I’m getting back into my inspirational reading again. I’m reading those Proverbs Paces. Some are more thought-provoking than others. Most of them, like the Proverbs, stress the male perspective— i.e., the “strange” woman taking his power. The one I’m reading now stresses the female perspective. It touched on P31. It spoke of discretion. As in, Discretion is the better part of valor. That doesn’t mean knowing when to shut-up like I thought it did. It means considering the consequences of possible actions. Acting, not reacting. Thinking ahead. All those Habits of Highly Effective People. Which is what Falstaff actually meant.
