper or popular magazine, or listen to a sermon or a political speech, to realize that such understanding is extremely rare. Language and understanding are alike vague, and as long as this is the case, talk will remain a hindrance to right action rather than a help.
